Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Coops, what an amazing card as always. Only just starting to comment as I was in hospital last Tuesday to go to theatre for steroid injections in my right shoulder and wrist and then my eldest was admitted on Thursday with a partially collapsed lung and had a chest drain for four days. He's come home for a few days under "house arrest" before he goes to his own home. Children eh? Take care. Hope hubby hears soon about his appointment at the hospital for his veins. He's got to the stage they need to sort it. Kym xxx
