Gerbera Jar


Hello and welcome to my blog.  I can't believe it's over 4 months since creating a card since my accident.  I'm now on the mend able to access my craft room and have the mojo to start creating.  I'm learning to walk again which takes me so long to move about our home.  I know that Rome wasn't built in a day so it's going to take me a little while to get into the swing of things.  
My first card back today is for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge and this week is Challenge #333 and the theme is Anything Goes and our sponsor is Fred She Said Designs.  

Just a quick peek on inside the card.

Hi from New Zealand

Hi everyone from New Zealand.  I'm so sorry I haven't been blogging or creating cards in the last 3 weeks.  On 21st February I had an accident on a building site where we are currently renovating a home for renting.  I had just finished with my kitchen man and unfortunately stepped backwards where my builder had just pulled up the floor boards to below the house and my left leg slipped down and I broke my ankle both my Tabular and Fibular are broken down by my ankle.  I was sent by ambulance to hospital where I was for two weeks the first week waiting for the swelling to go down and one week later I was operated on where plates and and screws were inserted.  I now  have a plaster cast on my leg for two weeks and then on Thursday I have the cast removed and replaced with a fiberglass cast.  I'm not allowed to put any weight onto my leg for 6 weeks and then I can try and walk with a walking frame, currently I'm stuck in my master bedroom which is close to our ensuite.  As I'm not getting any younger I find it hard hopping around the house on my right leg and I'm so left handed and left leg dominant. 
My crafting room is down in our office where all my goodies are as well as my desktop computer and as I can't get down stairs at present I have to blog, read and watch TV,  hopefully I'll be back to creating by the end of April.  Wishing everyone a great weekend and happy crafting.

Hugs always Kathie
