Snippets, Stars and a CASE

Hi everyone, sorry I've not been around Blogland but my aches and pains have got a lot worse so I ended up paying a visit to the doctor who is sending me for an MRI scan. Just have to wait for an appointment from the hospital so not sure how long that will take!

I do have a couple of cards to show you - the first I made a couple of weeks ago for the Happy Little Stampers CASE the Designer challenge. I used the HLS Mix Mash stamp set with some flowers and gems from my stash.

and this is the card I CASEd

My second card is a very quick CAS card I made yesterday with a few bits I had lying around - snippets of paper, a few die cut stars, a bit of ribbon and peel off sentiment. The result.... well Hubby called it 'fun' but I think he was being polite !

This one's for Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets' Allsorts Challenge 'fancy bows and ribbon' and The Craft Barn challenge 'stars'

I won't be around too much to visit as my hands aren't letting my type much but I really appreciate your visit here today.

Oh dear Andrea, sorry to hear that, likewise here but that's just an MX relapse. Hope they don't keep you waiting too long.

Love the spotty creation and great snippets card for Allsorts, many thanks for joining in.

How lovely to see you in the Playground Andrea, with this great card! So sorry to hear you've now been referred to hospital - my guess is that your GP will have already done blood screening for RA and such. Here's hoping they get it sorted out for you toot sweet!

Hope you are soon feeling stronger...I know what it is like to try to craft with aches and pains. Totally understand...but will be glad to hear they can this sorted out to get you some pain relief.

Your cards are that first one...and best of all I love that you were able to use up some blossoms. I have zillions to use up and am always on the lookout for ideas for them!

Great cards!

Hi Andrea,
great cards and wonderful designs.
Sorry to hear about your health probs.
I do hope all goes well with your scan when it happens.
I know when I slipped a disc in the top of my spine I waited a couple of weeks for it.
I suppose it depends on where abouts you live.
Sending big hugs to try and help.
Have you thought any more about an electronic die cutting machine ?
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Two super cards Andrea, you have chosen lovely bright colours for your CASEd card and the second one is such a fun design.
Sorry to hear that your aches and pains have worsened, I hope your appointment comes through soon.

So sorry to hear your your aches and pains. I can relate. I do hope they find that there is something they can fix for you and rather soon. I really like those circle cards. I think I'm going to be CASing your cards. I think your hubyy was being truthful not just polite. I think that card is fun also and just darling. I will be keeping you in my thoughts. Enjoy your evening.

Very best wishes for all your aches and pains, hope it is sorted pdq.
Three lovely creations and 'fun cards' Lovely colours and nice way of using up bits and pieces.
