Party time

I hope you are all having a lovely Easter weekend. Mine hasn't quite gone as planned. Those who follow me on Facebook will know that I had a bad fall last Thursday. I caught my foot in the hoover cable which hubby was using and fell into the lounge hitting my back on our heavy oak coffee table. Thankfully nothing was broken but I have a nasty bruise, internal bruising and a very painful back. I have two lots of tablets, arnica cream and heat patches and it is slowly improving. Today we should have been going to see Lynsey and her family and go out for lunch but my back couldn't take the long bumpy journey so we will be going somewhere more local for a little trip as I haven't been out for the last two days.

Today I have a card as a guest designer again for My Mum’s Craft Shop
Image - Hobby House precoloured topper by Elisabth Bell
Papers - MFT dots and stripes confetti
Die - MFT sentiment label strip

All of these are available at My Mum’s Craft Shop.

I also used some new Nellie Snellen flower dies I bought at Ally Pally, pearls and pearl pen,  ribbon from Meiflower and a sentiment I found in my stash which fitted the image perfectly.

Hi Marianne, it does seem like an awful painful fall, lucky nothing was broken, although sometimes it takes longer to heal, hope the pain lessens soon.
