What a weekend I have had. Been so poorly with chest pains - again! I can only get an appointment on Wednesday. I so need some strong painkillers right now. Getting so bad I can barely cope. I have been in hospital with this pain a few months ago. They say my chest wall muscles are cramping up but couldn't give me the cause of this. I have been under some stress but even when I am not worrying about any thing they happen. Its the worst pain I have ever experienced, wouldnt wish it on anyone.
So in between the cramps and the usually house hold chores ( yes, Tammy gets very little help ) I managed to pull off a card. Though it as taken me 3 days to finish. A little at a time but I am so pleased with the result.
Photo's are not the best. Even took the card outside. It's so cloudy today.
I got the inspiration for this card from Tabby Crafts. Such a talented card maker....I love everything she designs. I would love just half of her talent. Anyway....one day last week she made a criss cross card. Stunning it was, do pop over and take a peek. I have never made one of theses and have seen them about so much in blogland. So just had to give it a go.
I do have one problem with it though......the card inside doesnt fit all the way in. I must have embellished it too much. LOL
Not a problem though as its for my Daughter's friend and she won't know the difference. Only you and I know. It fits snug in my 8 x 8 boxes I purchased.....an happy accident!
Papers are from DCWV - Linen Closet....so so lush! My all time favourite. I must stock up again as I am running rather low. Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts....another MUST have. Link is on my side bar. Gorguss Hanglar stamp - Kids with Attitude. I was so excited to have managed to get my hands on these. I have been trying for months and alway missed out, never there quick enough. I was dancing a round my craft den for ages when they arrived - ok, I am sad but I am sure you have all done the same when something new arrives.
I am going to enter this card in the Just Magnolia Challenge - Bev as done a sketch for us. Don't often like sketches but pulled this one off rather well.
I am off now to have a snack.....havent eaten much over the weekend so feel rather hungry today.
Take care everyone. Thank you for taking a peek at my blog, do pop by again.
