Good news and bad

Lets start with the good news.  I would like to say Hi to my new follower and a BIG THANK YOU to Pam for doing a Blog Candy which I was lucky enough to win.  I was so surprised to actually win something.  My daughter had been looking at Pam's blog and catching up and what was happening and said that I had won and I thought she was joking.   I was especially pleased to have won the Grand Nestablities, my daughter had given me a Grand Calibur and two Edgeabilities  for my birthday at the end of last year and  I have been using it for all my nesties but didn't have any other large ones, so thank you again Pam for such a super candy.

Bad news is that I may be visiting the Doctor again, last month it was with a ruptured leg muscle and now I have the feeling that the pain in my right hand (of course I am right handed) may be tendonitis.  I will see how it goes today and if it is still giving me pain I will have to make a visit to see him.

I have a few packs of cards that are 5 by 7 and quite honestly I find them difficult to actually use, I never seem to be find that my layouts look good.  But I decided last night that I would try and use at least one of them.   This is what I produced, not sure about it now, but as I have been about a week without posting anything - I was getting withdrawal symptoms.

For this card I used the following:
Red card from stash
Pattern card from DCWV Nana's Kitchen Stash
Spellbinders Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities die and Labels Two Nestabilites
Ribbon was from a box of blank cards which I couldn't throw away
Pearls from stash

The Nana's Kitchen Stash has a lot of embossed sheets the sheets I used for the flowers was both an embossed sheet and a matt sheet.
