I promise that I will do my best!

Morning, and what a lovely morning it is.  We have clear blue skies and the sun is shining.  It's still a tad cold but it's dry and sunny, which is great for this time of year.  We have been so lucky when you look at other areas of the country.

Today I am sharing a card that I made for the local Guides group.  I distantly remember being a Girl Guide, and competing for an arm full of badges.
I decided to keep the card simple by framing the Guiding symbol with my Spellbinder dies and adding a wee bit of bling and ribbon.

Congratulations to Jenna on gaining your award.  Well done.  I hope you like your card from all the Guides.

Back to today and I had the joy of taking my youngest for tests this morning as he hasn't been great for a wee while now.  He has never liked needles but was very brave.  Apparently it hurt a lot more than I said it would.  What a bad mummy!  
I didn't like packing him back off to school when he was feeling sore, bless.
I had planned to pop into town and order my new worktops and sink for the kitchen today but I've promised him a home lunch instead.....that will keep for another day.

Back to housework and jobs for me then today and maybe a little baking later, although it really isn't great for the waist line....I can feel my clothes tighten as we speak....might have to get back on track with my healthy eating instead, boo hiss.

Last night after settling in front of the fire for the evening I picked up my crochet hook and decided to have a wee play with some different patterns.
Dare I admit I ended up one frustrated hooker!  First I was gaining stitches then I was loosing them....bring back dishcloths!
I ended up pulling everything out and putting it down, bar humbug.
I will not be beaten but best to try again another day.

It only remains for me to wish you all the best this Tuesday.....happy crafting!

Great card for the girl and well done to her. Oh you bad mummy - not it has to be done and they will hopefully find out what's wrong and make him better. I know it's hard, and as you say having him home for his lunch is more important than those new work tops. Hazel xx

Hello Erika, oh your poor wee man, I hate needles too and always look away, which is nuts as I inject four times daily with insulin. I hope the doctors can find out what's making him feel poorly. He deserved a lunch at home.
Great card, and well done to the girl for attaining her badge. Hugs Kate x

Good morning Erika,
Great card and well done to the recipient.
Hope your son gets quick results and they get him sorted out. Nothing worse that not feeling in "tip top" condition. I think the long dark winters do not help.
Ooooppps!!!! hope the "hook" works better when you pick it up again.
Have a great day

Patricia xx
