Card Group #4

Ok here are the cards I came up with for my 4th card group kit. I had a really difficult time with this paper. Not sure if I'm thrilled with these, but they are done. I still have my kit from my 3rd meeting that I didn't get to use because of my shoulder & arm problems. I need to get it out and do something with it too.

Paper: Daisy D's, Bazzill, Stampin Up
Stamps: Stamin Up, Hero Arts
Embellishments: Heidi Swapp, Prima, MM
Not sure who makes the ribbon, crystals or the black brad on the lower right card.

Aging Sucks!!!!

I saw the orthopedist yesterday & was told that my shoulder & arm pain are due to me having arthritic changes in my neck & narrowed disc spaces. I am only 39. How can I be getting arthritis this bad already?! Of course the anti-inflammation meds he wanted me to take I can't due to having an allergy to sulfa meds. I start physical therapy next week and we will see what happens.

I have got to start exercising! My grandmother has arthritis & disc degeneration in her neck and is in such back shape because of it. I do not want to end up in chronic pain any faster than I have to. Guess it is definitely time to look into getting us a Bowflex to use. This diagnosis was definitely not what I wanted to hear!

Time drags when your in pain

I have spent very little time on the computer the last 12 days due to suffering with shoulder & arm pain. Woke up with a crick in my neck 12 days ago. It obviously wasn't just any old crick, because I have been in excruciating pain. Taking muscle relaxer & pain pills and still not getting complete relief. Hopefully the orthopedic doctor will be able to help me on Thur.
