I'm soooo sorry....

...I haven't been around for a while, I am having some problems with my neck, shoulder and hands. I've been suffering for a couple of years, but the last few months it has gotten worse and over the last couple of weeks I was barely able to move one of my arms.The hospital say it is strain, from looking after Meg, my youngest daughter who is disabled. I have spent 22 years pulling, pushing and rolling her around to wash, dress, shower and toilet her and it is finally taking a toll. Apart from painkillers, rest and some physio there is not much they can do for me.

Anyway that's enough moaning from me, I haven't made any cards for a couple of weeks (resting my shoulder) and am on holiday next week so I am going to show some cards that I had already made but not yet blogged throughout this week and then next week, while I am on holiday, I will schedule some posts to show you some Wedding invitation samples that Mei asked me to make for her stall.

Today is Teddy Bo Tuesday and the current challenge is Distress It and is being hosted by team B, as I haven't been able to make any cards recently my card does not follow the challenge but is one I made a while ago for a friend's husband.
