Not much playing happening

Hello and a huge happy Sunday to you all
I am very sorry that I have not been around for a few days. Despite the fact I am on term break from Uni - I have been kept out of mischief and busy. I had planned on spending most of last week playing happily amongst my treasured crafty stuff - but the Universe had other ideas and kept me doing other things - I felt like the last week just disappeared into nowhere.

Tuesday I spent the day with my lovely papercrafting buddies having a fun day relaxing and crafting  before I go away this next week - I had such a lovely day!!!!! Then Wednesday I had a lovely little 4 year old's birthday party to attend - which I also thoroughly enjoyed. Happy Birthday Jada!!!!!! Her clever Mum decorated all the party goodies with strawberries - I was very impressed - sooooo cute!!! And just as I have written that I remembered that I forgot to take a photo of Jada's card that I made - silly me!!!!!!

Then Friday I had to drive over to Barcaldine (100kms away) and back, because our local chemist didn't have my medication in stock and I needed it, so off I went. Travelling in the car and I aren't all that happy with each other at the moment - so I ended up in a bit of pain after that - it has taken me a couple of days to get over it.

So today I have a couple of things to share with you, firstly a couple of cards that I have made. The first is a blue version of the bubbles card I made (from my last post)

 Once again I masked out the dandy lions from the stamped image and changed them to bubbles. Added a strip cut out using my new tonic punches and a layered bow.
 The inside view.
 This is another of the Thank you cards that I made last week using Kaiser craft stamps called hummingbird and some beautiful paper also from Kaiser - finished off with a stamping up sentiment and some pearl bling. I have layered the smaller bird house as well but I don't think you can see that very well in this photo.
 The inside view.
 Another Thank you card using Stampin' up stamp, top note die, sentiment and punch finished with some Kaiser paper and some grossgrain ribbon. 
 And once again the inside view - I love this Kaiser paper it is the back of the Bonjour collection  Moriesse - sooooo pretty!!!!!!
 And finally something other than cards for a change - I sat and enjoyed some time in the sunshine yesterday with my puppy Sebastian - how cute is he!!!!!
 And madame Sabrina just couldn't bear me sitting giving all of my attention to Sebastian so she came and joined us as well
 And then just some shots of the garden again - it was such a beautiful day yesterday
   This is our little log cabin and rockery - still needs more work but it's getting there.

Ok well I am not sure that I am going to get time to blog again before I head off for my round three of surgery this week. I would like to say that I am going to spend the next two days in the craft room but I don't think that is gunna happen. I am going to take the computer with me so maybe I can hop on and say hi in the lead up to Friday. I have to undertake a pretty yukky preparation and no eating on Thurs so I am not looking forward to any of it. Hubby is flying down to be with me this time as it is a little more serious - he gets to Brissy on Friday, so by the time he gets there I should be out of surgery. Ohhhhh the joys of it all - but by this time next year I should be running around full of life again - I hope!!!!!!!!

Ok well have a great day
talk soon
 x joy

Hi Joy, You sound to have been really busy and managed to make some super cards. Love the bubbles on your first card and that bow is ace. Your thank you card is lovely too and the papers go perfectly with the image.
Hope your medication helps to ease your discomfort hun.
Hugs Sue W.
