Yes i am back ..just for this week , i have not been creating cards for a few months ... but since the New Year making Angels ( see at bottom of the page)
Above is a photo taken of my brother and his wife, the last photograph i have before my brother`s life changing accident on the 24th May 2014 - yes it 252 days, and he is making a very slow , but determind recovery...and has just been moved to a new subcute home, where physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, cognitive rehabilitation therapy, and occupational therapy can start on his rehabilitation..on getting him eating ,walking and for his traumatic brain injury...

used papermania papers, saturated canary image , coloured with promarkers and spectrum noirs, nestabilities circle and heart dies, magnolia heart swirl die,tim holtz stamps, finished with stickles glitter and glossy accents.
Now to explain why have been making ANGELS from glass beads :~
below is the website (sansoxygen.com) set up by my brothers wife and friends , keeping an update on my brothers progress and a place for friends to donate to the fund ... nothing is free in America , and as my brother was working free lance as a font designer and had been living in the country for less than two years,and was the major bread winner, my sister-in-law has no income coming in or help from the state, so is relying on family and friends ...who have been amazingly supportive.
so, here i am making glass Angels , to send to people who have kindly donated through me on my facebook page (see below)..here are a few i have made...
... and some small window charms, as well as larger ones , wine glass charms ... well if nothing else it is giving me therapy, making them..they can be found here...
xx enjoy your weekend xx
