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

Update on ME

Hello dear friends..

Surgery went well. Now comes the hard part... doing without the use of my right hand.  I'll be having the dressings removed on Tuesday but I think it'll still be a while before I'm back to normal. Thanks for your messages of love and prayers.

much love and hugs... Angie

The time has come

Hello dear followers..

Well the time has come when I must stop crafting but only for a few weeks.  This Monday, 4th March,  I will be having surgery on my right hand to hopefully, fix the carpal tunnel problem that is causing me so much pain.  Twelve weeks later they will do my left hand.

Here are a few cards I've made over the past week or so.

This first one was done with one of Marianne Craftables new dies, Coffee Cup.  This die comes with a Cup, Saucer and Spoon.  
 I was looking through my cards folder and I don't think I showed you these two next cards.  One was made for a special friend's new baby.  The second one was made for the first birthday of another friend's granddaughter's.  Both are Easel Cards.

Please keep me in your prayers as I go to have my surgery on Monday.  While I have waited so long to have this procedure done, I am a little nervous. It was explained to me the risks by my plastic surgeon and while there is a chance of nerve damage... be it ever a small one.. It just has to be done.  I need my hands!
Much love.  Angie
