I'm still here :)

Hi everyone, sorry for my absence lately but it's been a bit of a traumatic couple of weeks.  I had a bad fall on the 11th February while out walking the dog.  I have broken my cheek bone in four places!  I have got to say it is so painful. I have had two trips to Bradford Royal Infirmary to the Maxillofacial ward for check ups and am still waiting for a decision as to whether or not they need to put plates in my face to help support and mend the broken bones.  Although there are four breaks none of the bones have moved too far so tomorrow they will make a decision when I go back for another check up.  At least I now have some decent pain killers that keep the pain under control and a lot of the swelling has disappeared, I just have a face that is the colour of the rainbow from all the bruising :)

Onto the card that I have to show you today...I made this card using a stamp set from Lawn Fawn called Bugs and Kisses. As usual I  stamped the image onto some Person Impressions Smooth White card and coloured with Copics.  The jar is empty and you can stamp a number of other 'bugs' from the set so they look as though they are in the jar.  I used a flower embossing folder to create a background and several strips of patterned paper from Doodlebug which I cut with a banner die from 'Little B'  The sentiment is a Paper Smooches stamp, I use it quite a lot as I love the font and size.

My other love at the moment is my journal and note books, along with pens and anything stationery related :)  I have just got a Passport size Midori Travelers note book cover which is just the softest leather and holds several note books, I use one for just jotting down random things that I need to do or remember.  I have one that I write any Crafting notes, wish lists etc and I use the plain paper one for a sort of art journal to document things in picture form.  There is also a plastic wallet insert that I keep a few stickers and a tiny Moleskine note book that has everyone's birthdays in.  The little pencil case I got at Paperchase yesterday.  I use it to keep my fountain pens in, it's just the right size to hold my four pens :)

I also got myself some sticky notes from Paperchase which I thought were cute and would come in handy to keep on my desk.  The little notebooks in the photo are the Moleskine tiny note books.  I have decorated one with some House Mouse stickers that I have had forever and use that one as my birthday book.  Not quite sure what to use the other for yet :)

Well that's about all I have time for today.  Hopefully I will be back with more news and a card to show you soon :)

Thanks for dropping by...
