Just to say 'Hello'

A really 'simples' card today:

I used:

- 4.5" x 4.5" square white card stock

- Penny Black Stickerooo and sentiment from the 'Flower Festival' sheet

- green 'crackle backing paper design' from Pink Paisley's 'Butterfly Garden Collection'

- a snippet of SU's 'Old Olive' card

Told you it was simple - job done, and not easy whilst crawling round on the floor wiv me back in spasm - I neeeeeed a reeeeally strong corset up to me armpits as it's a muscle problem, which is helped when I clutch the area whilst getting up and sitting down. Ha, wouldn't you know, an idiot a van driver parked really close to me at the supermarket today when I ran hobbled out to post letters :( And I'd picked a spot away from other idiots parkers. It was a bit like getting a winkle back into its shell! Am shouting for England right now!! 



  1. Wot are we like eh! Hope yer not in too much pain . Yer welcome to some of me painkillers! Super snickeroos card .
    Love those colours. Hugs Mrs A.

  2. Very pretty card Di, love green and blue together. Hope you feel better soon :) Cathy

  3. A beautiful card Di, with soft gentle colours and a brilliant sentiment. Hope you are feeling better.

  4. It is a wonderful card...amazing that you were able to craft with your back in spasm.
    Can you try going for a deep tissue massage? Sometimes that will release a muscle knot...back troubles are not pretty are they...

    Or you could just try the recliner, a good glass of wine and doing NOTHING till it improves...I think I like that option the best...
    Maybe Len could get you a little could ring it for a cuppa every now and again!

  5. Lovely card...amazing with the stickers you do! So sorry to hear about the back problems. No fun, and how did you even manage to craft? Hope the shouting will help...yes, clutching affected areas, (Sometimes a few blue words) can often ease the tension! Take care, rest up, and have a good wkend. TFS

  6. Pretty card! Personally I swear by a chiropractor for back troubles. Empathise with you about the parkers too!!

  7. Awww l do feel for you Di having back problems is not very pleasant......back to your card which is stunning hope you have a speedy recovery and enjoy your weekend take care xx

  8. Simple and effective Di.And a good match of colour between the stickeroo and BP. Hope the back pain eases soon. take care. Kate xx

  9. Very pretty card there Miss Di.
    Sooo sorry to hear you have a poorly back. Do you think you caught it from Mrs A? Did she slip you any of her painkillers?

  10. Congrats on even having the stamina to MAKE a card when your back is in spasm and pain.

    You're my hero . . . or should that be heroine? Prolly the latter!

    GREAT card too. You make such good use of your Stickeroos xxx

  11. Ooh oooh ooh Di - I know how you feel, my back does the same thing and why are all the (idiots) silly people around just at the same time as you need the space!!! Grrr. Anyway I do hope you feel better soon!

    I love this card - it really is sweet - and I such a great shade of green as well.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  12. You've had some of the most amazing stickers, Di! This is beautiful! Looks like forget-me-nots! I always loved those tiny beauties!
