Smile - it's your birthday







Things always look better after a good nights sleep . I can't remember the last time I really cried but yesterday afternoon I was a mess . My ongoing hip and shoulder pain were quite bad ,I had all the symptoms of a cold coming on and to top it all a really bad migraine . Today the migraine has gone and the other things seem a bit more bearable .

Ok -onto my easel card -the camera image is from Birdie Brown -the grey check paper is Stampin Up and the grey spot paper is from Kaisercraft . I'm still debating if I should add some of the grey spot  paper onto the inside of those flaps ,I can't decide if it will make it look too dark . The little sentiment at the bottom says 'it's your birthday ' , sorry I haven't taken a clear pic of it.My card yesterday was for Jeanne  a friend over in SA, this card is for her husband Derek hence the monogram letter.

What a great style of easel card. Love that camera. So sorry you had such a bad day, I am sire I would have cried too. That is a lot of discomfort to bear. Take care and hope things are in the up.

Hi, Gail, an wonderful way to present a birthday card, and it matches the smile on your sweet face in your profile. While I am sorry to hear about your hip and shoulder pain, it is good to know your migraine is better today. Those bring me to my knees, so I admire your determination. Blowing Get Well Wishes your way for better days to come. hugs, de
