NBUS Penny Black

I'm sorry I've not been around visiting the last few days but I haven't really been in the mood for blogging. My hubby wasn't feeling well at the beginning of the week and what we assumed was a bug actually turned out to be acute appendicitis and peritonitis so he ended up being whisked off to hospital for emergency surgery. He's now got post-op complications so his hospital stay is longer than expected. I'm just keeping my fingers, toes, legs and everything crossed that he gets better soon.

After my last post I inked up another NBUS item - a Penny Black stamp called 'snowy perch' - and have made a very uninspiring card with it..... (I am so lost without Hubby here to give his opinion).... but I thought I would drop by so you don't think I'm being rude and ignoring you all.

While I'm here I'll link up to the following challenges

Darnell's NBUS challenge #12

Penny Black's Holiday Head Start challenge

Penny Black and More challenge 'close to nature'

Thanks for your visit today and I'll come and catch up with you when I can.

Hi Andrea,
oh I am sorry to hear about your hubby you must be so stressed.
I'm sure everything will be fine soon, and here's hoping he will be better real soon.
Snap I also posted a card with a Robin today.
Love this one it's brilliantly created and that stamped image is excellent, and a great design.
Lots of crafty love and hugs. Jenny L.

Oh, Andrea, your hubby would have approved of your sweet bird Christmas card if he had been home! Thank you so much for playing again in my challenge!

I'm terribly sorry to hear of his need for emergency surgery and now the complications. Prayers are being said that they get everything under control quickly and he is soon home and soon fully recovered. Please keep me posted on this. I'll be thinking of you, my friend. Sending lots of love and hugs, Darnell
