Challenge 50 All Dressed Up

Hi guys! I am having a pretty sh*t time with my lower back pain so haven't been making cards as much as I would like to  - saw physio again yesterday and it has been decided that I need Facet Joint Injections again - til my appt comes thru I will get manual manipulation from him which may help relieve this pain.  My GP can give me no more pain relief unless I want to go down the Morphine route and I can't cope with that at the moment I am afraid (tho it is something I may have to think about in the future). If any of my lovely friends can suggest anything I can ask about I would be most grateful!  Currently I take Tramadol up to 4 times daily and Naproxen as and when necessary but I tend to stay away from it as it swells my legs so badly!  Vanity is a terrible thing I know!!!

Back to the main reason I am here and that is to show my DT card for the new challenge over at All Dressed Up Challenge 50 and as usual anything goes - well I decided to go with one of Wendy's Design Papers instead of an image this time and I have to say they print beautifully and are a joy to work with.   I used the Pink Paper pack currently at 90pence!!!  There are other packs available n the Etsy store so do pop along and have a look at them.

I am not 100% happy with this card but this is mainly due to my health issues at the moment sadly!

Do remember to pop over and join in the new challenge!!


  1. Wow what a beautiful card just using design papers, love the pink wit the black, and the cute owl :D

  7. Hi Sheila. Thank you for calling by and leaving a comment for me.
    So sorry to hear about your Back problems, it is something i suffer from too, but not as bad as you sound. Mine is a hip problem and I will need a replacement at sometime, but having lost over 2 stone in the last year that has helped alot. Take care, and super card for Mother's Day. Xx
