An ATC: a blast from my past ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week was good and you have fabulous plans for the weekend. I cannot remember the last time I created an ATC! Once again when we moved my work room around I found some that I had made years ago as well as some that I had gotten in a swap. I used to do a lot of the swapping with them but where I can’t get out much these days I don’t normally take part in them. Anyways here is the ATC I made especially for the Artist Trading Post current challenge and, for me, luckily it fits a few other challenges too …
It was a fun way to use up some snippets! Side view - I have a little dimension because of the butterflies
I love using the two sizes of butterflies in this set
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges:
Use either photo as your inspiration: I used the colour photograph
Inspired by Stamping Challenge: IBISC92 I used the colour pallette and a little more
A quick and short post today – I’m in more pain because I saw the RA Consultant and her examination has hurt and further aggravated a nasty and intense flare. She said she needed to check that it was the fibro and not the joints so she pressed my neck and shoulders down. Suffice to say I am more than a bit grumpy right now!
We did find out about a couple of things though. We had thought the swollen hands, wrists and joints were from the RA. Also I’ve been having a problem with my eyes and that is probably caused by one of the RA meds. Apparently I should be eye tested regularly too. Of course they can’t do anything to help with the fibro – sorry to be so grumpy, but I am moving like a really old woman and didn’t sleep well again.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this weekend ttfn Karen x
