I'm off work today feeling poorly with a severe eye infection. Ended up spending most of yesterday afternoon in the hospital being checked out as the doctor thought I may have cellutitis. Fortunately, for me that is not the case but still feeling very miserable. Have been doing some blog hopping today to cheer me up and to get some new ideas. I have come across some fabby blog candy on my travels and so have posted them too. Have posted a card below which I made for Mother's Day on Sunday. I liked the first one so much I decided to make another exactly the same. The papers were from a Shabby Princess Kit I bought a wee while ago called Meet Me in Paris, the papers are absolutely gorgeous. It was my first ever attempt at paper piecing and I think I've done not too badly. I have wanted to try this for ages and I'm glad I had a wee go, will definitely be doing more of this. The sentiment stamp is cuddly buddly and have used stickles on the tilda image.
It will be my blogoversary next Tuesday which I can't believe! How can a year go past so quickly? In that time my cardmaking skills have definitely improved (well I think and hope so anyway!), I have met many great friends as a result and have learned many new things that I never knew existed. I also joined the Sisterhood of Blogging Stampers and met many wonderful ladies and new friends as a result when I was starting out. They are such a great group of ladies who support you no matter what crisis you are having! I am planning on doing a little blog candy to celebrate this and have begun putting together a few bits and pieces. I will post about it as soon as I have gotten it altogether, hopefully this weekend. I have two parents evening to do next week so will be kept busy with that.
