Hearing Voices In My Stethoscope .....

In the grand scheme of things this week has been fairly uneventful.  Dad only had one hospital appointment and it wasn't a procedure!  It was his Pre-Assessment appointment prior to the start of his Chemotherapy next Thursday.  He was on top form and performed beautifully to his captivated audience.  Not much serious talking and far too much laughter really LOL!  But then its his positivity that's keeping us all going.  I've also been asked to design his "Funeral Program" ... talk about feeling obliged to do something!  I have to admit i'm finding it extremely difficult to do, but he has me over a barrel LOL!!!  I'd like to say a huge THANK YOU to Jo who has offered to help me out with cluster frames.  I decided I would design some and use on the back page .... Pfft, hadn't got a clue how to do them or where to start, just thought they look pretty L2MQ, didn't realise it'd be that difficult!  

Anyway its Saturday again and means just one thing .... Its time for SKETCH SATURDAY.  This weeks fabulous sketch has been designed by my gorgeous, kind, caring, generous teamie TERRY.  She has designed a brilliant sketch and arranged the most fantastic prize too from a very generous sponsor who is offering copious amounts of goodies!

They are ...

Art Journey is the most specialised, but above all the cosiest (online) StampStore in Holland.  The Website has 3 different languages, so therefore is accessible for everyone. Service and quality are very important to Louisse for her store. Visit the online webstore through and you will see lots and lots of yummie stuff that we crafters really really need (LOL).

Art Journey offers a wide range of goodies for all crafters.  

Besides lots and lots of common craft products, they also have their own stamps!  
If you have the opportunity to visit the Store in Sleen (in the Netherlands) then Louisse and Liesbeth will be very happy to say Hi to you during a workshop or in the store itself.  Don't hesitate to come on over to the online webstore or to the store in Sleen and you will find lots of yummie stuff. Terry went there yesterday to in with a workshop and had a great time ...
