What can go wrong ....



Will go wrong!! I had just started crafting after an accident to my left hand nine weeks ago when my computer got sick with a very nasty virus, this got fixed but I was advised to use System Mechanic to rid my computer of a load of junk - this took five days leaving it running day and night and not being able to use it. After which my monitor said bye bye so had to wait for a new one. Meanwhile we decided to move to Talk Talk ( far cheaper )they gave us a date Oct 14th that came and went and we were disconnected so I phoned and was told our date was booked for 20th Nov'!!!! So I asked them to change it and they said would make mew a priority - They lied! - after 2 weeks we were reconnected with our previous server yesterday and still have to wait till Nov' to connect to talk talk - I wanted to tell them to stick it! but apparently they are much cheaper, so were going ahead If I disappear you'll know why.

I hope I haven't bored you too much - a quick update on my hand - it is still pretty stiff and painful and I have to stick with the physio hourly and the more pain I suffer ther quicker it will heal! I have a few more weeks before I can drive again - It's a cruel world!

I have been catching up with my SBS17 sisters blogs and friends and other blogs I love to visit and the creations are amazing, it's taking me some time so forgive me if my comments are a bit brief, but none the less, they're sincere

This Sarah Kaye card is one I made for my stepgranddaughter just before I lost my connection. She is coloured with WS crayons and the backing papers are from Crafty Indiviuals. The flower is die cut using my cuttlebug. Thanks for stopping by and I would love to recieve some comments from you. I have some more cards in the pipe line hope to blog them next week xxx

A lovely card Joy...what a pest about the internet services. Your hand must hurt so much but I understand about the more it hurts the quicker it heals. All those neurons firing away - ouch! I look forward to stopping in now I am back on line properly myself. Keep well. Kylie
