Tuesday's Morning Sketch


I confess to a melt down the last few days. I usually someone who puts a smile on my face and gets on with life regardless to what pain I'm in and try not to dwell on things I can't do any more but every now and then I get a form to fill in. Its asking me to write down all the things my arthritis doesn't allow me to do anymore and suddenly I have to get my head out of the sand think about the things I can't do.
So yesterday I decided to have a craft day which is probably why I hurt quite a bit today but its a good hurt if that makes sense because it hurts because I was doing what I loved.
Now you know I love the teapot dies from MFT and I was checking round blogland to get a few ideas and saw the sketch on Tuesday Morning Sketch and I just knew I had to make this card.
The papers are Basic Grey and definitely Picadilly unlike yesterdays card I'm now not convinced that it was.
I loaded quite a few pic this morning and the squares one were OK but this one caused quite a bit of trouble and I know people are having issues about loading. I been to a few blogs this morning while waiting for daylight and some pics are not showing hopefully you will see this card.

  7. Hi Debby,

    I know what it is, having pain every day, and it;s really depressing if you see that you can do less more
    But try to turn it and look what you can do now.
    You;re making wonderful cards , they make me happy if I look at the bright colors.
    Hugs Andrea

  28. Now if I had seen these dies I would never have bought them and I can't help but say 'they are not my cup of tea' (hope no one else has said that as I don't read previous comments, jump straight to comment form)
    But seeing this card I would now see them in a different light, love the way you have done the cups to match the paper, Fabulous card.

  38. Hi Debby, I am doing a 'catch up' with you all, sorry I missed this earlier....I so understand what your saying here, it's better when you try and ignore whats happening to you, rather than dwell on it, but every now and then we have to wake, with a start....I get shocked sometimes when I think and I do get down in dumps with it...but..like you, we have to pick ourselves up and carry on, I do hope your feeling much better now, take care.xxx

  47. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!.
