hellloooooo, long time no see eh? Momentous day today as Ian has been to the physio for the first time, they made him stand up and walk...only 5 steps, but still it is a start. He now has exercises to do every 4 hours, and he is back there on Monday.
Meet my new little friend. Christmas monkey, he came in a box of tea bags, and joins my other little monkey. I think new monkey was a little wary, as original monkey has a scary looking lip piercing, but i am sure they will be friends in no time. I am thinking now there are 2 of them they really should have proper names.
This is truly the highlight of the week, the wonderful, talented and quite barmy Doone is having a giveaway on her blog. This is to celebrate her first 50 followers, for each person she is making a bespoke ATC. How generous is that!
I asked for an ATC incorporating her 'NoFear ' face and a giraffe. I was meant to be number 4, but i asked to be number 12 instead lol also there had to be no yellow, as yellow is a bad and wrong colour hahaha
So here it is, all tactile, and shiny and just basically amazing, so much so i thought it deserved to be in a frame. So I removed the glass and attached the ATC using silicone glue, hopefully it will hold it ok. It is now stood on my chest of drawers.
A while ago I bought this bakers twine, it looks great on cards and layouts. I got mine from Andrea, She comes down to our monthly crop, is a lovely person and has just opened her own little webshop, selling fab buttons,twine and ribbons. Go and check her out.
In a previous post i made a blue and copper journal page for a challenge on Ky's blog. I was very lucky to win and this is the fab little haul she sent to me. Ky has a weekly challenge, go on over and check out this weeks.
Next in the post came a packet of ATC backgrounds from the gorgeous and hugely inspiring Dede. she also sent a little wallet made out of BG, my fave paper brand. How fab are they all!
