Sorry I've been absent

Hello Everybody,

First I must apologise for suddenly being absent for so long.

So much has been going on since before Christmas and the busy life continues.  I've not had a lot of time on my laptop and even emails have really started stacking up ....

Both hubby and I are having health issues.  Please don't worry, it just means lots of time taken up with tests and appointments.  We're both fine.

I have managed a few workshops which have been fun then I somehow deleted all the card photos from my camera.  Hubby managed to retrieve them but it was EVERYTHING I've snapped from the year dot so it's going to take days to sort out.

Anyway with some lovely weather predicted ahead and the World Cup just around the corner (you may know I'm a huge footie fan) I think it best if I continue my break for a couple more months  to take the pressure off a bit while I get everything sorted out.   I have been popping in to see what you've been doing and will try to leave more comments during my absence.

This is a card I made at Loobi Crafts dabble day last Sunday with a Paper Artsy set of stamps and Infusion powders using some interesting techniques,

Wishing you all lots of Happy Crafting.   Barb xx

Lovely to see you Barb, life does have a habit of getting in the way sometimes, but you are back with a real beauty.

Like you I'm a big fottie fan and looking forward to the World Cup, but first a trip to Kiev for our boys in red.

I've missed seeing your posts and I hope the health issues are soon sorted with nothing serious amiss. Enjoy the football and hopefully we will see you back after your break from blogging.

I completely understand your situation - my hubs and I are in the same boat. It seems one of us is either visiting a doctor or having a diagnostic test done, and there seems to be no end to any of it. It's nice to see you crafting a great card again, and I wish you and your hubby well as you process all the issues at hand! Take care!

We're all missing you - hope you both get the health issues sorted out soon. Enjoy the football - it's not my cup of tea although I promise to watch if England get to the final.
