A One Layer CAS card.......


Hello Blogger's......

Sorry, I've been absent other than the cards I've committed to for a week or so.  My back has been so bad, even the pain killers didn't seem to be working for a while. I've been doing the exercises that were recommended and I thought I should try and limit the time I sit at the computer and my work desk.  I'm pleased to say things are improving slowly and yesterday I actually worked on a fun project ready for the Waltzingmouse St Patrick's Day Blog Hop.......can't share just yet though!

I do have a card for this weeks  Less Is More Challenge  # 6  "Off The Edge"...... 




For me part of the fun of this challenge site is reading all the comments.   Participants are  encouraged to appraise all the cards entered..........which might not always be appreciated!  There are a few 'well known'  names entering cards here every week and they have inspiration to share.  I think I can live with a few odd comments, in the main they are mostly very pleasant and when it all boils down I make cards for fun!.......Oh and the comments I really don't like I can reject a the Comment Moderation stage!!!

See you soon.......

Stamps are from AnnaBelle Stamps here in Australia. Ink By SU and the Card is from Pink Petticoat.

Hi Sue,
I'm pleased to hear that your back is improving, having had back surgery in the past you have my utmost sympathy!
I think your attitude towards commenting is spot on...I'm sure all comments are made with nothing but goodwill intended and as you say, if you think any inappropriate, there's always the reject or delete option!
Several people have thought of balloons for their 'Off the edge' submission, it's such a good idea.
Thanks for joining us again and I hope that back continues to improve!

This is pretty! I love the way you stamped directly onto the DP.

Glad your back has improved a little - it's no fun living with pain.

Love the card, take care of your self, that's more important. Bill is down with his back too, they can't seem to find out what's wrong with it,

Glad to hear that your back is mending, however slowly. This is such a great CAS, off the edge idea.

So glad you back is on the mend! Sitting is way harder on my back then being up and around! So I stand and stamp LOL! Your card is super fun... up, up and away! Love balloons! Must be the kid in me HEHEHEHE!

Sue love your balloon card, looks like they are about to fly off the top of the card!
Take care of that back, I know what problems they can cause after having surgery 17 years ago, glad you are limiting the sitting, but pleased it's on the mend.

Sue, I love the balloons floating of the page. I'm not sure if you used polka dotted paper or stamped it...but I think it adds a lot to the balloons. Cute, cute card!!
