Spring is in the Air

Hello All, how are you?....unfortunately I am not so great at the mo, I have got Laryngitis..I have been ill for weeks but it took me ages to get seen by the docs! Any way I am now on anti biotics and am not allowed to speak for a week...that was driving me mad after about 10min, (but I think hubby enjoying the peace) I tell you I really appreciate the gift of speech. My tummy is not liking the antibiotics....but at least I can still use my hands so I can craft away quietly to myself!.....anyway enough of my moaning and onto my card....

I have been so spoiled recently and have had loads of new crafting goodies..hubby treated me to loads of WOJ stamps for my anniversary, so this is me using one of my new stamps..I also got the "DCWV - all about girls" stack, and the fab papers I have used are from that stack.

This is my entry for:

  2. This is stunning Juls. Especially since you have been quite unwell!

    What a lovely hubby to buy you lots of new stash. Mine doesn't buy me stuff but he never objects to me buying that's ok.

    You take care and have a lovely time crafting while you get better. Hope you start to feel better soon.
