Three Techniques

I very special friend spent the morning with me and brought the "kit" to     do the watercolor shimmering mist technique on these flowers ,
then she revisited the out of the frame technique which I had forgotten

Then I received a card from my British pen pal and she had used the water color on stamp for her background which I used here  not much showing but I like it and will  do it again

One for You One for ME

HELLO my blogger friends
I made the above card for you
For those who have been asking what set me back I will explain here
Four years ago I broke my left leg That left me walking with a brace
Two years ago I spiral  broke my right leg
Both legs had rods
This year the left leg got infected and a scare went up if the infection is in the bone
 I could loose the leg
A very fast surgery was set up
 There is no infection in the bone but the rod was removed leaving holes where the screws were in the bone
Now we are being super cautious that the infection doesn't go to the holes and/or I break that weak bone
I am in the medical boot and see the doctor in two weeks ...
I am very grateful to be on my TWO  feet
The card below I made for me 
I have received many lovely cards and appreciate all of them both handmade
 and store bought  but this one I made for myself
I am mending and have good spirit
Love you all
