Sometimes we do such silly things

Today I got up not feeling well at all and I forgot that I have intolerance to codeine, I took two tablets that had codeine and I spent the whole day in bed extremely dizzy, anyway I have learnt my lesson and will be very careful with what I take from now on. It's a first for me to feel worse after taking pain killers.

This is another simple card that I have used making a new KennyK retro image. For this card I printed the image of the lady and the sentiment directly onto the cardstock. I cut the cardstock so that a part of her shoe, dress and hair is slightly off the page, I feel this adds some movement and dimension to the card. When I paper pieced the dress I stuck it on the cardstock so that the dress was slightly lifted, added the ribbon and bling to finish off. I am really happy with the way this card has turned out and it's another card that's quick and easy card to make, simple cards are pretty much all I can manage at the moment. I have been busy making stock for Handmade Canberra, I have added a new page where I am going to be adding the things I sell at the shop, you can check out the details here.
