More than 1 fold

Hi all,

It's the 1st of the month so it's time for a new challenge over at Sparkles Forum Christmas.

The theme for this month chosen by Jane is:
'More than 1 fold.'
I decided to make a  gift box and a rosette. Hope you like it. I was quite chuffed that I could actually make the lid and the base by following a clip on You Tube. I'll certainly make some more in different sizes as I'm not very good at wrapping pressies especially at Christmas time.

 
                          

           Why not pop over to see what all the fabulous makes the teamies 
                have made to inspire you this month and join in with us.
                                                     
                   Thanks for popping by to see me. I'd like to give a warm                                  welcome to 2 new design team members: 
                                                          Lynne and Cheryl.  
Great to have you on the team.

Challenges:
             Hope you're all fine. Thank you for popping by to visit me.

Thanks for popping by to see me.

I am flying by the seat of my pants with this card as my I've had a busy week of visiting my Dad who has a blood clot. They found him a bed in Hospital on Wednesday night and he's been scanned and waiting to get his operation to remove it as it's travelled up his leg towards the groin area. By the time this goes live he should be recovering from his op. Bless him. 

I'm still struggling with blogging so please bear with me. Once a month isn't good enough but my hands have been misbehaving so roll on my hospital appointment in a few weeks.

Daisy daisy....

Hi all,
How are you all today? Hope it's been a good day so far for you all. Apologies once again for my lack of blogging. I've been having a few problems with my right arm which has fired up again so it prevents me from doing alot. It's just my fibramyalgia & M.E misbehaving again. 

Here's a Sympathy card I made a few weeks ago with my favourite Sheena Douglass Daisy stamp, the sentiment is a Clearly Bssotted one.
Challenges

I got my CT scan results a couple of weeks ago for my bowel cancer and I'm still in the clear whoopee!!!! Thank you for all your support and for popping by while I've been AWOL.

I haven't been able to blog for a month, apologies.I can't seem to get to grips with blogging lately. Our cross-staffie Hunter has been poorly the last few weeks and very clingy so I haven't managed to craft much. He had a haematoma(a burst blood vessel) on his ear. It kept filling up and needed draining. Fingers crossed the steroids work this time.
Bless him. Take care.
