Birds on a fence!

So glad to be here again and typing but it's sheer will power! I have been so sick that I thought I could never write on my blog again. I couldn't hold a drop of water and the odor-sensitivity was totally out of proportion. I find it difficult to eat and to drink, but I'm fed up of doing nothing but stare and wait until its gone. I was given an anti-nausea pill that cost more than 50 euros (The State pays everything 100 percent) which didn't help me either so I just have to get through it knowing that I will see good times again. I have at least eaten one apple today.  Thank you to continue to pray as I feel hope when I can count on the Lord.

This is what I wanted to share today, I made it Tuesday already after I received a little package from Hellemor. Can you see the little crochet hearts - aren't they beautiful. The card she sent me which is here underneath, just melted my heart and I so wanted to case it. I couldn't get it as nice as hers because I don't have all the stamps she used but I sure enjoyed having her card as a reference. Hellemor thank you so much!

We have both used distress inks. I am a real fan of Helle's collage cards.

And here they are together, chirping to each other!

HOPE to be back soon!! So glad you make me feel connected to the world!

  3. Dear Jacqueline, I'm so sorry to hear how bad you're feeling......but it will pass, and I guess you just have to endure it. Does it help to envision that a war is going on inside you, and the medicine is winning! I'm sending lots of hugs to you from me.

    These cards are wonderful! I love Helle's cards, too. So glad that you were up to making your lovely one. The crocheted hearts are so sweet.

  9. Oh Jacqueline, I am so sorry you are feeling so dreadful! Like everything I guess, "this too shall pass", easier said when I am not the one feeling like you do! But I go with Lin's comment! Hang in there. All my love and thoughts and prayers are with you! I am so in love with your version of Helle's card, so totally beautiful and surreal really!

  10. Both of your cards are absolutely gorgeous, love those little birdies and crocheted hearts! You brave girl, despite being so sick you're still able to get some crafting done and such fabulous crafting, too! Take care, Ira x

  11. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous cards today, Jacqueline! You and Helle make a great collaborative team. Such lovely collage cards you've both created. And those sweet little hearts are just the best!
    Praying God's love and peace will bring you comfort on this difficult journey.
    sending you prayers and hugs and lots of love, sweet friend!

  12. Nausea really is the worst..... my heart goes out to you.
    I can see why you love Hellemor's card, it's truly beautiful. You've done quite a job youself casing it!

  13. Both of these cards are absolutely gorgeous and so peaceful ... I am so sorry you are feeling sick ... my heart goes out to you ... will keep you in my prayers ...

  15. Beide kaarten zijn prachtig!

  16. Oh wow! both these cards are so beautiful. Think of all our prayers as little butterflies, fluttering all around you. There would be so many. Feel better soon.

  17. I am so sorry that you are feeling so very sick due to the chemo. I hope you will feel a bit better soon.
    I am impressed that you are still creating. I know; card making can be a distraction and it can set your mind in another direction for a few hours. And I am blown away by the beauty of your card. Hellemors'card is stunning too.

    Thinking of you; take care...

  18. Two really beautiful cards Jacqueline. So sorry you are feeling so ill, hope it soon passes. God Bless

  19. It is good to have an end to journey toward;
    But it is the Journey that matters in the end.
    I saw these words and thought of you Jacqueline.
    I can only hope the Nausea passes quickly, try and think thoughts that make you Happy,it is unfortunate that the treatment is so harsh to obtain a cure!.
    Beautiful cards and I love the little hearts.

  20. Jacqueline , your card is so sensitive ... it's one of the most precious cards I've ever seen... Helemore's card is so very beautiful too! Those little crocheted hearts are just so sweet and adorable! I am so sad that you are having a difficult time right now. My thoughts and prayers are with you every day. I pray that God holds you close to his heart and keeps you strong. sending you love and hugs, Susanne

  21. What beautiful cards that were sent to you! I like the hearts very much!
    As always, I continue to pray and am sending you a big hug!

  22. What a beautiful take on the gorgeous card you got from Hellemor... sorry to hear that you are suffering nausea. Praying it improves for you my friend...

  23. Beide kaartjes zijn schitterend.
    Hopelijk ben je weer wat beter na het weekend.
    Ik denk aan je!!

  24. Dearest Jacqueline, so sorry to hear you are having a bad time this will all things do, good or bad....Your cards have been exceptionnally beautiful lately, a certain sensitivity...and this one is no exeption, such a beauty...they are so cute together chirping and hugs...and courage..xoxooxoxoxooxoxoxooxoxox

  25. I am so sorry that you are so ill from the treatments! I'm hopeful that it will be better soon. Meanwhile...your card is absolutely lovely---definitely not something one would expect from someone who feels so ill.

  26. You ladies are so talented! Both cards are just lovely. Those little crocheted hearts are the perfect embellishment, I love creating them too!

    You are in my thoughts and prayers. God is at your side and we are all right behind you.
