a little hedgie and a bit of news

Hello there.....thank you so much for visiting me today! Hope you've been having a lovely weekend. Enjoying a fairly quite weekend, just a bit of food shopping and putting the mower around the garden yesterday, tidied my craft desk a little....then decided to make a card and promptly untidied it, hehehe
This gorgeous PB Hedgie is, without a doubt, one of my fave stamps, and one that I always have a supply of all ready to colour.
Image coloured with promarkers
Papers: from a stack from The Works
Dies: Memory Box Fremont Crest and Joycraft flowers
Sentiment: fabby freebie from the even fabber Netty, that you can find here
General Stash: buttons.

I would like to enter this into these challenges:

Will be back tomorrow with a new Cutie Pie challenge, but for the couple of weeks things may be a little quiet from my end. On Monday week (14th) my hubby is going into hospital for major surgery, I think I shared this on here a while ago, anyway he has an Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm. We were hoping that it could be repaired with keyhole surgery, but that wasn't deemed possible, so they're going in! We are expecting him to be in hospital for approx. 7-10 days, with the first 24-48hrs after the op, in ICU. As you can imagine, he has been extremely fearful about the whole thing, I have tried to remain more positive and supportive to do, but I guess that's easier to do when you're not the one going through it. A lot of his fears come from the fact that his father died from an AAA, with additional complications, but that was in an emergency situation and not a planned op. Anyway, I will update as and when I can xx


  1. Gorgeous card Lisa and wishing all the best for your hubby's op sending you hugs

  2. Your card is gorgeous Lisa. I love the sweet image and beautiful detailing.
    I am sorry to hear about your hubby needing such major surgery. I will be thinking of you both on the 14th and wish him a speedy recovery. I can totally understand his worries, it's good that you are remaining so positive and supportive, it must be a great comfort to him at such a stressful time.
    Take care, sending you hugs
    Sue xx
