Pop Up Flowers!

Hello my lovely Crafty Friends, Visitors too and welcome to my wee bit in Blogland.
I hope you are all tip top, but if not sending out kind thoughts for a speedy recovery.
Thank you so much for all the lovely comments on my CCC card, I do appreciate each and every one of them.

Heavy rain at times today, and quite windy too, put some towels out and there are too wet to come in, hoping for a drier day tomorrow.

I'm off for my Diabetic Review tomorrow, it's not going to be as good as it could be, lots of up and down BG results, after my bout of illness during my holiday, I've found it difficult to gain the control I need.  It's such a pain in the neck having this condition, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.  I was doing so well a while back, but I've slipped back and I don't always feel well.  Anyway, we'll see what the nurse says tomorrow.

Here is my offering for today;

Sorry about the amount of photos, but it's really difficult to get it all in
The papers a from a cheap but lovely floral pad from the works, SB Roses and Astors, Sizzix Words dies, Crafty Individuals Butterfly, Xcut Butterfly die, Little Claire Hugs and Kisses sentiment,and some Pearls.

This little pop up ended up going with me when I visited one of my elderly clients who is in hospital, as they don't allow flowers in the wards, I thought this would be nice on her locker, and it wouldn't die.  She loved it I am pleased to say.

That's me for tonight, feet up now and watch a wee bit of TV.

Hi Kate, I hope your check up goes well. Take it easy and enjoy your evening.
A super exploding card, yep they're difficult to photograph. Loving all your flowers popping out the top and the butterfly.

Take care, hugs Erika. x
