Howdy Partners

How are ya'll doing?

I hope you have had a good week and are getting ready for the weekend. No big plans here. Many of you may remember my sister was in a horrible car accident about 4 months ago. I am taking her to Shands this Saturday for a MRI. She is still experiencing LOTS of pain in her knee and we are hoping she will not need more surgery, but that is not looking so good. The doctors did not do X-rays of her knee since they were focused on both her broken feet and may have missed a major injury. She has been complaining at each check-up, but they continued to tell her it was just nerve damage. Please keep her in your thoughts. Thanks!

I worked on a card this evening for the MAG Create-a-Critter p. 59 Challenge, but it already closed. Bummer! I think I should write the deadline down when I list the challenges of the week. Sounds like a new plan and a new column in my notebook. Luckily, I found another challenge...Queen of My Craftroom. The Monday Mojo challenge is Create a Critter ~ any animal. Yeah!


Materials:
Flair Design paper
black cardstock
Create-a-Critter cartridge ~horse (p.59) ~ 3 1/4" and 1 1/4"
wiggly eyes
black gems
black braiding cord

Challenges:
Charisma Cardz ~ 4 Legged Friends
Queen of My Craftroom ~ Create-a-Critter

Hoping you have a great weekend.
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  2. So sorry about your sister's continued pain. If she still isn't getting any answers, you might want to suggest that she go get a second opinion. I've been fighting with a neck injury for 5 years, and the original doctor said it wasn't possible to hurt where I was hurting...huh??? We all are taught to put our trust in doctors, but they aren't ALWAYS right. I hope she feels better soon.

  6. Georgiana, your sister will be in my thoughts and prayers. I hope they are able to diagnose the problem without surgery, but most of all, I hope they are able to take away her pain. Please keep us posted.

    Your card is so adorable! The paper totally looks like canvas! I love the effect! I'm glad you were able to find another challenge - I've missed challenge deadlines, too! And I did not know there was a rabbit holiday in September! I am very intrigued! Gonna have to look that one up!! :D

  10. Great card. Hope you sister will get to feeling better soon. Knee pain is the worst. I had to have an extensive knee surgery a couple of years ago and it has never been the same, so hopefully she will be able to get it resolved without surgery.
