Time for a new challenge at Allsorts and this week Mervi has chosen the theme of 'Summer Girls', our sponsors are FlonzCraft and Buttons for Brains.
I thought the Penny Black image was perfect with the girl our for a ride in the Summer sunshine, I stamped her and the trees then masked a sun and added Pan Pastels and a Penny Black sentiment.
And another card using some of the new DP's from FlonzCraft along with the Vintage 50's Fashion Girl, one of my favorite FlonzCraft stamps which I paper pieced and created a little garden scene.........my elegant lady is all dressed ready for an evening on the town with the man of her dreams.....................you all know I live in a little fantasy world.
And a rather long overdue update, as I said some weeks ago I have been struggling coming to terms with everything and more so talking about it. It looks as though I am still going to need another op due to complications discovered in the more recent scans, so what seemed just a little problem initially which was elevated calcium levels, that was in fact a warning sign of the bigger problem.
Plus apart from the Parathyroid Adenoma's there have been knock on affects from the calcium imbalance including a stomach ulcer which after three months now seems under control with meds and the loss of several teeth, probably that is the part I have found hardest to come to terms with.
So I hope you will forgive the intermittent posts and blogging, it's very much a day at a time, some days I feel up for it, others I just want to curl up and hide. We are due to go on holiday late July and it's the anticipation of that which has kept me going, it looked dubious at one stage but a letter from my consultant enabled me to eventually get insurance cover.
Phew, that seems like an awful lot of garble, but so many Peeps have sent messages of kindness and good wishes and I have kept stum so I felt I had to eventually break my silence and it may even do me good to get it out of my system a little.
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
