For a poorly person....

Hi Peeps

Just a quickie from me today... I bought this MFT Die-namics Umbrella die at the Harrogate show... (yes, I'm slowly working my way through the new stash!)   I'd seen a card using the die on Pinterest, so decided to try my own design and I'm quite please with the result (though I say so myself...)

I've just used a scalloped edge Nestie (not sure what it's called) for the card base - it's only tiny - 4" x 4" at most.  Then bazzil cardstock which I've put through the swiss dots embossing folder - with the corners rounded.  I did a sentiment on the PC, which I punched with a Stampin Up punch.  A little bow and a pearl at the top finished it off.  As my favourite little creature on the TV ads would say.......  Simples!!!

I still have a hottie bottle not too far away from me all the time at the mo... I'm getting really fed up of my bad back/sciatica or whatever it is now...  not been to the doc about it as I've had a back problem on and off for years... but I was at the docs yesterday for a routine blood test and mentioned it.  She's sending me for an MRI to find out what's actually happening with my back.....  so that'll be good - at least I'll know if it's from the disc problem I had originally, or whether it's sciatica or arthritis or whatever.

Have a good weekend, whatever you're up to!

Big hugs

    Take care

  20. Love the card Christine. It's so cute but conveys the thought so well. There are a lot of bad backs about at the minute - no fun is it? I hope you get some relief soon and that the medics can get a proper diagnosis and help you.

  21. Hi Christine, This is such a sweet card! I would so love an umbrella like this :-)

    Sorry to hear you are still suffering with your back ... hopefully the MRI will help you get a diagnosis.

  22. Love this Christine! Love the floral umbrella and it's just perfect with the sentiment.

    I hope the MRI helps to get some sort of diagnosis for you and you'll soon be pain free.

  23. This is stunning Christine!
    You know I love the simpler style of cards (though I do find them tricky little buggers to make myself!)
    This is just perfect :)

    I hope you feel better soon, and the scan should get to the bottom of it.

    Big hugs
