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.

Joined another design team - Jo's Scrap Shack Fun Day Friday - plus update on Lynda

I have good news - I have been added to design team A for Jo's Scrap Shack Fun day Friday challenge blog.  The new design team has been announced today

My first challenge will be 134 on 15 April, 2016.

I have been having worse pain days this week so this helped brighten my days.

I came home on Sunday night after seven weeks staying with my daughter Lynda looking after her.  She has chronic regional pain syndrome in her right leg after a fall in March last year and has been on crutches ever since.  On 19 January she had to have a hysterectomy on the Tuesday afternoon and she came home on the Thursday morning.  On the following Sunday she blacked out and fell and broke her bad leg.  (Thankfully it wasn't her good leg she broke).  Thankfully my other daughter Angela was staying at her house that weekend and called the ambulance.  They operated on her on the Sunday night and put a titanium rod and pins in her leg and she came home the next day.  Angela took a week off work and stayed with her.  She had to go back to the mountains the next week so I went down to Lynda's to help her.

I came back home last Sunday night as Lynda is determined to look after herself (on her crutches) with help from her daughter Sian, and Sian needed her bed back.  Sian is in her final year at school so has important exams this year.   Angela's second daughter Emily has been staying there this week to work at the zoo so she was able help out.   I would appreciate prayers for Lynda as she is still in a lot of pain and not able to walk without the crutches.  Thank you.
