Pink Bottle Card

A little while ago I bought myself a necklace which is a little 'bottle'. I love it so much and the more I looked at it I realised I could make something similar. All it is made out of is different shaped beads and other bead findings. Before my back went on me I decided to make some of these little bottles and incorporate onto a card.

Well, while it's hard to do anything, let alone craft, I have managed to put this idea into practice.

Here is my little bottle.... incorporated onto a card. The die I have used on this card is called LARGE LANTERN CREATABLES DIE by Marianne.

Thank you to all have sent me your good wishes and prayed for me. Please continue to do so. I'm still in terrible pain but I am trying so hard not to let it get the better of me. I'M DOWN, BUT NOT OUT!

Down but NOT out!

If it's not one thing, it's another. This year has not bee kind to me but I am sure ALL things happen for a reason. Well my friends, I am in so much pain at present. I have a bulging disc in my lower spine that is resting on the sciatic nerves. I did this six years ago and was on my back for five months. I will NOT let it do that to me again. Surely all the weight I have lost has to be a help...

I am going to TRY and keep crafting if my pain levels permit but I'm not promising. To all who supported me by writing to the person who had put my work on her site... it paid off and she has finally removed it. THANK YOU. Us crafters around the world need to band together and support each other when things like this happen. On our own it's hard to do anything but support from so many makes us like an army.

I will continue to keep you updated on how I am. I am currently working on a few little ideas using beads.. Just like my pins I showed you all some time ago. My plan is to incorporate these beading ideas onto my cards.. I wont tell you just now what I am up to but as soon as I get something done I'll be sure to show it to you.

Thanks again for your support. Please keep me in your prayers. hugs... Angie

Just a word of the Duchess, our Fergie. She is doing so well and continues to put a smile on my face. She's not too sure about my walking frame except that it's like a step up to Mummy's shoulders. She loves to jump up on my shoulder and will do it when I least expect it. Not too good at present but try telling her that. Perhaps her ideas are better than we think... I'll post some up to date photos of the girl soon. Meiowwwww from Fergie!
