Happy New Year??? Not yet...

Without going into too much detail, it's not been a good start to the New Year... My dad had to have a bowel resection and it's not gone to plan... firstly he was discharged way too early in my opinion, and was brought back to hospital by ambulance 3 hours after coming home, spent the next 3 hours in resus, and then another 11 days in Intensive care, one day back on a normal ward, and now back in Intensive care... 
So... to help with stress, I've been working more on my granny stripe blanket. I love all the colours, and it's getting quite heavy now as well. I'm about half way up our double bed.  
 

And here is the card I've made for the Intensive Care Unit, thanking them for looking after dad.
It's a digital stamp, and she's called Verity. Click here to go to the order page. I also finally bought the gorgeous Martha Stewart Doily Punch I've wanted for AGES! The papers are from the new Do Crafts Lover's Lane.
This also fits in with the challenge over at I love Promarkers. Be sure to check that out!


I took this photo to try and show the gloss on her eyes, and also my "not bad" colouring of her hair. I'm not normally good at colouring hair or fur, but I like this attempt.
