Just thought I'd up-date you again - second treatment completed yesterday and dare I say there is a little improvement? It is certainly showing in my blood tests, although it might take a while for it to filter through to my body! But I woke up this morning and my knees weren't as stiff and swollen, although there's still a way to go with the rest of me!
Still don't know how long it's going to take before I'm back but, in the meantime, here's another card I've managed to produce this past fortnight. My middle niece has just moved into her first home with her darling baby daughter and when I saw this beautiful image by A Day for Daisies, it so reminded me of the pair of them.
Stamp: A Day for Daisies, 'Sweet Boy' (but I think it could be either boy or girl!)
Papers: Digi Papers by Sarah Smutchz, 'Dainty'
I wanted something delicate and pretty to put with this image and these beautiful digital papers were just the thing. The stamp could be either girl or boy, I think, and it certainly looked like my little grand-niece to me. This image is so like a photograph we have of the two of them, it was uncanny.
I told you I'd been gathering colouring tips whilst I've been away and I hope I've managed to use some of them in this 'portrait' - I certainly feel I've got some reasonable shading going on here. I hope my niece will like it.
I wish it wasn't such a struggle to create at the moment - my head is full of ideas but it's too tiring to do much with any of them. Still, there's a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel now and I can't wait to see if this new drug lives up to the promise.
Might I also take this opportunity to say a big 'thank you' to Christine, Bron and Lin who, in my absence, have given me awards for my blog. It means a lot, ladies, and I promise I'll publish them properly once I'm back.
Take care, my crafty friends.
