Recycled PB Challenge

Hi, I hope you are  all enjoying the lovely sunshine, I have been trying to catch some of it in between lots of appointments & waiting for repair men who don't turn up!!, I am not amused, I had to go to the launderette as a week of no machine was impossible, I counted 26 towels , never mind all the rest which amounted to 6 loads, enough of my dirty washing.
Another delightful encounter was the physio,  I just about had to be scraped of the ceiling, it was pure torture, still if I get my hand working it'll be worth it,  they're still talking possible surgery  & I have a smaller splint but still not able to colour but can work with thumb & forefinger.

I have at last managed something for the PB challenge my first in 10weeks.
The challenge is to recycle,
 I rescued the pink glitter card from the pile ready for the bin & put it through an SU embossing folder, & spellbinder die

My first card for a while, after the success of the scrapbook page a friend asked me to make a card for an aunt, all flowers ,so here it is, a totally different style for me, she was pleased with it, so that,s what matters.

All the flowers are from WOC, leaves MS punch, embossing folder & Spellbinders dies.

I'm back at physio tomorrow, so will see what happens, I'm still having a lot of pain, but some of the swelling has gone down, so that's a plus.
Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow
Take care

This is my first crafting effort since my accident, it's taken around two weeks, I'm having it framed as a christening present.
I'm quite please at how well it's turned out as I'm quite restricted & only using thumb & forefingers, all the flowers are hand made, also my first attemp at making roses.
All materials are Stampin up, escept the letters which are Hero Arts.
Thanks for all your good wishes, I really appreciate them.
Take care

Hello Again

Hi all, If you remember me that is, been missing for a while.
I'm still having major probs with my finger & going for physio, also wearing a compression to try & get the swelling down, surgery still isn't quite off the agenda, just wish it would get better.
I'm looking very posh with my finger stuck in the air, even though it has a spring support clamped over it, this makes any colouring impossible, writing too with difficulty.

I actually have managed to make a couple of things, so will post tomorrow, totally different for me as there's no coloured images.

Hope the weather improves soon it's like winter here, even though yesterday was actually like summer, Ah well, would,nt it be boring if every day was the same.
Take care ,
Ann x
