Truly Scrumptious - Challenge #5

Well alrighty then....
I am finally able to get something posted here.
I really had a struggle with this weeks sketch,
and the worst part of it, is that I don't even know why!

Truly Scrumptious is hosting it's 5th Challenge this week.
It sounds like a lot of fun, and I couldn't wait to get started
but I found that my shoulder pain really does interfere
with a persons Mojo to create!

I got so frustrated. I ended up making 2 cards,
after the first one I thought "That just doesn't do it for me"
So I started over using the same papers,
but I changed pictures and altered the layout just a hair...
This one came up much more to my liking.
GEE WHIZ Why do I have to deal with pain
when all I really want to do is sit there and be carefree
and create WHATEVER... So this weeks entries
definitely took a little bit of extra effort for me.

It seems that my favorite thing to say
for the past 2 weeks would have to be
"Oh I'm going to die, I just know it" LOL....
Hot packs, ice packs, massaging chairs, hot showers and even
visits to the Chiropractor, and I'm STILL in rough shape
Which might account for my randomness in visiting blogs.

I want my old self back.... and hopefully it will come!
But in the mean time please bear with me
if I'm slow to come and visit other blogs.

Okay enough of my sad sappy story
I will show you both cards now.
Both images are digital images by Dustin Pike

The first one
with a computer generated sentiment.

The Second one
(Which I like much better)
the sentiment used here is from Stampin' Up "Bugs & Kisses"
