As most of you will be aware I havn't had the best of weeks. However, amongst the doom and gloom I had some lovely cards and packages from my dear blogging friends which have really helped cheer my days!

Thank you Jo and Amy for these wondeerful cards and the lovely package of goodies you sent me, im looking forward to colouring in some of the gorgeous images you sent me, and inking up that lovely Claires fairy image. The card on the left has been made by Jo's daughter Amy isn't it fabulous? thank you Amy you are going to give your mum some serious competition in the card making!!

My dear friend Jill is constantly supporting me and she sent me this gorgeous card, and also some lovely things she brought at a craft show. She is ever generous, thinking so much of others! Thank you Jill im looking forward to having a play with it all and I appreciate your constant support. You make sure you get some me time as you so deserve it my friend!

This gorgeous card was from my fairly new friend Emma, who also sent me some images to colour and other goodies, but for some reason the photo didn't load! i think she knows me too well already if the card is anything to go by!!! Emma has also been very supportive of me the last few weeks and I so appreciate it. She has also had a bereavement in the family recently, just want to say I am thinking of you hun and you know where I am should you need me.

Arent these just fabulous cards, using the fantastic Whiff of Joy stamps? The card on the left is from my lovely friend Zoe, who has been having a hard time recently. Her children have been poorly and now she is feeling a little under the weather. Despite that she still found time and made me this beautiful card and sent me some lovely images and papers. Thank you Zoe I loved it all and can't wait to have a play with it, get plenty of rest hun so you get back to your usual self and get back to your crafting! Big hugs to you and the little ones.

The gorgeous card on the left was from the talented Aija, and included were some gorgeous hanglar images, also she sent me some delicious finnish chocolates, which i've eaten already, they were delicious, how did you know I love chocolate Aija?

This is the inside of Aijas card, she always pays such great attention to detail!! I adore all her cards. Thank you Aija, there is something on the way to you as we speak!!

Finally I also received some lovely images from my friend Poppy, thank you Pops I really love them, and am looking forward to using them on some cards! I hope your water is all back to normal now and that you've managed to get plenty of crafting in!! Hugs to you too.

A week or so ago, I won this gorgeous tilda project on the adorable Annies blog. Isn't this the cutest little thing you've seen? and its all made from a toilet roll!!! Yes i will never look at an empty toilet roll in the same light again, im starting to collect them! Thank you Annie, as you know I was thrilled when I found out i'd won this, i shall find a special place in my craft room to display it, thank you.

Wow, thats it I think. I have to say I am totally overhwelmed by everyones kind words on my accident, and for the emails that I have received concerning it. To each and every one of you (you know who you are) I am grateful for your support and am sending big hugs to you all x
