Im a big fan of BG - that is a fact.
Its not for everyone but for me it is just so easy for me to use.
Then comes along The English Paper Company.Again, its not for everyone but I have leafed through some samples sent to me completely ages ago and I came across these lil babies which are just perfect and I mean PERFECT for crimbo cards this year. Couple that with my gorgous lil snowman stamp (which I watercoloured) and I have myself some super cute cards for my freinds.
So I made two.
Because, I have two freinds!!!
And from 3 sheets of paper I have the potential to make another 12 cards with plenty left over for punches and die cuts. Im going to have a stab at more papers tomorrow for more cards. This is before we go for Belles Gait Analysis results. So excited/scared/anxious about the results already. We have recently had the results of her Genetics testing for Myotonic Dystrophy. Am pleased to announce she does not have it however, they have found something but it requires both Mark and I to give some of the O and A pos respectively.
And Mark faints at the sight of his own blood.
And Belle is so excited at the prospect.
This is a guy who fought in the first gulf war, has been to northern Ireland on gruelling patrols and has served on the rocky Cypriot border where by two of his colleagues were shot and injured not so long ago.
Belle has been onward referred from Genetics to Endocrinology, Ophthalmology and something that escapes me but it now means she is under 4 top quacks at Alderhey. Genetics also want to scan her Kidneys (new one on us!). I have to give a massive thank you to Genetics - Carrie (the Doctor who lets me call her by her first name - cool) is so empathic to how we are all feeling about this incredibly frustrating journey. At least she under the best children's hospital in the North and we are hoping so hard that something will come of all this to-ing and fro-ing and missing school.
After that I'm off for a facial (much needed I may add, skin is looking GREY). I'm going to start a course of treatment that I can barely contain myself in sharing. If you have a beauticians that offer a service called Crystal Clear, I seriously recommend you check it out. The blow a billion crystal particles into your skin and then using a seriously suckable sucking thingy, it removes those particles and also lifts your face at the same time. The white crystals come out grey thus leaving your skin as peachy as the proverbial babies botty. I promise you that you will feel a million dollars and your skin as dewy as youth used to reflect. Sigh.
And then my night gets better as I hop off to the Trafford centre to swap my Cricut for a Robo with Suzy Bonkers. We are off to eat lard, drink cellulite tripling lattes and window shop in Selfridges.
Squeal! I can't wait for tomorrow (infact, its today!)
