Morning! I know second time this week and it's only Wednesday. Well, to be honest this will probably be my last entry this week. But I am glad I could do these two. Still feeling crappy. It's like someone is pulling my head from my back in a rubberband and just let it go and I have a bouncing head. Only 11 more days before I meet my new doc. Hope he is a wizard, or she. Going to a new place and have no clue of who I am going to see. A shot in the dark how to speak but it can't be worse than before. Ok, enough about this. It's just feels good to get it all out cause it's so frustrating!

The gift voucher
We have a new challenge up for you over at the Paper Shelter today and the theme is "Lace and Pearls". You have to use both on your card otherwise it won't be in the draw. As always we have a gift voucher worth $30 up for grabs if you play with a TPS product. Playing with another brand gives you the chance of winning three digis of your choice.

My card then, well since my arms doesn't work so well at this moment I used an image I coloured earlier this summer for another challenge but didn't manage to finish it. It's a lovely image coloured with my letraset family. I like the idea of combining the tougher the subject with the motorcycle along with lace and pearls.

I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly as I needed some inspiration to get going. This card is also raised from the base with few layers. Designer papers are from Papermania and are called happy days.

This will be edited later on today as I have an appointment early this morning, didn't get my project totally done as my arms gave in... grrr never finishing anything lately. So no photo yet... On top of that I burned my arm earlier. Don't cook, anything when you can't really feel your hands. It's all covered in ice and "silver salva" (special lotion for horses and pets, all natural and super effective on any wounds) and hopefully it will be fine, in a week or two. LoL Lesson learned!

Edited: Didn't get away as planed, sick kid and had to stay at home instead. Actually didn't mind even if I feel sorry for Philip. Was good not having to go on the bus as they are fixing up the roads in town at the moment, and the busses are late and it all that comes with it. If he feel up to it later I will sit down with him and fix his summer memory for pre school. Have not been able to do that yet. But I actually feel a tiny bit better today, hope it's a good sign and that I can keep cool and don't overdo anything. Keep your fingers crossed!

Love n hugs
