Thinking Of You


Thank you for all your kind / giggle messages about my disastrous Friday - fortunately my bruise is going down. When i found out i had a dairy allergy, i immediately stopped eating and drinking all dairy - but was still getting really bad migraines and i couldn't work out why ?, then i read the contents of my drugs and found they all contained 'Lactose', so after a bit of a battle, they have agreed to write me a prescription for the 'Folic Acid Liquid' today (they didn't like it, as it's apparently expensive, but i only take 5mg a week though), so hopefully my migraines will improve, yipee.

Today's stamp is very old in fact 1996 and it's number is 579K - and although they have now produced it as a slapstick version - they made it missing the window frame and bird ?? and to be honest, i still prefer the wooden version.  The papers are My Mind's Eye - 'Fine And Dandy / Tickled Pink', Flowers - 'Wild Orchid Craft', Ribbon and Buttons - 'The Ribbon Girls', Sentiment - 'LOTV', Punched Edge - MS - 'Traditional Scallop'.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Sweet Stampin'  - where the Challenge is 'Buttons, Bows And Polka Dots'

Oldie But A Goodie - where the Challenge is 'Make It Girly' - my oldie is the stamp and papers

I picked the flag paper for the polka dots on it

You have to bully them sometimes Sam, they hate dishing out some medications even if they are better for us. Can sympathise as I am lactose intolerant as well, but unfortunately staying away from that doesn't cure my migraines, I apparently need to shift the hormones !

Love this PB stamp, probably more than the slapstick version and you have made such a pretty springlike card with it.

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Pretty Little Ribbons and Allsorts challenges.
