LPoCF #146 Bugaboo Stamps

 Hello again, 

Today brings us to another Anything goes Challenge with my team mates at Lil Patch of Crafty Friends, this fortnight we are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps who have kindly given us images to work with, I have used an older image called Bobble-headed Elf to make a Christmas card. I managed to make so many cards last year that I think I've only needed to make 20 all year to top my stash up. 

This week I started with a new physio, I read the Welcome email with a mild chuckle, at the first appointment they said they will devise a plan for how many appointments I will need. Physio is 8th in 7 years of ongoing treatment... he didn't offer any plans just yet other than 5 appointments in rapid sequence, this is to be weekly for the next 5 weeks, then see where things are. On a happier note  I've waited 6 months to get a new bird, a new baby budgie came home with us after my appointment, he is called Rolly, he is quite an acrobat and yes he likes rolling between his legs, he's also the first bird I've ever had that chooses to sleep on the floor under his seed container, I think he still wants to be in a nest like environment.... he kindly alerted me just after I'd settled down to go to sleep that the other budgie who has had a stroke had fallen off his perch by loudly screeching until he'd been put back on his perch....

Oh what a clever new budgie he is going to keep you on your toes Megan, hopefully this physio has some really good benefits and he finds just the right exercise to give you some real relief.
I was going for while for my right shoulder till my physio gave me quite a diff exercise, it totally set off recovery and has maintained it ...whereas four other exercises did nought. Love Bugaboo and like you I’ve plenty of cards, just dirtying through them to give a few sets away and finish writing in mine trying to get all overseas ones done this week. Love bugaboo, great work
Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too, especially in these unusual times! Praying you’re all kept well too!
Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x 😊

What a lovely image Megan, and your card is stunning - love that peek a boo die and how you have used it!
Do hope the physio 'works' for you - nothing worse than constant pain, and the frustration of being unable to do what you want to.
Stay safe

Hi Megan,
thank you for your visit and for the reminder about you.
Getting old now and the memory istn't as good as it used to be.
What a super card and that image is such a happy one.
Love the design it's so bright and cheerful and just what we need to cheer us up in these uncertain times.
Hope all goes well with your physio.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
