25 January 2009


Hi all! I've actually managed to get some crafting done - I've made a few for the Poppicrafts DT and a few for myself to use. My oldest friend and I were both 40 last year, but neither of us managed to celebrate it, so we've decided that we'll have a joint bash at the end of March (before one of us turns 41!) - so I'm making the invitations....

My next-door-neighbour celebrated her birthday this weekend so I made this. It's an unashamedly CASE-ing of one of Liz's cards, over at Pink Petticoat. But I love her designs and this colour combination (pink/mocha) so I thought I'd nick it. I don't know if you noticed, but I've used Christmas Rose for the image cos my neighbour is pregnant and it works perfectly for this occasion - but I've edited the image slightly so she's holding a cake instead of a Christmas pudding (hope you don't mind, Liz!).
The downside to all this crafting is that my body is seriously complaining. This trapped nerve is being very stubborn and I had to resort to the morphine tablets again - boo! I still can't turn my head to the side very well and the pain is often keeping me awake at night, but I had to get these things made!
So, back on the morphine again today and finishing off some invitations if I can. Hugs xxxxx

Hi Debs,
Absolutely love this card, fab colour combo and it's great what you've done with this gorgeous image. Don't overdo it on the invitations you have to rest that trapped nerve. We need you all better for the party or there'll be no boogying for you girl..!!
Big Hugs (but gently so's not to hurt you!)
love Tracey x

Gorgeous card Debs - love the layout you've used and that lace is gorgeous.
Have you had traction? It worked for me when I had a trapped nerve after an accident some years ago.

What a beautiful card. I love the pink and brown, they work really well together. The lace is very elegant!
