all about numbers


for todays creation~ a calendar easel card, i have used the sketch over on ~

SWEET SKETCH WEDNESDAY 2~ 73

PAPERTAKE WEEKLY ~ ANYTHING GOES (CHRISTMAS GIFT)



used lots of nestabilities and sizzix dies, papermania brads, card candy and lots from my crafty stash!.. and a shop bought calendar and post it note pad


..... and what a difference a few weeks make  .. my brother has had to have surgery twice around his heart , for a blockage which seems to have cause swelling to his face and arm/hand ..and meant he couldn`t have dialysis for a few days too..so as you can guess he has been very poorly ..but this weekend i have this amazing photo to share ..him sat up (yep not lying down) and he had used a pencil and written something , that i feel is very clear ..using his left hand .. as he cannot use his right after the accident    


xx this weekend i feel truly blessed xx
