#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Artfully Aware with Stampin’ Blends
It’s time for our monthly All Stars Blog Hop and today, I have a card that has a personal meaning behind it for me.
Not long ago, I received the results from an XRay on my knee, and have been told I have moderate severe osteoarthritis and will need a knee replacement sooner rather than later.
Mum, when I told her, immediately went into support mode and I know that I will be able to count on her.
So this card is us – me, with my reddy brown hair and a grey top, resting on my Mum with her golden blonde hair.
I took inspiration from the catalogue as it didn’t feel that my fussy cut ‘us’ was right just there on the card, so I stamped the (totally appropriate!) lean on me in 3 generations to get the different shades.
I’m not worried about a knee replacement, thank goodness we live in times of modern medicine, but i was rather shocked to learn that at just 45 years old, this was on the imminent cards for me. Fortunately a 2nd opinion has said that they want to put it off for a good 5 years yet, but it was still a shock and I’m still in pain daily, but no major surgery yet!
So my personal card is shared here for you, perhaps you’ll take a little inspiration too.
Oh and don’t forget to hop around the rest of the team.
