My "cheats" DT card for Charisma!


We're doing Monochrome over at Charisma this week but I'm afraid I did have to resort to cheating and using an old card I made ages ago as I just wasn't able to get one done on time for Charisma. This doesn't mean, however, that you can do the same, oh no, DT priviledges and unavoidable circumstances - well that's my excuse anyway, but in seriousness you do need to enter a new card for challenges. It doesn't have to black & white either, you can use any colour tone.

So the reason I've had to use an old card, well it's a bit long winded, but the brief version is I've got a frozen shoulder which is causing me enough grief anyway, and then yesterday (being my usual disorganised self and leaving making my DT card to the last minute) I managed to have an accident yesterday and fell over twisting my shoulder and I can honestly say it's the worst pain that shot through my shoulder I've ever felt - give me toothache, backache & childbirth all at once rather than that again!!!! Anyway, I was totally out of action all afternoon, the pain went right down into my hand so I couldn't do much of anything (plus I was feeling more than a little sorry for myself!). So the old card was used instead! And that m'Lord is the case for the defense!!

Feeling ok again today, just the usual ache, which doesn't seem half so bad in comparison!

Now another confession, this card is cased, I'm afraid I can't remember where from as I did do it ages ago, but saw a very similar design & loved it and made my own version of it.

Here's the details:
Image & sentiment - digi from Pink Petticoat
Cardstock - SU! Whisper White & Basic Black
Ribbon - SU! Whisper White
Embossing folder
Papers from stash

Hope you can join us this week & TFL xx
