Wedding Cake Card

How are you all this week
 We have been having the gas pipes replace in our area over the last few months and  this week  was our turn. My husband was around Tuesday but on Friday  they were connecting our pipe to the pipe in the road so I had the day off and spent some time in my craft room and created today's card. They turned the gas off on the morning and we were reconnected in the afternoon. Just all the holes in the road to fill now.

We have a couple of weddings coming up over the next few months so I thought I would make a start on the cards. I found  a stamp that I have never used so thought I would try it out, I am not sure who made it but it is grey unmounted rubber. 
Here is one of the cards I made. I stamped it in a Hickory Smoke Oxide  and heat embossed it in sparkly embossing powder. I was hard to photograph for you as it is on pearl card too  but  I assure you it really sparkles in real life.

I have also had a visit to the doctors, as I have had a painful elbow  for months. I did go at the beginning of December and was told it was tendonitis and it should go away. Well it hasn't and its got worse. Even everyday tasks are so painful and the painkillers are not working. Well I am now waiting to have a steroid injection at the hospital. So it could be a few months until it happens. Until then I will keep putting the ice on it .
Well I am now going to try to catch up on some TV I have so many programmes to watch we are nearly out of storage and hubby is out playing darts so I can watch away.
