I'm Still Here .....

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe I have been away so long :( or that I still have some followers left, thank you so much for sticking with me I'm hoping to be posting regularly from here on !

A lot has happened since I last blogged, got a shock diagnosis of borderline diabetes when I developed a very painful problem with both legs where they swelled dramatically and broke out into blister type sores which resulted in my having to have my legs dressed  twice a week for six weeks.
I have been very down and unable to craft at all due to not being able to sit with my legs down for any period of time, anyway after a stern talking to by my doctor I gave myself a massive kick up the backside and decided things had to change and started eating healthily etc and 4 weeks in I have lost 1 stone 4 lbs which I'm thrilled with (I have many more to go but this time I am feeling really determined that I will get there) and am starting to be able to do some exercise now my legs are almost healed.

I was thinking to help keep me motivated I might do a separate page to keep updated with my journey so that my lovely blog friends can choose to read it or not as I don't want to put anyone off looking at my blog because of waffle about things other than my cardmaking...what do you think ?

Anyway after said waffle Lol I do have a card to show you that I made before I became poorly for my friends wedding (the same friend I did the invitations for)

It was an 8 x 8 card and I used my Joanna Sheen bride and groom dies which I gave a coating of Wink of Stella, I scored the lines on the background with my hougie board and just added the joycraft heart stem and paper roses bought from Ebay. 
This was the first time I had ever made a predominantly white on white card and I really love how it turned out, I will definitely be trying it again.

Off now to catch up on some of your wonderful blogs, I'm so glad to be back I have missed everyone !
Thanks for reading,

Kaz x

Sorry to hear that you have been struggling recently. Congratulations on the weight loss, I think I need your motivation to rub off on me! Wonderful white on white card, I always think they look stunning for weddings. Looking forward to seeing you post again. Hugs, Cara x

Hi Kaz (just commented on your most recent post and called you by your Sunday name LOL!!)

Lovely to see you back again in blogland . .. . I am so sorry you have been so unwell. I was thinking you had perhaps had a break to enjoy the summer.

Well done on your weight loss. Sounds like you are doing really well.

Loving the wedding card you did for your friends. That will be a really special keepsake for them.

Love Jules xx
