Loyalty Giveaway

Finally!!!! I have battled with this flu virus and so far I have won the war.  When you suffer from COPD (chronic obtrusive pulmonary disorder) fighting the flu is a daily and aggressive fight. For two weeks I couldn't get out of my bed.  The first week was hell since I live alone and at times I thought it was over.  The second week one of my crafting buddies and a close friend decided to take care of me.  Unfortunately, my crafting buddy is a nurse so she took charge of my life and got me out of the bed and sitting for periods of time.  All she kept telling me was she could not allow my flu to turn into pneumonia and I agreed with her. My bedroom looked and smelled like a hospital room, all that was missing was the blood being drawn and shots being administered.  Around the third week I was mobile again but ordered to stay indoors and to avoid other people, which I obeyed to the letter and it worked.  I was able to craft a bit and surf the internet and even chat with folks on Facebook.  And now approximately one month later I am back to normal and happy to be in my craft room again.  My battle began on December 28th and ended a couple of days ago.  I am blessed!

I noticed that eight followers have left me, and that's okay. Sometimes we follow not for inspiration but for the free goodies and when there are no more goodies then off we go. For those of you that continued to hang out I have a little giveaway but before I share the giveaway I would like to share a couple of cards with you.

This card was made using Heartfelt Creations designer paper and a sheet of cardstock. The focal point was a topper I cut from one sheet of the paper pack and the rest was easy to assemble.

I completed the inside using the same designer pack and I just love how it turned out.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafting With Friends - Anything Goes
Colour Crazy - Wk#4 Anything Goes
Crafters Castle - #1 Anything Goes

 I created this card using some Graphic 45 paper that I had in my stash.  Yep on a mission to use what I have.

Below is the inside which is plain but coordinates with the front of the card.
I would like to enter the following challenges:

Polkadoodle - Week #4 Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - #142 Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - #274 Birthday

Now moving on to my giveaway.  I have 3 Spellbinders dies that I can share with someone since it appears I have two of them (that's what happens when you purge). Just add your name to Mr. Linky below and cross your fingers.  The photo only shows two dies but I am actually giving away three.

Hi lesia. Sorry to hear you've not been well, copd is no joke and your friend was right to look after you. My grandad suffered from it. Glad you're feeling bit better. I did leave blog land for a few years but been back for 2 weeks now, I did miss it. I love your cards, they are gorgeous but my favourite is the first one with the distressed look. I'm waiting on my papers from heartfelt , looking forward to receiving them. Just thought you should know mr linky is nowhere to be seen, maybe hiding lol. Take care honey

Love Sharon x

Oh Lesia, so glad you were cared for - my late DH had COPD plus other conditions, and pneumonia was always a risk. Some winters we hardly went out... so glad you are mended and enjoying life again.
Your cards are beautiful - I love how you use your papers so effectively.

So sorry to hear that you have been ill but very glad you were looked after. Do hope it wasn't the very nasty Australian flu that was in our part of the world earlier. Hope it is not too cold where you live with spring just around the corner. Keep well.
Love both of your gorgeous cards.

Lesia sorry to hear you have been unwell.December and January and usually peak times of respiratory infections! About the follower count decreasing...I think rather than actually people leaving it may be google- blogger doing a bit of cleaning up...my follower count has decreased and increased erratically over the past few weeks.
Love the scroll design of your card. I have several Heartfelt creations stamps and dies but never bought any of their papers. Your cards are inspiring.
So generous of you to have a giveaway!
Do count me in for the giveaway if it is not too much trouble to post overseas[ I am in India]

Good to hear that you are back to normal. Exactly 3 years back i was admitted in hospital for 4 days for a very bad case of pnemonia. Now ok. Art is the best therapy. Keep doing what you like and enjoy whatever you are doing.
