It's time again

Hello dear friends and followers. How glad I am to see you all back again. Feeling a little tired after my weekend at my brothers. But it was so good to get way from home after a long week with hospital visits, sick kids, employment office etc. Now we have a new week that is busy in another way. My oldest is turning 6 on Sunday, so it's party time and this will be my last week with sugar for quite some time. I will now try to eat better and live better to get my joints and rest of my body to feel better. I feel this will be the challenge of my life, but I thought sharing it will make it a little easier.

Hopefully doing this I will lose the weight I have gain when I have not been able to move and take pills that put weight on when you go on them, and then the same when you go off them... Oh well. Have not taken a painkiller in 6 weeks or so and finally start to stabilize a little more. Just a little more pain without than with the pills, and I already feel a lot hmmm cleaner in my body. I can't put it in any other way. I don't feel foggy anymore that mist is gone. Now time to kill everything that likes sugar in my body. I will do this in small steps and don't throw myself out like a maniac, step by step is my way. Keep your fingers crossed as two more doctors want to do surgery on my foot at this moment. I don't!

Ok, got carried away again. I hope you know you don't have to read everything I write here. I just feels good to let everything out somewere, and this place is as good as any other. LoL But I do have a card to show you as well. Nice, right?

This one is showing the image called Tango. Isn't she just lovely? I needed a break from Christmas for a while and thought I could do a card without red for a change. Yeah, right! What colours do I go for? That's right, black and red. Oh well, not Christmas at least. The designer paper is from Dovecraft and I have had it for while and didn't got to use it. As always I am hording for worse times, whenever that will come. I like having my pads and bits and bobs around. But even for me it's starting to get a little too much. LoL

Back to my poor card. She is coloured with my Letraset family in warm greys and reds. I made some flowers for the first time in very long, I have lost the grip when it comes to that. Tried making some old fashion roses, disaster. Have to take my scrapbox and cut tons up and work on that fingering again. These rolly things ok, but the others. Some swirly die from Doohickey/Magnolia is used as well as a leaf branch. Pearls from Bunny Zoes and some silver stickles on top of the flowers in the end.

As always when we have a challenge from the Paper Shelter going and this weeks popular theme is Anything goes we are sponsored by the Paper Shelter with a gift voucher worth $30 if you play with a TPS image. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice. I hope you will come and join us in our fun this week.

Sorry, this post got a little long, I am really trying to keep things short but every now and then I have a minor setback. LoL

Love n hugs

Hi Sweetheart, Im sure with your determination you will cope with the loss of Sugar, I try very hard to avoid any extra sugar in my diet, I have a under active thyroid and of course its very difficult to loose weight, easy enough to put it on but a pain to get of, we shall have to support each other over this.
Wow love your card, that image is just fabulous, your colouring and your card design is just stunning. hugs Shirleyxxxxx
And congratulations on being without your pain killers it must be difficult at times, but at least if you need to take them they should be more effective when you do. hugs Shirleyxxxx

Such a cute image Marie, you don't need to apologise hun, a lot of us 'less able' crafters know that when we blog our illness is always there someway and somehow. It helps us all 'deal' with the pain and other stuff!
Have you definitely got to have an operation on your foot? If you do I really hope that it will sort your health problems out.
Back to the important thing, lol, the card is gorgeous. The red, white and black scheme if fabulous, love your flowers they are so cute too! Karen x

Hej, korsade fingrar var det här =)på båda händerna. Klrat det ska gå bra för dig.
Underbart kort det här, jag gillar verkligen färgkombon svart och rött. Jag har varit dålig att kika runt och fick mig en rejäl dos av snygga kort här. Du är så duktig på julkort, det med renen blev ju toksnyggt.
Sköt om dig, kramen

Tack för inbjudan, jag poppade såklart direkt in och anmälde mitt lilla projekt.
Satte även upp mig som följare så kanske jag kan hålla lite bättre koll på vad du pysslar med over there ;)
Tango ÄR ju rött & svart så vad skulle du kunna gjort annorlunda liksom, superläckert kort!
Kram Annelie

I cannot see anything wrong with your flowers! Your lady of the night is beautifully coloured and I love all the embellishments and particularly the colour palette. That background paper is perfect.
