Get Well Soon at MAWTT

Hello again - this is my second post for today and this time it's to share my DT project for

and the theme this week has been picked by our lovely Shell


I almost feel I could send this to myself today following an appointment I had at the hospital yesterday. I have been having some pain in my left elbow - a bit like when you bang your funny bone but the pain is almost constant - for most of the time over the past 6-9 months I have been ignoring it but lately it has got worse and I have difficulty picking things up so I thought it best to get it checked out. Anyways it turns out I have a condition known as 'Golfer's Elbow' - to which I replied when the consultant told me "but I don't play  golf" - he laughed and said it's the same as Tennis Elbow but it affects the muscle on the opposite side of the elbow.
So to cut a long story short the treatment option he suggested was a steroid injection in the elbow - if I could let him do it because where he needed to inject is right where the pain is and it really is sooooooooo tender to touch - but I bit my lip, squeezed the nurse's hand and he injected my elbow - OOOOUUUCCCHHHH 
I cannot express the pain and today my whole arm feels like a sack of spuds is hanging from it :o(
and the pain is at least twice as bad as it was before the treatment - I really hope that doesn't last too long!!!
The next course of action if the steroid injections don't work could be surgery - so I am not looking forward to that at all :o(

Anyways enough rambling here's the card I may just send to myself lol!!!!!!

I have used an uber cute LOTV die cut - available here and what a bargain - 6 images for just £1.00
I used a Spellbinders Small Labels 1 re-cut mine.
The scrummy spring like DP's were a Digi downlaod by Michelle Coleman from Memory Makers 'Wild Sorbet' collection but the link doesn't seem to be available now - sorry :o(
The sentiment was a freebie with this month's HOTP Paper Pack from SC&P  and I thought it matched perfectly :o)

To finish I added a Spellbinders flower die cut topped with pearl brad, a few Memory Box leaves and some adhesive pearls.
Hope you like it :o)

Another gorgeous card hun, lovely cute image and love the pastel papers. Sorry to hear about your elbow. Mark has "tennis" elbow and has had two injections so far which have not worked and has been to see a physio and is due to now have a scan and then back to the physio over the next week. Trouble is with him plastering it constantly hurts .... hope you can get sorted soon. And the sack of spuds feeling is normal!! Hugs, Claire xx

I do like Debs... A lot actually! This is pretty spectacular my friend! Love the gorgeous soft colours, the fabby layers, super cute image and how you have re cut it - all superb in my eyes.
Poor you with the elbow, my husband had tennis elbow, his injection did work but he said the pain was the worst thing ever. Since then he's had housemaids knee and police mans heel and refused any more injections!
Hope you enjoyed your fish and chips

I remember having tennis elbow a couple of times & ended up having the injection every time. The pain does get worse but usually does settle down. Fingers crossed it does for you shug. Take care sweets.

This is so sweet! So sorry to hear about your elbow, ouch all right, fingers crossed that the one dose does the trick for you as surgery would be more painful and more hassle! Thank you and the MAWTT girls for having e on board the past 4 weeks. It has been a pleasure to craft and work along side you all, Thanks :)
