Have a super day whatever you're doing. I was taken out for a latte and a teacake yesterday by my lovely hubby and we met Shannen there. Bless them, it was lovely to have a change of scenery. It was only my 2nd time out since my bowel operation. I needed to try as I have my check up at hospital on Monday.

Have a nice weekend lovely friends.
Thanks for popping y and for all your lovely comments.

Good Luck

Hello,
I thought I'd pop by and post a card I made at the weekend. It was good to make a man's good luck card for a change. Nice to get inky too.

For my card I used 2 clarity stencils, my clarity letterbox kit and 1 of the wee folk stamps. 

Challenges:

Hope you're all well. Thanks for popping by to see me.

Challenges:
Here's hoping you're all well and doing fine. Everything is going well here. A couple of friends came to see me on Sunday which was lovely. I'd not seen them for a few months due to my op. Then my Dad popped round so we sat in the garden. It was a busy day. I fell asleep at about 7.30. 

My friend Jenn popped around yesterday morning for a coffee and a catch up. So much socializing .... 
Thanks for popping by lovely bloggy friends. It's taking me some time to get back into commenting so please bear with me. I'm improving each day, I get frustrated with what I can't do but I've just got to be patient.

Hope you're all okay and having a good day whatever you're doing. Thanks for popping by. My Mum travelled back home on Sunday so I'm trying to be good and resting lots. There'll be no crafting for a while but when I am able I'll be playing again. 
Our new carpet still hasn't been fitted which is a pain but it didn't arrive in the shop until I was home from the hospital... grrr... I wanted all the mess and upheaval to be over. I've put it on hold until I know I can go out for the morning to Shannen's or a friend's as I don't want to be around when they do it.
Take care. Big hugs Debbie xxx

Sorry I've not been commenting much but I've been preparing to go back into hospital for a bowel operation. As you read this I should be getting all ready for theatre. The are so good at Castle Hill hospital in Hull. I'll be in for a week to 10 days. It's a big op again so it might be a while until I can comment so please bear with me. 
Thanks for all your support as always. Thinking of you all.
