Sharing an Oldie!

Hi friends.....hope you're all well....and happy Earth Day to you all!
It's been a strange week here, not much going on in the way of crafting but I think my
hospital appointment on Monday was a success......kind of lol. I had an injection for pain relief
but to be honest it's not made the difference I was hoping for. I do have some relief but am 
still struggling with my hands......although not quite as much........but I am finding it easier to move about so that's a fair trade off I suppose. And I have to start on some new drugs so there's still hope lol.
Anyway, onto brighter things......It's Friday which means it's share an oldie day with our lovely hostess Erika at Snappycrafts as she invites us to link up our past crafty makes.
In honour of Earth Day I decided to share a little scrap album page I made for Rebecca. She always tells me she loves me 'right around the world and back again' so this image was just perfect. It's from D'Arcy's Diaries & I remember I coloured her with Spectrum Noir pens, the butterfly border is Tim Holtz & I finished with a couple of die cut flowers & flourishes.
Thanks for calling today & whatever you have planned for the weekend.....have fun!

  3. Oh Jo sorry to hear the pain relief wasn't as successful as hoped.
    Loving your oldie, right up my street colour wise and your image is beautiful. I've not seen her before, such a trendy angel, loving the stripes.
    Thanks for joining me today Jo, have a super weekend whatever your plans.

    Hugs Erika. x

  4. Your card is beautiful Jo and the image is just perfect for the day. What a lovely thing for Rebecca to tell you. That's very special.

  8. Hi Jo, what a great shame that your hoped for treatment didn't work out as you hoped, but I do hope your pain goes soon.
    Beautiful card and I love the colours, Kate x

  10. Sorry to hear your pain relief isn't as good as you hoped. I hope something helps soon! Gorgeous card and you obviously have a lovely daughter who really loves her Mum! xxx

  11. A beautiful card Jo. I hope they get you sorted soon as it's a rotten disease. I have that on top of my fibro and it's not fun but I refuse to let it stop me doing the things I love. The frustrating thing is I have had to cut down on the amount I do but at least I can continue to do it right now, the future is not something I can control so it's a case of wait and see.
    However, good luck with the drugs, make sure you do any and all exercises they give you to do and hopefully things will improve for you huni Karen xx


Thanks for stopping by, I love to hear from you.....
