and an mps blog hop and health update.
i went yesterday to the reuma doctor for the first time and she was very nice. she will be examining some tests i have had done, but all it seems to point out to a bad flare up of my condition. i am back on one of my old medicine. i thought that medicine was not really working, but she says none of them will take completely my pain away--mo magic wand here either. :(  it is not the first time i hear that. 
 this is a condition i have to live with for the rest of my life and it will flare up for the rest on my life too. i have to go for a blood test for lupus. i never had that test done tough, let's see.  i have had every other therapy, massages, injections, rx that has shred my stomach and more... and nothing really works. oh well...put my 
"big girl smile on again", and keep forward. that is all i can do :)
i feel much better and last night i was able to sleep the whole night. i still have my son's cold and now my lower back pain has moved to my middle back, but i should be back to "normal" soon.
 my mps blog hop winner will be announced sometime tomorrow th, jan. 20.

now onto a card i made the other day with a new set of clears stamp from my pink stamper, robyn.

Happy Everything
5 x 4
I needed to think happy these days and this sent
image got my mind in gear.:P
made with kraft cardstock and K&Co embellishments.
i really liked how clean the sentiment came out. i used a colorbox ink for it, very nice.
if you would like to see more of this Happiest Moments set,  
 where she has lots more to choose from too:)

i think it came out very pretty.


I also wanted to show you a pic of the ice storm we just had. if look a bit closer you can see the ice shining on top of the snow that we already had.
  this is it for now,
i will be back tomorrow with a winner for the blog hop.
hugs to all and thanks again for being there to hear me vent ;p


  1. oh I feel bad for you, I to know how it feels just to keep pushing yourself. Fiburmyagia is a terrible disease to have, no cure, just pain some days worse then others, hang in there girlfriend, you have been given a special gift of talent and dont let no pain take it from you. love you hugs your card is beautiful.

  2. Thanks for the update - stay inside - that ice looks scary!!!

    Card is perfect -- As Usual!

  3. I hope you are feeling better soon. Chronic pain is awful, I've only had the briefest experience (a couple of weeks) and it wasn't anything I'd wish on anyone.

    Love the card though. TFS :D

  4. I am so sorry that you are going through this. You have been really strong and putting on a great face for us all. I'm sorry that you are in so much pain. Your project is great as always. Stay warm!

    Love you!

  5. Hope your doing better soon :) Hang in there hun :) Think good thoughts and try to keep your mind of your pain as much as possible.
    Stay warm too, the ice sure looks frightful out there. hope you dont have to go anywhere today, if so pls be safe :) Hugs G

  6. I hope you feel better soon..I have been thinking about you. Sending lots of hugs and prayers your way :)...Your card is so cute. TFS

    Hugs, Sheena

  7. hoping you feel better soon! hugs n luvs!

    that pic is!!! i think we're in for something similar this weekend too!

  8. Oh Agnes, I hope you start feeling better soon. Maybe going back on that med will help. I know how terrible it is to live in pain, I feel for you. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

  9. Agnes, I love your card (as I do all of them). However, more important, I'm glad you're feeling better (or so you say). But I do hope being re-prescribed your medications has you feeling much-much better soon!!!

    I admire you girlfriend for your "dang-with-it-all, I'm going to keep on going" attitude and personality!!!

    Love ya!
