Going round and round

I have dragged myself off  my sickbed to bring you this tale of woe, sob sob. As I mentioned previously, a couple of weeks or so ago, my DH came down with a horrid cold, swiftly followed by my youngest son. Once they were a little better, I fell ill. After a few days I felt better and thought we were back to normal. Oh no, no such luck. As soon as I was well, both husband and son went down with the same horrid coughy cold with me looking after them. They got a little better, and then, you guessed it, I went down with it again. I'll spare you the details though, lol, but I might not be around for another couple of days.

Had to remind you that I am still alive though, lol, so I am showing you my Tag Tuesday tag ( thankfully made in advance ) and a few tags which went out with customer orders. 

Tag Tuesday theme was VALENTINE -

I came across this beautiful painting a while ago and thought she would look lovely on some tags -

and a card or two -

Oh, and I had to make a couple of tiny little boxes, one for a rosary and one for a beautiful religious brooch pin -

I hope you are all well and keeping busy creating beautiful new treasures. I a off to bed again :-(. Toodlepip xxx

Sending you get well wishes, dear Liz.
I've been so very lucky this winter, I haven't caught the bug yet. I sure hope I didn't just jinx myself.

Your tags are simply the best!

Last year we had a horrible flu thing going round over here too. It makes people have a horrible hacking cough, so I can feel for you. It is such na miserable thing, and lasts for weeks.I do hope you get well soon.
I was the only one who got it because I think I already have asthma. The Asthma clinic told me there were many hundreds of ill people coming thru the door.
Take care!!

You won Judy's prize from the GYB Giveaway! Congrats! I wond some beautiful hearts from her two years ago for the GYB giveaway and I adore them! She embroidered each heart, on different fabric in different patterns. And now I have put them in an old jar and have a jar of love from Judy! She also gave me a fabric rose that is burned around the edges that sits atop the jar. And a cute doily! You will love whatever it is she sends you !!!
I love your tags, dear girl, and the woman you used is so charming!!! Each one of your detailed cards and tag are just beauties, in and of themselves!
I too am on the second round of the virus I cought in Germany!!! And many friends in the states have had it as well. Viruses do move swiftly around the world sometimes. I hope you get better soon, take good care girl, I would make you my gluten free chicken noodle soup if I could. Hugs and healthy wishes to you,

Betsy said...
