Update & a share

Hi Lovelies,

I thought I  would pop in today & post a picture of a card I made.  

I know it's been so long since I have done anything with my blog.  Not even my two favourite blogs that I was a DT member for Try Stamping on Tuesdays & Die Cut Divas.  I have decided  with a very heavy heart that I had better quit them whilst I try to get  back on track.  I have been suffering from migraines for most of my adult life & it has gotten to the point where I get them every month.  My Doctor has changed my medication and at the moment the new meds' seem to be working.  I have been told that I may be able to get on a preventive medication that will reduce the migraines to once or twice a year.  Which I am so hoping will work.  

Life is full on at the moment.  What with the kidlets school(s), sports - Emsy  is now doing Karate (& I am going to join her), volunteering at the schools etc, etc.  Plus there was the minor fact  that my Laptop's charger decided to not work  anymore (thank you Ebay for my new charger!), then the car deciding that it needed to  have a hissy fit a week after it was serviced.  Thank goodness we now have a second car or there would have been major problems.  Although Emsy thought it meant she'd get out of going to school that day.  After being on holidays for two weeks you would think that she would be chomping at the bit to go & see all her friends.

I am suppose to be looking for work as well.  Between you and  me I am  scared witless. I haven't had a job in eight years and because I haven't been on the Dole (government handouts) I wont benefit from those job search agencies.  As they get money from the government for each person they find work for who has been on some kind of benefits.  

Well back to the card.  I was inspired to make this with Kaisercraft's 61/2" pad - Enchanted Garden, which I discovered today has been discontinued.  I used Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Jar & the sentiment is Kaisercraft's Enchanted Garden clear stamp-set.  The large (white) doily came from  a good friend & the smaller one & flowers are dies from Die-namics.  I love their dies.

Well lovelies after a full day of swimming lessons x 2, clothes washing, snake kid wrangling & learning how to make brushes for my favourite Gimp program, so I can do better card sketches.  I had better go, world war ????? has just started between the youngest & eldest kidlet & I had better go referee!  Take care & happy crafting xoxoxo

Hi Paula... have missed you! Love the card. It is really sweet. Sounds like life has been extremely stressful for you. You take care of yourself. I'm sure you will find something suitable in the way of a job.
