Blog Hop at Creative Crew Challenge

Oh yes, its Saturday and the bank holiday week, i can't tell you how much ive been looking forward to it. Not been having a good couple of days, despite the gorgeous weather we've been lucky enough to have. I am feeling very tired and generally low. Hoping it will change come the end of the weekend.

So my lovelies, there is chance to win some absolutely fabulous candy over on Tasha's blog. Wish i wasn't on the DT so i could take part myself!!! If this is the first time you've heard about this please go to Joeys blog for the first clue and over to Tashas, to find out how you can join in the fun.

So you have to find the missing letter within my post. Hope you can manage to find it!

Thank you to all of you who've sent good wishes to my dad. He is making a steady recovery. Hopefully he will soon be back to his normal self. We have registered him online to be rehoused here in Essex, we need to wait 14 days to hear of any progress. It will save me alot of worrying if dad is here near us, although his friends have been very good caring for him, they are pensioners themselve and inevitably they won't be able to do it indefinately. Dad is happy to move now, so its the best all round.

I havn't really felt in the mood to craft for the last few days, but this is a card i made a week or so ago. I love the Leanne Ellis stamps as you know and this card has been made using some HOTP papers, they are gorgeous.

Flowers have been punched using my whale of a punch retro punch. With gem centres and McGill punch leaves.

I have used liquid pearls on the border and the sentiment has been printed on the computer.

Then this was a quickie made last week too using another one of my favourite stamps by Rachelle Miller.

Can you tell i love the colour pinK?

So ladies look out for the next letter hidden in Paula's blog somewhere.

Please enjoy your weekend, i am sure you will have some lovely weather, just chill out and enjoy the sunshine. Im certainly going to try my best to do so!

Big hugs for now Linda x

Thank you for the lovely comment on my blog,
I know where aldham is, not far at all,
Its nice to get to know crafters, there isnt many near me,

Nannieflash said...

Hi Linda, Im pleased that your dad is showing improvement, and I so agree about you trying to get him moved nearer you, just wish we'd done it with my inlaws, as the last 2 years have been very difficult. Now my fatherinlaw has gone, its more difficult visiting my motherinlaw, shes in a home in Kent and we live in Gloucester, we could have made his last couple of years so much easier. I love your cards Linda they are gorgeous, the flowers are really stunning. Hope you have a lovely weekend, take care love and hugs Shirleyxxxxx
