time for another challenge

oh have i had a day today
i wanted to make 2 cards not a lot to ask is it.
one for the promaker challenge and one for the sugar nellie well i finished the promarker challenge which needed use of promarkers and also punches and tied it in with another LOTV challenge at crafty mess which needed a lotv image which i have loads and also punches so they tied in really nicely

but as for the sugar nellie card well it's been just a nightmare don't know why it just won't come together even had a sketch to follow, nearly put it in the bin but couldn't as my back is so bad today that there is no way i could have started from the beginning again
oh god i feel so grumpy today think its just the pain it frustrates me when i want to sit and work and the pain gets so bad that i just have to lie down and then the painkillers cloud my thinking which then affects my mojo just not on is it
right had a good moan going to upload the first card as the SN is still sitting half done on my desk hopefully i will get some done tomorrow depends on the back situation i guess
i want to go out on wed as my son is training in silver service at the college and is serving in the main restaurant so have booked a table with my mate so we can see him at his work. i really want to go but will have to rest tomorrow to settle my back spasm as if i need to drive on wed i will have to lower my painkillers so i am compos mentis but what with driving and then sitting for the meal i am going to be in agony i know but it will be worth it, shame my friend can't drive but she can't so i have to.
oh i am a moaner today aren't i so sorry I'm sure you don't want to hear this lot just getting it off my chest i guess
right back to the cardmaking
i have uploaded the PROMARKER / LOTV challenge  at the crafty mess site now and hopefully you might see the SN one tomorrow if i manage it in the morning if not i will just give it a miss this time and start planning my CCM one for next week as that is more important as i am on the DT
bye for now gill x

Hi there. I agree with Nessy in the comment before, a really soft & delicate card. Rather feminine. Hope you feel better soon. Thanks for joining us at I ♥ Promarkers.

Such a sweet and delicate creation. I love those papers they give is such a soft feel.

I am with you on the back pain front, or should that be back, lol. I leaned forward to move something and POP bliddy back went and now I am sitting like Quasimodo to try and ease the pain. I wouldn't mind but all I did was lean! Grrrrrr
