Allsorts Challenge 333

Hello my lovely crafty friends, hope you are all keeping well.  It is that time of the week - The new Allsorts challenge and this week it is the lovely Helene hosting the challenge and she has chosen
Sentiment as Focal Point
Not my strongest point but l had a go and this is what l came up with, my teamies have some lovely inspiration to share with you over on the challenge blog here. along with all the details. This week we have a new teamie - Kevin, he always amazes me with his gorgeous creations and we are so happy to have him join us.

Sentiment stamp - Penny Black every day 3170F
Dies - spellbinder circle, Joy shape
Raffia and gems

We have been generously sponsored by 

I will be glad when this week is over - thursday last week l drove up to Inverness with my daughter for her second interview for a head teachers job, l drove back home on friday - Helen got the job and we are over the moon and so proud of her . 
Since having my gall bladder removed four weeks ago l have had horrendous heartburn and managed to find time to go to docs this monday - along with my swollen and painful leg. The GP sent me straight to hospital with suspected DVT - blood tests were positive (could have fragments in my blood from op) and scan negative so l have to go back next monday for a repeat of scan, the long drive could have caused my right leg to swell 3cm bigger than left leg. GP also confirmed l have diabetes. On tuesday l had to go in for a general anaesthetic to have my 'lady bits' looked at but they sent me home because of 'possible' DVT, today l have been for my annual mammogram.  
I am crossing everything that all is well as l travel to New Zealand in four weeks and really don't need all this. Sorry for moan xx  

Hope to see you all joining in this week x Susan x
