It's been a while!!

Hiya, what a few weeks here we have had at Chez Christie, started off with what I thought was a touch of lurgy...ended up in the Emergency Docs at 11pm one evening being with a high temperature and a pulse of 143 eeeekkk. The diagnosis - Scarlatina, a form of Scarlet Fever!!! I had no idea people still got that in this day and age. I can tell you, it is the worst thing I have ever experienced. Hubby has been amazing, and has looked after me so well, he has the patience of a saint!! Anyway, after 2 weeks of monster sized anti-biotics, I am slowly getting better and trying to get back to some kind of normality and build myself back up.

So, today I thought I would gently ease myself in with a card I made a few weeks ago before the lurgy struck. I made a pile of cards using the fab new Sentiment Stamps from Sarah Hurley and this one is a Congratulations one, perfect for this time of year with all the exam results coming through. I wanted to keep the card quite Clean & Simple, so embossed some white cardstock, popped a ribbon on it and stamped the sentiment.
