Giving Thanks


Some of you will know that I've not been feeling so well the last couple of months. Well a week in hospital has revealed the reason, I have clots in both my lungs. I've been out of hospital a little more than a week now and although it will be a while before I am completely well I feel that I have lots of reasons to be thankful. Firstly I'm thankful to God for my life, I never dreamed I was walking around with something so life threatening. Secondly I'm grateful to my doctor for correctly diagnosing my symptoms and sending me to A&E. I'm thankful for all the doctors and nurses who looked after me in hospital and last but not least for all my friends and family who were so caring and supportive while I was in hospital and since I've been out.

The sentiment on my card is from Verve Stamps and the flowers were made with my new toy, the Spellbinders Spiral Blossom 1. I think I need a bit of practice to perfect making flowers with it but am still very pleased with my card.

I'm off work for a couple of weeks so hopefully I'll find the time in between all the hospital appointments to catch up with all your crafting and do a bit more myself. Thanks for visiting and have a good weekend.
