About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Scrappers Delight facebook freebie challenge plus please pray for my daughter Lynda.

Scrappers Delight has given a free image on the facebook group to join the challenge which ends on 31 January.
I have layered the free Scrappers Delight digi Spread Your Wings Fairy onto paper from Scrappers Delight Fairy Topia set.  Added stars from Spread Your Wings digi set.  Sentiment from Gingers House blog
Coloured digi with markers, prisma pencil and glitter pen.

If you would like to join in the challenge go to the facebook group and request the free image.
Some of you know that my eldest daughter Lynda had a fall in March and did nerve damage to her right leg and has been in pain and on crutches ever since with complex regional pain syndrome.

 I stayed at her house this week to be with her daughter Sian while Lynda had a hysterectomy on Tuesday afternoon.  The operation went well and she came home Thursday morning.  My other daughter Angela came down from the Blue Mountains to stay with her over the weekend so I came home Friday night.  At 5 am this morning (Sunday) the phone rang, Angela to tell us that Lynda had a fall, so Tony went straight over.  Lynda's blood pressure dropped and she collapsed and fell on the kitchen floor and broke her bad leg. Angela went in the ambulance with her.  She is in a private room in emergency due to her high level of pain.  She has a Spiral fracture of the Tibia.  They are going to operate at about 1.30 pm (if no one worse comes in) and put a Titanium Rod to stabilise it.  They are putting her in a cast in the meantime.  It is now 11.20 am here in Sydney.
Tony is with Sian and Angela's daughter Brianna and a friend of Lynda's is there.  Sue used to be a nurse so she is more help than I would be.
I wanted to go but Tony left in a hurry.

I am trying to keep myself busy and praying for her that she will be okay.  I appreciate any prayers, Thank you.
