The lifts not going to the top floor



Hello Peeps, hope you are all having a good week.

This really is a mega quick post, nothing going to plan at this end, just a body that won't play the game.......again. I came back from holiday so refreshed, more mobile than in ages and with a lot less pain, so I am well miffed that it's all back to square one.................could the answer be a permanent holiday in the sun ?

So huge apols that I've not visited any of you very much, but at the mo I can't navigate my fingers and arms to  use the keyboard properly, let alone see it clearly for more then a few moments at a time. I'm only grateful that I managed to get some magazine work off to the States at the weekend, otherwise I would be well and truly up the creek.

All of that means not a lot to share other than a couple of pieces I made a while back using my favourite masking and inking, samples for Stampalot I think, can you tell the lift's really not going to the top floor at the moment ?


Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday everyone, thanks for taking a look and sorry if I sound like I'm moaning, it's just the frustration of the limitations this silly disease creates.

Hello Brenda, Your cards are gorgeous - the colours and masking are fabulous.

I'm sorry to read that your mobility isn't where it should be. Definately sunshine provides us with healing therapy. I wish I could send some of our sun your way :) I hope that you feel better soon, Shirleyx

Mummy lade said...

Sorry to hear you are in pain Brenda. Its this bloomin' soggy wet weather.....it gets into the bones! Im convinced of it. I must say, these cards are so beautiful. I love the sentiment on the first card although if the most beautiful things in the world cannot be heard or seen......well then I must be a bloomin' ugly mug because I never shut up and you can hear me coming before you see me, lol!!

Kat said...

Loving these simple elegant cards Brenda, just stunning.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling too good at the moment. My niece has had MS for 24 years, since she was only 21 and just married. Her best times were her 3 pregnancies. But she's a great girl and has always tried to do everything she can with her boys when she's well. The youngest will be 17 in a fortnight so I guess they all know what she can and cannot do. She's like you she just gets on with it and does her best to do what she can when she can. It's a horrible disease but I think she's like you and just deals with it.

Hope you feel better soon,

Take care,

Kat xx

Zoe Sanderson said...

Hugs, positive thoughts and utter admiration. XOXO Zoe

Gerrina said...

What a "peep"-dissease!!! Just wish the MS could leave you alone or at least stay at a point that you keep enough energy to get the lift a lot higher... Hope for warmer weather for you, maybe that will do the trick for a while ... The cards you made are beautiful and I'm sending some positive energy to you, maby it will help. Greetings, Gerrina
