Crafting again!

How lovely to be back crafting - and thoroughly enjoyed being back at my class today at the Crafty Patch with Sheilagh and a group of crafty ladies!
Here are a few photos of one of the cards I made today - you can get all the details of what we used over at Sheilagh's blog at http://meandmyinkyfingers.blogspot.co.uk/
Much lovely inkiness today with my favourite Distress Inks, lots of stamping and glittery pens. And isn't the big bow simply gorgeous :)

Christmas card

I'm long overdue flexing my crafty fingers! Here's a quick and easy card I have made, using pretty paper in my stash and a cute button :) The edges were coloured with chalk inks, and I added some faux stitching. Much as I love getting inky, sometimes it's nice to go back to basics!

Thank you

....for the kind messages on here :)

Glad to say I am now regaining much better use of my arm and shoulder, and have just started driving again! Very happy indeed - looking forwards to getting back to card making and classes at The Crafty Patch in Chorley very soon.

Quick card

Just a quick post - finally able to move my arm more easily and do a bit of colouring :)
This will be a thank you card when finished. The butterfly was cut out with a Marianne die, and sponged with distress inks. I used liquid pearls for embellishments.
Gosh I ache! But it's not the pain I had pre-op, so it is bearable! Will get a better photo tomorrow!

Post op

Well, barely 24 hours post op, and things are going well. Yes I ache and it's sore, but see this in a positive way - it's what I view as healing pain.  Lots of exercises and physio ahead to get my shoulder functional again, but I think I'll be working with my promarkers again before too long.:)

My brother was teasing me (as brothers do) about me missing my 'Blue Peter' hobby. One more comment and I'll mat and layer him with strong glue ;)

Time out

Not going to be around for a while - I go into hospital tomorrow to have surgery on my shoulder, and no idea how quickly it will heal and I'll get movement back again.  It has taken a 3yr battle with the NHS to get to this point - I could write a book on it!!

Hope to be back crafting/posting before too long,
