Think Pink

This was a quick card for the challenge on Just Bex.

Sunny day

The sunshine certainly makes you feel better, doesn't it. I managed to get out today - a friend picked me up and we went for a sandwich lunch locally - very enjoyable - nice to get out, and so glad I was feeling more like it than I have been.

Before I went I managed to finish off the cover of the mini book I started for one of the challenges on Carolyn - to celebrate our wedding anniversary this coming Friday - and I also did the introduction pages. Don't know whether I'll get it finished before 'the day'. Things have kept going wrong with it - all part of a learning curve.

(I've deleted the pictures of the mini book cover etc because I've now put them all together with the rest of the book in a post above.

When I came back from lunch I made a cuppa and settled down in my armchair to have a go at Challenge 14 on Carolyn's - to incorporate sewing on a card. I decided to use a paisley pricking stencil that I've had for a while but never used. Having done the silver backstitch on the pricked outlines, I outlined the paisley patterns with pen and then decided to try doodling in the patterns. I'm quite pleased with the result.

I did manage a few other bits and pieces for the Big Challenge yesterday and might show them later. Time now to go and have some more painkillers and rest. I know this blog is just about the crafty aspect of life, but I will just mention that I had a call from the doctor's surgery yesterday to say that the results of the bone density scan are back and the doc wants to see me - so I have an appointment late tomorrow afternoon. I just wish the pain from the fracture would calm down.
