Maori girl Tilda.

Hi friends!
First of all I have an update from my disasterous failed biopsy. I saw my specialist yesterday and I have to wait until the end of October and have another CT scan. This is to see how much the tumor has grown or even if it has grown more. Then he said they would operate. In the meantime I have to lose weight. I'm not hugely overweight but he said that it is a dangerous operation and it would be worse if I don't lose weight. After becoming anerexic when I had the kidney cancer I just loved the taste of food when I got better. So now I have to lose the excess. Talk about a see saw ride. At least I don't have to suffer another biopsy. I was so happy about that. Usually they need to know what sort of cancer it is before they operate. It is either a lung cancer or a metastatic cancer (secondary kidney cancer). I am believing for a benign tumor although that is not likely.

I still have a little air in my lung but he said that would come right by itself. Thank goodness for that because I didn't want another tube in my back. 

On to my card....
This card is for my nephews girlfriend who happens to be a lovely Maori girl from New Zealand. I tried to make Tilda's skin dark. I probably need a little practice with the skin tone. The purple flowers I made and the white ones I brought.
I have colored Tilda with Promarkers.

The color is not quite right on this card as I quickly took it at night before I gave it to Daina.

The picture of the flowers are the right color.
