Papertake Weekly Challenge "spots and stripes"

Here is my card for this weeks PWC "spots and stripes"
I have used SU card and DCWV papers, the gorjuss image is coloured with proMarkers and the flower is flora doodles. I have only just realised that I have not put a sentiment on :) oh well I can add that when I decide who it is for.

Update and Awards

Just a quickie to say thank you to everyone who has left me comments about my bad back and let you know that it is on the mend now and I will soon be up and running again, still staying at my Moms for bed though, I don't know why but the paint smell is awful and he had only gone and put another coat on today so that is another week at my Moms, the internet is so slow I have not had patience to leave comments so please forgive me :)

I have been cheered up by some gorgeous awards, the first is from the very talented Natalie

and the second one is from the lovely Denise
I am passing these awards onto everyone who visits me, I am so pleased and grateful that you all take the time to visit and leave comments, they really do cheer me up :)

Bad Back and fed up!!!!

As the title says, my back is bad again, I have no idea what I have done but all I do know if that it hurts, I went to the Dr yesterday who gave me painkillers and told me I needed physio if it did not go, but today it seems worse. I have also got to go and stay at my mom's for a few days because we are having our hall, stairs and landing decorated and the paint fumes give me headache and make me sick, so no cards for a few more days :( ......but its not all doom and gloom, one good thing I can get on the internet at my moms so I can take my trusted laptop and blog hop for 2 days :) see there is always a light at the end of the tunnel :)

So I will hopefully catch up with you all over the next few days,

Sorry No cards :(

No cards to show today sorry, I have had my brother and nephew up last weekend from Surrey and Dave's family are coming down from Leeds this weekend, so I am in the middle of a clean up operation :( how boring when I could be crafting. But needs must and if I kept up with it normally I wouldn't be pulling my hair out now trying to get bedding washed, beds changed, fridge and cupboards full etc etc etc,
Anyway enough moaning :) I will try and get round to see you all over the next few days but I won't be posting any cards until everyone has gone and I can mess my craft room up again :)

I hope you all have a fabulous Easter and try not to eat too much chocolate......oh what the heck just go for it and enjoy, I will see you all next week take care xxxx
