Hello there... Did you think I'd fallen off the planet?
I know it's been awhile and I do hope you are all well and safe... Thank you for your comments and for letting me know what you've been doing in isolation.

 I still haven't had the inclination to craft. However I needed a birthday card for my husband's DIL so I had to make something. In the end after much trial and error I went back to my comfort zone - The technique I love and the colours I love

The tulip stamp is by Clearly Besotted and I've used this many times but not over watercolour before.
It's simple and it's me

It's been a weird week here, not just because of our great British summer of constant rain, but I had the need to call an ambulance this week for DH... 

He wasn't feeling to well and collapsed in the bathroom, which he'd locked. I got into him using a screwdriver and managed to call the emergency services. Though they were pretty quick, by time they arrived he was almost fully alert and sitting in a chair but nevertheless, they wanted to check him out at hospital. He wasn't too keen on that but finally agreed to go. Thankfully all the tests were clear and he was released later in the day with a follow-up booked with the GP.

As it happened I also had an appointment with the practice nurse following up on blood tests... My sugar levels were quite high last time and I was expecting the worse despite my efforts in lockdown. Well I was pleasantly surprised when she offered me a gold star HA! Not only have I lost a stone in weight but I have reduce my sugar levels by 5 points, 5 POINTS!! See, there's always a silver lining.

Okay... I'd better say bye bye for now and hopefully I will get to visit you all soon

Take care and be safe
