long overdue post

It seems like ages since I last posted but I do have an excuse as I have had a foot operation.  Actually that's a pretty flimsy excuse isn't it, as I don't craft or type with my feet and, as I am off work recovering and unable to walk about without the aid of crutches, I have plenty of time on my hands to make cards.  I got my son to fill a large storage box with craft stuff and made a card yesterday, though I have to confess neither of the above are that card, as I couldn't manage to get to the PC to scan it in....maybe tomorrow!  Fortunately I have a laptop which has kept me entertained the last few days, hence this post which features two cards made  a couple of months ago.  One uses the gorgeous poppy image and backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Royal Horticultural Society CD with the addition of red ribbon and a stamped sentiment and the other a Tilda Magnolia stamped image coloured to match a rather bright card blank.  The sentiment was made with Cuttlebug and nestie dies.

Great set of cards - both are bright and fresh in different ways.

Hope your foot recovers soon but don't over do things!
