Milestone Birthdays

Hi Everyone,
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend, it has been beautiful weather here.

I'm so sorry I haven't been around in a while but I have been poorly for a few weeks and last week visited the sit and wait clinic at my surgery because I had been having the most horrendous tummy pain, next thing I knew I was being rushed to hospital as I had a temp of 38.9 and my bp had dropped through the floor. They thought it was appendicitis but after scans they ruled that out and discovered I have a large cyst on my ovary instead so I am now waiting for an MRI to rule out anything more sinister....touch wood.
I have been on IV antibiotics in the hospital as I had developed quite a bad infection (my fault I have a tendency to brush things off and think they will get better on their own Oops) but now my temperature is back to normal I begged them to let me go home with antibiotics instead....I'm a terrible patient lol but I feel so much less stressed in my own environment plus I was going stir crazy as I didn't have any way of reading my blogs or doing any sort of crafting :(

I have a couple of cards to share today that I had made a couple of weeks ago using the Milestone Birthdays set from DigiStamp Boutique. This is such a useful set.

I just matted this one onto black card as you can see, the paper is from a Trimcraft pack I think but I have lost the cover page. I love it though pretty. Kept it very simple again as it is for the 'flat' box.

This one is even simpler still with no ribbon or embellishments, the paper is embossed and glittery but you can't really see in the photo. All matted onto silver mirri.

Thats all for now, I will be steadily catching up on all of your lovely blogs over the next day or so I'm sure I have missed some wonderful creations while I have been awol,

Hugs, Kaz xxx

Oh goodness Karen, how frightening for you. Please make sure that you get plenty of rest and don't over do it. I'm sending lots of vibes that all your results come back clear. These cards are fabulous, I love how the sentiment is the focal point. Take care of yourself x

Hi Karen,
oh I am sorry to hear you have not been well.
I do hope all gets sorted soon and you have some good results from your scan.
I too have been missing for a couple of weeks as I had no Interent.
Love your wonderful cards and those milestone digi images are excellent.
I won £10 for a second time with them recently so I will be looking at these.
Hope you are feeling much better soon.
Love and get well hugs. Jenny L.

Sorry to hear that you've been so unwell, Karen. Sounds like you've had a really rough time. Hope you'll soon be fully recovered and your MRI scan results come back clear. Great cards, the sentiments make lovely focal point. xx
