Thank you for all your lovely comments regarding my appointment last week - the result was as l expected - l am at High risk of breast cancer so will be put back on the annual mamogram checks and on Tamoxafen as a precautionary measure - so thats that will just put it in a box and get on with a hopefully healthy future.

  1. Great card Susan, and I love it in the grey and black shades you have chosen. We have lost more panels from the tractor shed today...we are still waiting for the roofers to come and repair the hay barn roof that was damaged just before christmas. They haven't been because of the bad weather!! xx

  2. This is a fabulous card Susan, I love your PB image - one of my favourites, your papers are perfect for a male card.
    I'm sorry to hear that you are at high risk of breast cancer, it must be a worry, but you sound like you have a good attitude towards it.
    Take care.

  3. A gorgeous card Susan. I love those cute little hedgies and fab design.
    Sorry to hear about your risk of breast cancer. I love your positive attitude.

  15. Terrific design, Susan. Love those sweet hedgies, that's a great stamp. The paper looks fab and I love how you have turned the stripes to give a different look.

  16. Hi Susan,
    Love your positive attitude to your health issue and I'm glad they'll be keeping a close eye on you.

    A perfect male card today; the stamp and papers look perfect together.

  17. Hi & TFS for the update on your tests. I have 2 cousins who do the Tamaoxfen for long years now. It's best to know the risks, and take all preventive measures possible, and keep close watch. Loved this card. I have that stamp, used once for a friend who is a puzzle guru. Love how you used it with these neutral stripes and your faux stitching. So nifty. TFS & Hugs

  18. As you can see I am all behind this week Susan, this is so effective in the black and white.
