Misery calling...

Hi Girls

Well I'm still here, but am still miserable with toothache, but now it's got into the side of my head with pains in my temple and up to the top of my head.  I'm getting really fed up with it, and am at the dentist again tomorrow.  He's done the root canal bit, but not finished the tooth as he had me on antibiotics this week.  I ended up at the docs yesterday as I was really worried about the pain in my temple - it's very hot around there, and a strong pulse - which is not letting me sleep properly.  Anyway, she thinks it's related to the tooth prob, but is having blood tests done in case there is any inflammation etc.  Of course, I worry, 'what if there is.....?'  You know how we cross bridges before we get to them?  Well i do anyway!  She asked me how my eyesight was....  and I said OK...  but now am questioning is it???? LOL!

Right...  so I'm trying to explain my absence from commenting this week.....  I'm sorry, but sitting looking at the screen for long periods doesn't help.  I have been having a glance from time to time, but that's about all.  So apologies.... and I'll be back to my commenting self soon I hope.

Soooo onto my card....  I needed a relatively simple card to do, just to keep my mind occupied.  Sooo I used a Christy Croll image from Stamping Bella called Bffabugg.....   and coloured these little mites in with my trusty pens.  I used the oval nestie and then sponged while the nestie was still attached with versacolour in wheat.  Loads of glitter of course for these two little fairies!  Then I used Making Memories Boho DP (the dotty one), and the green one is Prima Marketing, hmmmm can't remember the name of the pad, think it's to do with fairies tho...  Some little daisy trim, and some stickles around the edge completed it.

Now...  what do you think of this?  I saw something similar in York a couple of weeks back, in one of the fancy gift shops......... and I thought....... "I can do that!"..... so I had a go!  It's kept my mind off my pain a bit this week so it's been good for me.. and really didn't take much doing.  I love things like this, think I'm turning into Kirsty Alsopp LOL!  It cost me a fraction of what it was selling for in the gift shop.

Right.....  sorry for rattling on - you know what they say, 'misery loves company'......  but needed to explain why I've not been commenting......

Hugs to all

  3. Auck Christine sorry to hear youre still suffering. Your card is beautiful and love the heart wreath. Christine I got the flat back pearls from a ebayer from China username cnlalang. I know its from China but Ive had wonderful service from them. I got my order within 10 days. If you go into advanced on the search bar on ebay and search the name, their shop should come up. And as for volume on my flowers, I use hot glue, would that make a difference?? Im not sure. Lee xx
