Stamp Addicts is a family run business based in Bedfordshire and have been in business since 1992. We have watched the popularity of rubber stamping and all papercrafts steadily increase over time and now manufacture our own branded rubber stamps which frequently feature on Hochanda TV as well as craft shows across the UK.

For my card I used a Phill Martin Stamp called On Safari I have had this for some time but this is the first time I have inked it up.

Many thanks for your comments on my previous posts and some have been asking about how my brother got on at his appointment........
Well he didn't see a doctor he saw a nurse who could not understand why the operation did not get approval, although his legs are bad she thought they were ok..........duh........he was told he would be referred to a Dermatologist at the Hospital.........who knows when that will be, until then he has to just carry on with the cream and the pain.
I will see you all later I am having a day at home hopefully creating new art for you all to see in my upcoming DT postings.
My partner has gone fishing for the day, I managed to complete all the tasks possible at my mums and I know that they will be ok until I see them tomorrow.
Hugs to all and stay safe

I would like to thank everyone who commented on my last post everyone made a comment about the situation that we all seem to be in these days it makes such a difference when you know that you are not alone in what seems to be a very dark period, you are all so very kind.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

I will be visiting everyone soon but thank you to everyone that has left me such wonderful comments.
I am off to my mums as usual I am cooking the roast dinner today and probably do some gardening.

I was a little upset this week, my brother, who my mum lives with, has been in pain for some time with his legs, he has been waiting for a hip replacement.  Unfortunately the pandemic arose and everything was put on hold.  He has also some very bad skin issues on the bottom of his legs, his mobility is limited and I try to do as much for him as I can on a daily basis.  
He has been asking the doctors for some time for some anti-biotics and if they could do something to help clear the skin issues but it wasn't until he got a leg infection that they gave him some medication otherwise he was just told to put some cream on, which he has been doing religiously, all he wants is to be able to go for walks and be 'normal' and active again.
He visited the nurse at the surgery a couple of weeks ago and was told that his legs were well enough to enable him to have the hip replacement, even though she could not get a vein to get blood with his skin being so hard, obviously he was over the moon and so hopeful, he then received notification that he could have the operation in October after a pre op assessment..........he went for this assessment at the hospital on Thursday and was told that there was no way they could operate with his legs being is such a bad condition.  They told him he needed to see the doctor face to face and get a referral to a dermatologist.  
Before he got home from the appointment the doctors surgery had rang, they had received an e-mail from the hospital. 
My brother was then informed by the surgery that he had to speak on the phone to the doctor before he could make an appointment.  Needless to say the operation is not going to happen anytime soon and he has to suffer the pain for longer.
I was so upset for him and so very angry, I feel that COVID is now being used as an excuse not a reason.
Sorry for this outburst but I feel so hopeless and so very, very angry. 
Hugs to all see you soon
