Oh...the joys

Oh the joys of being self employed and working from home. Woke up this morning with a stiff neck...it's an old age thing..a trapped nerve which has bugged me on and off for years probably caused by my manic production in the card making department yesterday. But there are orders to complete and no boss to say...."you look awful..just go home to bed"...so must soldier on as they say.
These are some of the double sided papers from that fab deal from Costco. They are such good quality..really a cardstock with a white core as well and come in colour families which is great for getting that co-ordinated look. This is one sheet using both sides and the shirt actually looks suede. Cut out the wording using Pink Petticoat Monograms CD, added some copper brads. The sentiment topper is from "Now That's Funky" CD from Funky Hand.
























This card was made using Dovecraft Masculine Papers and Embellishments, Lime Green Bazzill cardstock and Doodlebug All Mixed Up Rub-ons. It is actually much lighter but the old camera is having an off day a bit like myself. All done for the day am off to have a soak in a nice hot bath and try and sort my neck out for tonight...off to join my sister and some of her friends for an Italian meal, no doubt a glass or two of wine and a good old natter.
