An oldie but a goody!

Hi friends,
Sorry not been around much due to getting a couple of appointments this last week.
Firstly, I had an 'Ultrasound Guided aspiration' biopsy on an enlarged lymph node in my neck on Tuesday.
It was like having liposuction in miniature!!! Arghhh!
I get the results next  Friday. All being well, it will say the Lymphoma hasn't travelled upwards.
My neck is still sore! Boo!
THEN! I had a tooth out on on Thursday. I felt every single part of it!
The infection was so deep in my tooth, the anaesthetic didn't reach it! ARGHHH again!!
BUT!! No more tooth pain that has been driving me NUTS for 2 months.
Hence my absence. Am I forgiven?

Hope so my lovelies.
Here's a card to make you smile anyway.
I've had this Sugar Nellie rubber stamp for YEARS!
(Even the Stampin' Up DP is old)!
 'Snowman with gift'  I LOVE this stamp!
He's sold out at Funky Kits I'm afraid. I hope he goes digital along with his other snowmen friends.
I coloured him with Copics and framed him with two of the Tonic studio oval layering dies.

I will be entering him into these Challenges.
(Hope it counts 'coz it's a SN stamp not image).

I've got another couple of cards in the pipeline, so please call back soon.

Your snowman is absolutely STUNNING!! Know that I am thinking of you and praying for you! Love you my sweet Viv! Miss you tons!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, he's fabulously adorable and your coloring is amazing! It matters not that it's an old image. It is timeless and I love seeing your work. I do so love a beautifully colored image. It sounds like you've not been having such a fun time. I had a couple of procedures recently, too, but nothing quite so painful. I hope you're done with that for a while! said...

Forgiven? !!! What for? We know what you've been through of late xxx
You've triumphed using your great flare in this creation Viv. It's a cracker :)
Thanks for putting us on to Funky Kits and Sugar Bowl challenge ;) I'm following them now ;)
