It has been over a month since my last post, but much has happened in that time!! Some of you may know that I have had some health issues and have been unwell, and that earlier this year I was diagnosed with "medullary thyroid cancer". On 16 May I went into hospital to have a thyroidectomy and neck dissection. It was pretty scary, but all went well and I am now out of hospital and recovering well. Here is a picture of the damage two weeks after surgery, it zig zags down the side of my neck and then runs right across the front to my collar bone on the other side. It is healing really well.

There are so many people I want to thank, for their help and thoughts and prayers and cards and flowers and visits...
I will be making thank you cards for months! Here are two thank you cards that I decided to enter in the "Less is More" challenge this week. The same design but reversed!

Stamps: Eastern Blooms
Card: Whisper White, Riding Hood Red (top card), Cherry Cobbler (bottom card)
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Cherry Cobbler
Other: White Embossing Powder, Many Thanks Sizzlits Die

A simple design, but arranging those letters in just the right place was somewhat tedious! I am happy with the results though — it was worth it. (I just won't be making large quantities of them!)

Thanks for stopping by — it is great to be back in blogland again :)
