Good Afternoon Blogging Friends,

Another gorgeous day here and believe it or not I've not set a foot out the door.  I'm in one of those moods when I don't know what to do, so I'm doing all sorts of things at the same time.  I had it in my mind I would go into town, but at some point this morning discarded that idea, and I think that's what's put my brain into confusion.  Anyway must go out even if it's just to the postbox a few yards away.

Thank you all for the lovely comments on my last post and pleased you liked the photos.

At long last I've received my physio appointment for the tennis elbow, but still waiting for the occupational health appointment.  I am still signed off work in the hope that I would have the appointment quite soon, if I had to go back to work just now I would be back right into the situation which caused the stress in the first place.  I don't think my work will make any changes to unless they have medical backup, and even then I have my doubts.  So like Duchess Kate, I'm also a "lady in waiting", though not for such a joyous event.

My card today,
I've used one of LOTV latest images, Sunflowers
Prismacolour pencils
SB Floral Ovals & Petit Lables
Kirsty Wiseman Sentiment
Core'Dinations Card
Xcut Border Punch
Kanban Vintage Tapestry Paper
Ribbon Girl Seam Binding
Gems from my box
Gold Stickles
Glossy Accents

This was a lovely image to colour, and I'm rather pleased with how it's turned out. What do you all think?

That's me for new, must go and forage for some lunch, having to do it myself, Alistair out playing today canyoning with some pals.  He really is having a ball this year with all this wonderful weather, not always the case for an outdoors sort of guy. Which reminds me, did anyone whatch the end of the Tour De France, last night? wasn't it an exciting finish?  and the light show on the Arch de Triumph was fantastic, spellbinding, really.  I really enjoyed it all.

Thanks for your visit
Hugs Kate x
