Saw a very nice specialist yesterday about my back and he explained that the fracture has healed but unfortunately one of my vertebrae is compressed which is what cause the pain at times. I have some exercises to do and in time the pain should get less and the compression will ease but it will never fully recover. I am so relieved that I don't have to have surgery. Thanks for all your good wishes.
When I went to the NEC I was so disappointed that Craftwork Cards did not have a stand as these shaped cards and the Christmas Post papers were on my wish list (along with a lot of other things). I found the card blanks on Little Claire's stand and about an hour before I left spotted a Christmas Post pack with not only the gorgeous papers, but flowers and tags and candi. I adore this pack and will be using it a lot, the vintage look is fabulous and goes so well with my new Inkylicious stamp which I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa onto some new linen card I bought at the NEC. Everything else is from the pack except the bow which also came from the show.
