What a day

I am so tired today and it feels like I have done, well, nothing! LoL And I really have not. This day was set to go back to the gym and try to figure out how I will deal with my work outs as I get so much pain in my back whatever I do, hard work out, light one, rowing, walking. You name it and I pain it! So after a week without doing nothing that would give my back even a little chance of be painful has been avoided the last week and a half. And today, time to rock on again. It went fairly good but I am so tired. It took the whole day just to go there, do the work out, get a little massage of the chair they have at the gym and then home to eat. Totally drained for energy again. However, totally love how the work out went to day even if it was a short and little one. I have pain now, but only muscle soreness, and just a little touch of pain around my sensitive part of the back (the thoracic spine where I have both a herniated disc and displacement between two vertebrae) just in line of each other. But the main thing is that it isn't how it was two weeks ago. Now I just wait and see what will happen tomorrow with my oh so lovely back. :) Keep your fingers crossed that nothing major will happen. I so miss my hard work outs and want them back!

A week ago or something like that I had a pirate card to show here and now it's time again. The same stamp from Lili of the Valley but this time paired up with some designer papers in red and blue from Magnolia. How well they work for this kind of cards! I have so much dp hoarded that I have told myself that this year no more designer papers will be bought if they are not for boys card. It's a lack of those papers around here and I have given me the go ahead to buy Swedish brands of designer papers. Let's see how that will work out.
So here comes my last Pirate card for a while. Coloured with my Letraset family in one of my favourite colour combos. Red, white and blue. So fresh for some reason. A star lace die from Magnolia is used to take up the stars from the blue paper. A "net" ribbon to have something to stuck the charm into and to pick up on the sea theme. Some card candy in two of the corners and a sentiment saying "Happy Birthday" in Swedish and my card was all done. The little guy who got it loved it and it makes it so worth doing these cards even for the kids.
