I'M STILL HERE :-(..........................................

Morning all!

Well it's bad news :o(.................. I rang work yesterday and mentioned my back was still playing up a tad and I had tingly pains in my left hip and leg and I cannot go back until I see my GP. They don't want to risk me coming back until I get the all clear and I couldn't get an appointment till tomorrow, doesn't it just irritate you when you have to wait 3 days for an appointment grrrrrrrrr....................... but at least my boss is  looking after me :o)

So I have more play time and I made this wee card from Crafty Sentiments Designs which I am show casing at the mo. This is Mushroom Bear, and isn't he the cutest!!. They have got some lovely valentine sentiments out too at the mo, so if you have time pop over and have a looksy!

This sweetie is going into the following challenges :-
CES # 19 ~ No designer papers
2 Sisters # 22 ~ Flowers

Mushroom Bear ~ Crafty Sentiments
