Tattered Lace DT cards Through the arch window



Hello Peeps, apols I'm still very much MIA, my body's not coping with the infections very well, the more antibiotics you have the less effective they become which is not good when you are already immune compromised.

I've had six extractions in the last few weeks, hence they are keen to try this laser removal of nerves to try and save the ones where normal root canal treatment has failed - I now have only six teeth without root canals........I dare not count the hours spent in the dentist chair recently. So I think I need to take a bit of a blog break for a week or so until I feel more on top of things, my mojo is in a creative slumber it seems, so thank goodness I tend to work ahead and have several posts scheduled.

A few shares of some of my makes for tomorrows Tattered Lace Pick of the Day launching at 9pm on Ideal Word. As I mentioned at the weekend I didn't get too many made this time round due to feeling under the weather with the latest round if meds.

My top card uses the new Essential Window Die, it's quite a biggie at approx 21cm x 15cm.


The tunnel card is made from TL Large Panorama dies inner plates and concertina sides die sets, they came out way back in about February and sold out mega fast. The sentiment is also TL and Charisma Poinsettia, another very recent release.


Another using the window die along the same lines as the top card............I know we are looking from outside at the outside, put it down to me feeling so dopey this week, hubby suggested it's artistic licence.


Just the one more, again using the Panorama dies, TL border and Bird Tapestry from the Panorama range.

This all rather reminds me of playschool, whose children used to watch that...................through the square window, then there was the arch window and round window, were there any more ? That half hour or so was a blessing when they were small as it always kept them entertained and allowed me to get dinner on the go.

Have a good week all and many thanks for popping in.

Brenda please rest, no stress, no worrying, just you. I am so sorry the teeth haven't settled down. It's painful, I know. Your body needs some time to recover and rest is the only option. Will be thinking of you huni.
Your cards are beautiful and I love that window die Karen xx

Robin said...

These are all very lovely! The one where you're looking outside from the outside is my favorite! I love the little flower box and it just looks so fun. Artistic license is a wonderful thing. Sorry you're still feeling poorly. I hope it gets better soon. You will stay in my prayers. Hugs, Robin

Gorgeous creations, fabulous dies and as always great flowers.
Poor you, I hate the 10 minutes in a dentist chair for a check up, never mind anything else, hope the new treatment works asap.

You should take a break at least to give your mojo a chance to take a breath and then to come back in full speed!
But I like the delicate cards you made. Thought the first one was stamped when I cought a glimpse of it...that one and the last look both so delicately beautiful! Take care of your body; it needs healing time... Hugs, Gerrina

Hello
Want to drop a note to thank you for your sweet comments. They mean a lot to me that you have taken the time to stop by. I have not been on the computer much. As I am caregiving for a dear friend who had Stage 4 Lung Cancer. Every day her fragile body is deteriorating. I have not ever seen someone dying right in front of me. All I can do is just keep her comfortable, encourage her and trust the Lord to be her comfort and joy. So please do not be dismayed, when I am unable to stop by your blogs and leave some love.
Your project/card is amazing and look forward to stopping by when I can. Have a wonderful day and even better week.
In His Joy
Berni

Merry said...
