We're So Trendy - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

Hello peeps,
I had a right telling off from nurse Marion yesterday, I only went for my asthma check up & after discussing the pro's & con's of the Kindle v books, Marions holiday to Africa etc, we started talking about the amount of insect bites people are suffering this year & I mentioned I have a big nasty bite on my back & two small one's on my good shoulder that I'm keeping an eye on as I think they are infected, & how annoyed I was that I can't sling my handbag over my shoulder as it's too sore. With that Marion had my top pulled up inspecting my back & launched into a full on telling off for not seeing the doctor straight away as apparently a lot of people have been admitted to hospital this year from insect bites. I couldn't help but sit there giggling at sweet natured, softly spoken old Marion having a rant before disappearing out the door, I never knew she had it in her lol. Marion returned with a doctor who also told me off & has given me antibiotics as yes they are infected & I have a temperature although I don't feel poorly at all just a bit achy & hot & cold from time to time. The one on my back is a horsefly bite and on my shoulder they are mosquito bites so I guess I'm looking a bit tasty at the moment lol. Beware the bugs peeps and beware sweet little old nurses lol.

  22. What a gorgeous card :o)
    I know from experience about insect bites. I couple of years ago I had one on my hand and the next day it had blown up to alarming proportions and was red hot. I had to go to A&E and was given strong antibiotics and had to keep it elevated! 'Twas not a nice experience!

  32. Good morning, Mandy (it's probably evening there now)! Just popping by to say hi and to see this beautiful card up close. As a subscriber, I read your post every day but I have been so busy preparing to move that I haven't had much time to visit lately. I have long run out of adjectives to use when commenting on your cards so I'll just say that, as always, it is gorgeous! I'll bet you have a fortune invested in dies and flowers alone!

    Hugs, Annie
