Weight Loss

Well it's been a while since I wrote about my diabetes. I had the clinic on Tuesday and I am glad to report that I lost another 2.3 kilos so all in all I have lost 2st 6lbs in weight which I am really pleased about. Unfortunately, my blood sugars are still not under control and am now taking the last step of upping my dosage of metaformin to 6 x 500mg a day on top of my injections and all the other pills I have to take. I really don't know what else to do as I have tried all the things the diabetic nurse has suggested and nothing seems to take the blood sugars down. This morning was one of the best readings at 13.2 which is still very high. If this doesn't work then when I see the specialist in June she might say I have to go onto insulin which is the very last thing I want. Anyway, will cross that bridge when it happens.

Meantime I have used one of my stash cards that I made last year added a few finishing touches and an insert for our cousins 87th birthday on Saturday. I hope it will cheer her up as she is now residing in a home down in Surrey.

60th Birthday

I wanted to make this a special card for a friend's 60th but when it came down to it I just didn't have the time or mojo to do it. I used a lovely thick leather like card stock and printed the picture of the pansies onto it. I then highlighted the black of the pansies with glossy accents and added some glamour dust to the wings of the bee and jewels for the eyes. Finished off with some ribbon for effect. I do hope she will like it.
