Birthday Wishes

Birthday Wishes 2013

The challenge at Cards for Men has started and for this challenge #10 it is all about fancy folds and my card has no special folds. All of the other ones did the fancy folds so you can stop by and see all their wonderful creations. No excuse.. for me! Other them my crazy sciatica nerve. I do have to say my dear friend Marie-Louise gave me the best advice she said to do stretching work out and I do have to thank her so much!!! It worked, I finally am pain free. Ladies if this ever happens to you and I hope not that is what you have to do and no matter how it hurts that is the only way you are going to get it to go away. It lasted for over 2 1/2 weeks and I had such a hard time sitting at my computer and even doing my cards. Thanks so much Marie-Louise, you really helped.

Love this card, Patricia! The image is adorable--really love your fab coloring & wonderful sparkle! Love the design and the colors and great DP--and cool bow on this, too! :^)
So glad to hear that your back is better! That's such a miserable experience. I didn't know there were stretching exercises to relieve it!
Hugs, Penny
