Evening all!

Hope you all had a fab day!. It has been soooo cold at work today, so cold I thought my fingers were going to drop off lol. They are changing the boilers at the hospital at the mo, thinking the August weather was going to keep us all warm ( That's a mega joke, do they realise this is the UK, NOT THE MED lol), so you can imagine the operating theatres are like a fridges at the mo, but the patients are all toastie under warming blankets and the poor staff have to wrap themselves up with theatre gowns :o(
Hopefully they are going to fix all the problems by the end of the month, so by the time I go back to work it will be all lovely and warm for the autumn, but at least all the patients are lovely and warm now :o)

That's enough about the good old NHS, tonight's card is going into the fab challenge over at Friday Sketchers and I have used a gorgeous image from the very talented Heather Ellis.Heather is fabulous illustrator and she is also having a fab sale at the mo with some of her gorgeous Pure Innocence range, so go and check it out and grab a bargain or two!!
