Bad luck

Well it seems I have been hit with a bit of bad luck 10 weeks before I get married - a slipped disk !
I have had a bit of a bad back for around 18 months, suddenly a few weeks ago I got really bad pains in my buttock & leg, pins and needles which I thought would pass. When I couldn't stand it anymore I went to the Docs, and in 2 weeks I had an MRI and my results which were a slipped disk. Not much they can do ! Not the best news for my upcoming wedding and then my honeymoon to Florida ! Oh well it could be worse, 
It has though affected my ability to sit crafting, i have been trying to sit & do quick cards. And heres one of them using clearly besotted stamps again.

Hope you like it. Have a wonderful weekend, thanks for looking xxx


  1. Beautiful card Elaine :) Hope it is the end of your bad luck and you soon get some relief.

  2. Oh no, so sorry to hear about your back. You need to nurture it and just it easy. Only lying down and standing with no long spells of sitting xxx. Love your CAS star card.
