Updates & Things To Share

Hello there, you may have noticed that I haven't been around lately. Unfortunately I was forced to take a bit of a blogging/crafting break and I wanted to pop on today to explain why.

WHERE HAVE I BEEN?
 
I have unfortunately been suffering with some health issues recently. Two weeks ago I went in to hospital to have a surgical procedure that will hopefully help with my medical condition. I was informed that I may feel worse afterwards and that has continued to this day, sadly. I am, however, hoping to start feeling better soon!
 
CLEARLY BESOTTED NOVEMBER RELEASE
 
Sadly, due to not being well, I have had to take time out from my Design Team duties. Thankfully Stephanie has been amazing about it. This means, that with great sadness on my part, I will not be taking part in the November teasers. I did make a couple of cards before I had my procedure but I didn't get time to photograph, edit and blog them. I am hoping that I may still get one up within teaser time but I am not sure. In the mean time, please go and see what the rest of the DT have done, they are amazing! Stephanie has links to all of the DT sharing over on her blog HERE. I know you are going to love the release, it is amazing!
 
HOLIDAY STYLE ONLINE CARD CLASS
 
The latest class from Online Card Classes was announced a week or so ago and it is called Holiday Style. It is a great online class which shares five different styles of holiday cards.
 

I am delighted to say that I am one of the Guest Artist's for this class. The class runs from the 9th November to the 25th and I would love it if you would think about signing up for the class, which you can do here.
 
#SHAREHANDMADEKINDNESS CHALLENGE
 
I am sure you would have seen the launch of Jennifer McGuire's #sharehandmadekindness challenge yesterday, but in case you didn't, I wanted to mention it here.
 
 
For the month of November, Jennifer will be challenging us to share handmade kindness. What a lovely idea! I am hoping to participate when I am feeling a bit better. Please pop over to her blog for all the details.
 
So that's it for today. I hope you are all doing well and I really appreciate you stopping by. I hope to see you again soon! :)
