Here we are, Tuesday again ....

and it's SIX whole weeks today since I became the ceramic woman with my hip replacement. Apparently, I am now able to turn in bed which means I can go back to sleeping on my side - hurrah! and those gorgeous passion killing compression stockings can come off for a couple of hours during the day - let joy (and toes) be unconfined!

I fell over this stamp in my collection once more and remembered how simply fab it is - doesn't it lend itself well to Clean And Simple? AND it's not a LARGE postage stamp to mail it either! Here's another BLING entry for the Simply Less Is More challenge this week - my third doncha know!
  


 Materials used:
  • 5" scalloped square, 300 gsm white card and matching insert and envelope
  • Inkadinkado sentiment and Penny Black wreath inked in Memento paris dusk ink
  • Crystal stickles - to bling it to within an inch of its life!!!
 And here's a close up of the stickle bling!


Like it? Here's the envelope and insert - check them out too .....


And they make such great batch cards that I "ran up a couple more" in similar style ....


Have a good Tuesday folks.

Oooooo these are real nice Kathy.... have the snowflake and pine cone thingy stamp - might have to have a go at just stamping them on their own straight onto the card - they look fab!

Aren't you the lucky one being able to sleep on your side again! I've had two hip replacements but I've never been able to lay on my sides since.
