My Time To Craft 'Buttons & Bows' Challenge

Good morning again, it seems like ages since I was last here yet it is only a week ago excluding of course the post below this one that went live this morning also. If you are looking for my Silhouette Challenges post you will find it HERE.

Ok so this week at My Time To Craft we are challenged to use 'Buttons & Bows' you must use at least 3 buttons and 1 bow. 

For my card this week I never used my Silhouette shock horror lol, that would be because I have been having problems with a virus on my computer which was remove but then the software for my Silhouette kept interfering with everything else. I hope it has finally been fixed now as I am using it and nothing is crashing as I type so fingers crossed.

So I took a sheet of First Edition's Isabelle designer paper and gave it a little inking around the edge with Ranger Spun Sugar Distress Ink, I then stamped this Inkadinkado Noteworthy stamp onto white stamping card stock and cut out using a Spellbinder's Nestabilities die. After embossing and while still in the die I inked with the same ink as before. Mounted onto some Bazzill card stock and added my 3 buttons and 2 bows, my bows as you can see went a little skew whiff because I struggled to hold the needle and stitch them together.  All links are below in the supplies list.

Following on from my hospital appointment last Saturday I now have to have another MRI scan, an EMG or nerve test, several blood tests and see a new pain consultant before returning to the neurologist for all the results. There was me thinking I would go along last Saturday and he would tell me my lack of feeling in my fingers was caused by a trapped nerve in my back oh no, no such luck, he wants all these tests done first. Not looking forward to the nerve test as they apparently pass small electrical currents through your hands and feet and my right foot has had hypersensitivity since my last operation in 2008. Plenty of time to not think about it as have to await an appointment and then who knows who long it will be before I get seen!
