Good Morning Ladies,
I had a bright and early message from Lynda who had just been informed that she hadn't made the Operation List again today, I just feel so sorry for her, I want to call them myself and ask them what on earth is going on (Not that I would of course)! I have been where Lynda is after my second hip replacement I went through hell, I got a bone infection and then my femur broke, meaning that the reconstruction surgery I had waited years for had to all be removed, I waited in hospital on Traction for weeks for my surgeon to get back from a trip to do my surgery (as he wouldn't let anyone else do it), as the days and then weeks go by you do get more and more depressed, people come in, have surgery and then leave and you are stuck there. When I left that hospital I left with my mental health in pieces, I don't think that they understand that when they keep knocking you back. So Lynda if you are looking in I do understand how you feel, you keep your chin up and don't let this get you down my lovely friend, I so wish I lived closer so that I could come and craft with you every day. Sending you huge hugs xxxx
Exciting day today, it's Groovi Club day, we are having a Christmas buffet lunch today and a Secret Santa Card Swap, I am not as anxious this time as I know exactly what to expect.
My lovely girls are taking me there, having them both driving has made such a difference, I went to the GP's for a Blood Test today without Paul !! Sophie took me because I went with her last week, it meant that I had to put on a brave face too, having Blood taken always makes me feel peculiar, Sophie reminded me a few times that I told her that it wasn't 'too bad' last week when she had hers, (little did I know that they bought some 'Emla (numbing) cream on line and she had liberally applied it to both elbows, quite smart really and this morning I was regretting turning her offer of using some down. (they always have problem finding my vein)!
I thought we would have a walk down Memory Lane today, these cards are from back in November 2017, the first card is a 'Clean & Simple' Sympathy card that I made using a Stampin Up stamp set,
I simply coloured the stamp on the block using SU Blending pens and the ink pads. then stamped it onto the card and layered with the matching coloured card stock.
The second card is one of Michele's I chose it for it's 'Clean and Simple' style, this is using one of those lovely Embossing folders from Craft Stash, using Black and white just adds to the simplicity but gives it a touch of WOW too, it must have been good as it was a runner up in a magazine at the time! Lovely card Michele xxxx
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
