Clean and Simple Monday - Twine

The SplitcoastStampers CAS Challenge (CAS179) is Twine!  Time to let all that colorful string you've been hoarding out to play.

I've used a sentiment from Rubbernecker Stamps and colorful May Arts twine.

I'm also entering this into the Less is More One Layer challenge Week 76 and using 3 of something on your card.  I used a bit more twine but 3 blingy things and 3 felt flowers.

Almost forgot to add this month's candy!  You followers know what to do.  Just remember to comment on this post.  I'll draw at the end of the month.


Stamps - Rubbernecker
Ink - Kalidescope Calypso
Paper - Papertrey Ink
Other - May Arts Twine; dollar store bling pack; foam tape

Thinking of you

It's been a rough few days lately as I've had some unexpected symptoms from a cortisone shot I got on Thursday.  Seems the ortho doc thinks I should have a total knee replacement.  I think NOT so opted for draining the knee, the cyst, and a shot of cortisone followed by PT and a big old ugly brace.  I just wasn't expecting the high bp, vision problems, tingling etc. as I've had cortisone before w/o any issues. 

The doc called this the "rusty years" much for all that exercise they say is good for you!!

I have a couple of Rubbernecker cards that I haven't had a chance to get posted.  I've had 3 friends diagnosed with breast cancer in the last week.  That's 3 too many.  I'm sending these cards out with prayers for their complete healing.
