Hello - here I am!

Hello Everyone,
So sorry I have not been a good blogger in the last couple of weeks, but here I am finally. Firstly let me say  a huge Thank You to all of you that sent messages and made phone calls to see how I am going and to wish me well. You all really touched my heart!!!!! My second round of surgery went well - a little more pain than the 1st but I am now well and truly on the way to recovery. Now I just have to wait a couple of months and get over this one before I move onto the next 3. URGH at this stage I don't even want to think about that but I have to. Anyway as for the Sacrel Nerve Stimulator - I am already feeling such positive results - which is great. Sometimes you don't realise how bad things are until you get it fixed and see what you have been putting up with. Anyway as the specialist promised "I am a happy girl".

Now onto the other reason that I have been a bad blogger - cause really it doesn't take much to just sit on your bum and blog. I have started my Uni program!!!!! Yay I have just finished my first week - you can read all about it here if you want  - but take warning - it's a long read!! So that has been keeping me VERY busy - I didn't realise just how busy it would be - but I am enjoying it. It certainly is stretching the old brain. So between getting over my  surgery  and starting uni I am either sleeping or Studying. But not today - today has been play day in Smithville. YAY!!!!!

I have made a card for this weeks challenge over at Penny Black Satruday Challenge.

This week you have to "Case It " Using Domi's card as your inspiration:

And here is my card:

As you can see I have turned the card around one rotation because my image was horizontal instead of vertical. And I have put the circle onto a card instead of making the card a circle. I am happy with the end results - I hope you like it :)

This is the inside view - you know me - I always like to play on the inside as well as the front hehe.

And lastly I thought I would show you some more of the colouring that I did while I was away. It's amazing how much you can get done while sitting in a motel room by yourself. I had a ball just sitting and colouring - it is soooo relaxing.

So now there is no excuse for not card making - I have all these images just waiting to be used. Although I will have to get my time management working a little better than I have managed this week.
Ok hopefully I will be back a little later with another make.
Talk soon
x joy
