Chick, Chick, Chick, Chick Chicken.....

So this post must begin with yet another apology, I'm really sorry for taking so long between posts but at the moment my head just isn't in the game. Every time I sit at the table with a newly completed coloured image it is a matter of minutes before my back starts to give me major grief. As Confucius once said 'With great pain comes great distraction' and that is just how I feel when it starts, my mind begins to wander and designing becomes near impossible. On the rare occasion it hasn't hurt I have managed to upload some (hopefully) half decent designs to inspire you with!
I must also welcome to my newest Follower: Deborah, she has a very interesting blog over at Scrappy Beads, check her out sometime, I think you will like her style a lot.
Back to the back and tomorrow I am due to see my Specialist up at Lincoln Pain Clinic where he will spend thirty minutes sticking extremely long needles into my spine, the outcome being a few months without as much pain. If you imagine living with the pain being a nine/ten for most days, after the injection it should be a four/five for a few months (it normally lasts between four and five months if I'm lucky!). I am meant to have the jab every six months or so but this time it has taken a year and a half so I am fully aware of the troubles the NHS are facing, especially from an end-user point of view.
This week's card is a little late for Easter but I hadn't used the stamp since buying it and couldn't resist giving her a go. I hope you like the finished product.
I will be back soon - honest!!
Big hugs 'n stuff,


  1. Your card is beautiful, Andy! I love the colors and diecuts and of course, the darling image! Sorry you are having so much pain. Hope the shots help, if only for awhile before you get the next ones. I had 3 epidural blocks in my lower spine last year and now I am on to back surgery next month. I am hoping for more lasting results with that. Take care!

  2. Simply want to say your article is as surprising. The clarity to your publish is simply excellent and i could assume you are a professional on this subject. Fine along with your permission allow me to grasp your feed to stay updated with drawing close post. Thank you 1,000,000 and please carry on the gratifying work.
