Sue Wilson Easel Card

Hello dear followers...

Yes.. it's me!  The slackest blogger you know .  I've been quiet because my health has deteriorated even more.  Without going into a long story...  My sister suggested to me earlier this year that I should ask my Pain Specialist to refer me to have an MRI.   In the 20 years I've had this back problem one has never been done.  Oh yes, I've had 2 or 3 CT Scans but not an MRI.  She said that at least this would show exactly what is wrong with my back.  I almost begged my pain doctor to order it and had it been the doctor I normally see, HE would have said no but I saw a woman the last time I went and SHE sat there for half an hour giving me so many reasons why I shouldn't have one but in the end... she ordered the MRI to be done.   Again, I'm not going into it all however, it did show quite a few problems with my lower back and the recommendation was....  "CT-guided steroid epidural injection recommended at L5-S1"   I go back next week to see the pain doctor (it was my GP who told me the results) and if she doesn't organise this injection then my GP said he will.  So I am hoping to have some relief from this crippling pain.

Ok..  enough about my health... here is an easel card I made using ALL Sue Wilson Dies.  I watched a video whee she was making a similar but it didn't have much colour and I do like to things MY WAY.  Sue used a different die for the top and the bottom part that makes it an easel.. I didn't have that die so I used VELA instead.  The dies I've used are...
Creative Expression - Mini Gemini - Vela
Creative Expressions - Expressions - Ornate Oval - Just for You
Creative Expressions Striplet - Butterflies in Flight (Butterflies only)
Creative Expressions -  Finishing Touches - Camelia - Open Petals
Creative Expressions - Finishing Touches - Laurel Leaves 

I have become rather addicted to the Creative Expressions Dies designed by Sue Wilson.  I love the versatility of each one.  Dare I say?  I have at last count 44 however!! I have more Spellbinders, Cheery Lynn & Marianne Creatables... and others.  So really... it's not too many   Can there ever be TOO many?
Here is my card in it's presentation box.  I cut the aperture in the box using the following...
Creative Expressions - Noble Dies - Double Pierced Rectangles.

That's it from me for now.  I know in my last post I promised something special for you all and again I have let you down.  I don't know what to say except lately my health dictates to me what I can or cannot do.  The promise is still strong... but I am not going to ask for your patience, instead I shall do it when I can and I am aiming to get back to a few things as soon as I have the injection mentioned above which will hopefully give me some relief.

much love and many hugs... Angie
