Pre Blog Cards 2nd Attempt

Hi, hope you are all having a good week.

Below are a selection of some cards I made over the last couple of years, I've tons more photos but just have selected a few to show some different ideas.

This is a card I made for my best friend, which included a very old photo off of us on a night out which she thought was hilarious.

I love monochrome cards, this photo does not do this one justice as I used pearlescent card and printed velum which you can't see in the photo.

I have to admit that this was a very quick card I made for a friends daughter, I thought it was a bit plain but I used her favourite colour and she loved it.

These were made for one of my best friends birthdays last year.
This one was from her daughter using the first Tilda stamp I bought.

This one was from her son, and of course I had to have an Edwin to go with Tilda.

This one was from her husband, I used 40 roses in different sizes with some crystal hearts, all fastened onto a wicker heart which swings on the card, it took ages but she thought it was fantastic so that's what counts.

This one was from me, playing with one of my fave stamps and using crackle glaze for the first time.

I'm hoping to get some more cards made very soon and will post those as and when, but I may well add some more of my fave oldies at a later date.

Bye for now and take care.

Lots of Luv 'n' stuff

Supposed to be some of my Pre Blog Cards

Good evening everyone, hope you are all well.  

In my previous post I mentioned that I'd been diagnosed with Diabetes and that I was going for my medication the next day, well guess what I'm still waiting.  This means I'm still spending most of my time sleeping or drinking gallons of water, and not enough time reading my fave blogs, I apologise to you all for my absence and will be back soon. 

Having Type 2 Diabetes the first treatment they usually try is eating a healthy diet along with sensible amounts of physical activity, but as I've been losing weight with Slimming World (I rejoined in February) and in total have lost just over 3 stone so far, obviously dieting was not the answer for managing my blood glucose levels as I'm still symptomatic (as my doctor put it).  The next course of treatment for Type 2 would normally be medication in tablet form (Metformin) unfortunately this affects the glucose production in your liver and I have the added complication of suffering from an auto immune disease of the liver called Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC - very rare which I think just makes me more special, lol), so now I've been referred to a Diabetologist (I know an 'ologist') at the hospital, which in fairness is fine, it's better to see a specialist and get the correct treatment, it's just I'm fed up of waiting now I just want something that will make me feel more like my normal self.  The Diabetic Nurse at my doctor's surgery seems to think that I'll be put on insulin so that'll be interesting!!  I'll let you know the outcome once I've seen the 'ologist'.

Anyway, as I've not made hardly any cards due to being asleep most of the time, I've decided to post some old ones just to show what I've done in the past before I started my blog.

Well, I just tried to upload some photos and my internet connection has gone on a major go slow so I will try again tomorrow.

Night night and take care,

Luv Hev xxx

It's been so long!!!

First things first, sorry for not being on here for so long, not been too good health wise which has made me extremely tired so PC use has been severely limited (been sleeping instead, lol)

Anyway, I go for my medication tomorrow so hopefully will start to feel more like my normal self again and will have the chance to post more regularly.

I have managed to make a few cards while I've been away from Blogland so I'll let you have a quick lookysee but there won't be any detail added as I made them so long ago I can't remember the nitty gritty now, but I'm sure you'll all get the idea.


Hope you like what you've seen.

I am going to post some quite old photos soon of cards I made before I started my blog.  Again with those there won't be any detail but just want to show what I've done in the past.

See you soon

Take Care
