A couple of note cards





Although I did manage to make a couple of note cards today, nothing went as planned! After various layouts and color combinations, I ended up with two simple cards. I hate it when I can't bring my ideas to "life".
Due to my on-going issues with pinched nerves in my neck and back,tomorrow I'm scheduled for a pain management session. Usually after a pain management session,I feel quite terrible for a few hours. Beside the constant pain issues, I'm OK!! My doctor just wants me to try the pain management treatments for a while. So.......I will not post anything else until Wednesday. Thank you all for stopping by and I will see you all Wednesday!


Note card #1 stamp Pink Cat Studio, sentiment SU, cardstock and DP from my stash, ink Adirondack Pitch Black, Nestabilities sm. rectangle dies, Copic markers, mini-button brads and flowers from TAC

Note card #2 stamp High Hopes Rubber Stamps, cardstock Papertrey Ink and scrap stash, Nestabilities sm. oval dies, inks Adirondack Pitch Black and Copic Markers ,Cuttlebug polka-dot embossing folder, mini gold brads, extra fine glitter and ribbon from my stash

Hi Malieta!

Well, I think your cards are BEAUTIFUL! They're not simple at all! Love that kitty on your first card. . .such a cute image. Your second card is just so cute . . .I really love the yellow color and embossed background.

Hope you find a way to manage the pain in your neck. Ugggh! I know how it feels. . .I had a pinched nerve at one time for over 6 months and it was horrible. I woke up every morning groaning and moaning!! Good luck with the doctor!!

Oh! You poor thing! I will keep your pain in my prayers... what a hard thing to deal with!!!

On the upside, it hasn't affected your cardmaking... These are too cute!

We are quite a pair aren't we Risa. At least you are getting some pain management. I suppose that's what the spine center is going to be looking into for me this time around.

Anywho, I just have to tell you how sweet your little flip flop card is. My favorite colors to boot! I can hardly wait to get those summer shoes out of the closet and put them to good use.

I love the flip flops!! I hope you are able to manage the pain. I know there are so many people with physical pains - I feel very fortunate that I'm not dealing with back pain - I've heard that's one of the worst things to have! Hugs and healing kisses to you, Mali!
