Liebster Blog Award

I have been awarded this blog award by 2 lovely ladies:-

Chris at

and Lorna at

Thank you so much ladies!!!

The idea of the Liebster Blog award is to spread the love from one small blog ( under 200 followers) to other small blogs that inspire you. This helps to spread knowledge and readership.
To accept the award, you must:
1) Link back to the person who gave it and thankthem for thinking of you.                

2) Post the award on your blog.                                                                       

3) Give to 5 bloggers who you appreciate and value                                             

4) Leave a comment on the blogs of the 5 people you have chosen to let them know

"Liebster" in German means "dearest", so to carry on the Liebster tradition,
 I am going to pass the award to 5 people whose blogs have been an inspiration to me and my crafting.

I would like to nominate:-

I hope you will accept the award ladies! Lea xxx

Calming Down at Last!

Finally things are starting to calm down! I am discharged from the knee clinic, my meds have been doubled to help me through, Tony is getting used to moving around in plaster, my tooth is mended with a nice gold inlay and I am waiting for a scan on my arm!!!!

On the plus side my friend had a baby on 29th February - what they called a 'Leapling' on TV!   I had started a card some weeks ago - before our catalogue of disasters - but it got abandoned along with all normal life!! Baby Leah arrived nearly a week early so I needed to get a wriggle on!!

Above is the card fully opened out, a Crafts-U-Print download which I prettied up with some baby pink pearls.

I highlighted some of the outlines with baby pink glitter just to give it a bit more dimension.

On Monday me and OH are off to Lindisfarne for a week in a retreat house and I think our need is great!!  No blog hop for me next week.  I am taking some crafting goodies to keep me occupied in the evenings (no TV).

Thanks for looking and for any comments left.
