AnnaBelle Stamps Sketch Challenge~ AC 175

Hi Guys,

WOW, it's been a long time since I've created a card for AnnaBelle Stamps, I have a very good reason for my absence as on the 1st of November 2013 I had a Kidney Transplant(got the call on the 31st of October, nice and early lol)and Andrea was so kind to give me time off, thank you Andrea!  I'm doing really well, take each day as it comes and had an Awesome Christmas as I no longer have fluid and food restrictions and I got to eat lots yummy food(the scales had a freak out when I stepped on them lol) but it feels strange not going to the hospital 3 times a week for Dialysis, I have all this extra time now so the house is getting a really good clean and the kids don't get away with much as I can run after them roflol!
It's great to be back and creating for AnnaBelle, I've miss my fellow DT and I would like to say a BIG 'Thank You' for their support, this team is Awesome and I'm so glad I'm a part of it!!!
Well onto the sketch for this months challenge brought to you by AnnaBelle Stamps Blog and this is a great sketch...

It's a nice and simple card for my first card back lol!  I used the medium Butterfly from the gorgeous 'Butterfly Sunshine' Stamp Set and used my all time favourite embellishment 3mm Icicle Sprinkles!

  1. I am so glad you're better. What a blessing to get a transplant! Happy New Year!!

  2. So glad to see you back Kylie and to hear of the positives your transplant has brought you. And clearly you haven't lost your crafting touch! xx M

  3. A BIG welcome back hon, we really have missed you and your gorgeous designs. And to be able to eat and drink what you want, it must be heaven, keep on chasing those kids but honestly, the housework can wait lol. Hugs to you Therese x

  4. Fabulous to have you back Kylie. I've missed seeing your beautiful cards. Glad all is going well and hope that 2014 will be a fantastic year for you.......Forget the housework......It's no sooner done than you have to start again anyway LOL!

  5. Sorry bit slow catching up.
    Glad to hear your op went well and you have recovered well. I can't believe you are using your newly created spare time to clean! I say delegate the cleaning to the kiddos, its a skill after all.
    Fab card too :)


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to comment, it means the world to me!
