It doesn't rain for me... IT POURS!

Hello dear followers..

Yes.. in my life it doesn't just rain but POURS.  My hand is slowly healing and I'm able to do more than I have been for some time..  However.. on Sunday morning I awoke to having an abscess on one of the few bottom teeth that I have.  My face was so swollen and the pain was frightful.  I have a terrible fear of the dentist but I just had to go see him.  The result is that I have to have that tooth removed but not until the swelling goes down and the infection clears up.  He put me on antibiotics and now I about a two week reprieve.  I go to get it out on the 4th April.  I would so much appreciate your prayers that I wont be so scared.  I had major work done on my teeth two years ago and even knowing I had to go just for an examination I fainted five times!  Oh what a sook I am :)

Enough of my groaning and moaning.  Here is a card I made the day before I had my bandages removed.  I just couldn't wait, could I?  It's no work of art but it does show what we can do with dies.
The main dies used on this card was the Marianne Creatables Floral Layers,  Memory Box Chloe Stem and one of the Cheery Lynn Tiny Borders.  I used a Martha Stewart around the page punch on the corners and the bottom border.

Over the weekend just gone I made another card which I first intended to make some of my own flowers but my hands are not quite up to it yet so I used some rolled roses made with dies.
 The dies used on this card are:

Anja's Squares Creatables Die LR0242
Leafy Stem Creatables Die LR0150
Royal Rose Die-namics Die
Mini Royal Rose Die-namics Set
Memory Box Almira Flourish

I've had a couple of emails from some of you asking me different questions.  Whilst I've had my blog for some time I still consider myself a learner :)  so please.. If you want to ask me something email me at
  that way I can respond to you much better.  For those who have emailed me and not received an answer I would ask PLEASE send me a POKE...  my poor memory suffers so and the last thing I would ever want anyone thinking is that I don't care because that is not the case.  My poor health necessitates me taking medication that sometimes effects my short term memory.  So I say it again, PLEASE, if I don't answer or haven't answered email me again!   You are not being a nuisance, you will be making me happy.

Thank you for your love and support.  You're all the best.

hugs... Angie

lovely cards, glad your hand is doing better, and I know how you feel about dentist, but last time I went they had me take a pill an hour before going and talk about being relaxed, I didnt care a bit, told them they could pull all my teeth if they wanted to,well they didnt, hang in there !!!

I just found your blog from a card on pinterest.
Oh, you and me! I am petrified of the dentist, mainly because I have so many bad drug reactions. I have alergies to deadenings, most antibiotics-in fact don't know one I can take. I have two teeth that broke last summer. My dentist that I trusted and was so calming died quickly from cancer. Finally bit the bullet and went to one that seemed to be gentle to my panic attacks and the verdict is they both need pulled.One up one down, Referred me to an oral surgeon--two weeks ago and I still haven't got up the nerve to call him. It's the drug allergy problem that scares me witless. So here I am still suffering with the pain in my jaw. I thought I was the only one in the world that was so petrified to have dental work done.
