Hi Bloggettes! I hope you're all fine and dandy! I am kind of.... turns out I've got carpal tunnel syndrome. Oh my is it painful! Its bad enough in the daytime.... night-time turns it into a monster! Its one of those things that no matter what you do it doesn't stop hurting! So I'm due an operation to get rid of it. I'm struggling doing anything. I pick things up and drop them, fumble, get pins and needles... anyway its a pain and I don't want to bore you to bits!

So who's for a piece of cake? I do have to say it was yummy and went down a treat with a coffee. I might have some chocolate cake if you prefer though?

Now my friend Maria gave me these lovely flowers from her garden - aren't they pretty? I almost managed to 'arrange' them instead of my usual ram them in method - lol Oh as an added extra I made the vase myself. I did an art and pottery course a few years ago. I really enjoyed the pottery. This is one of the first things I made. The only thing wrong with it is that it should be blue and cream! The reason its brown is because the Tutor set the kiln at the wrong temeprature so everything came out brown. Actually I quite like it in brown!

So finally (I'm typing this one handed!) Is my card for this weeks challenge over at Cute Daisy May. This week I asked for 'thank you' cards, always a useful card to have on standby. I'd made this before my wrist flared up thank heavens.

For a change I decided to colour Daisy in apricot shades......then I discovered I don't really have any patterned paper in those colours! I managed to find a bit of yellowy coloured paper and some apricot coloured card. A couple of flowers and brads finished it off.

So that's enough one handed-ness from me for one session - it takes ages to blog, well even longer than my usual epics!

Oh and does anyone else think we've slipped into Autumn?
