The Mixed Media Card challenge ~ Love

Hi Friends! I want to thank you for all the well wishes ! Your the best! I'm all recovered from the pneumonia , yay! I'm waiting for a referring doctor to call me re: the gallbladder....meanwhile I'm on a no fat diet and have lost 20 pounds in the last few weeks. I haven't had anymore attacks since I've been eating this way but I feel like I'm turning into a rabbit with all the veggies and fruits I'm eating lol! I'm sorry this card is late in posting, I had it done last month but was just to sick to post. On the 1st started a new challenge started at The Mixed Media Card Challenge!

 
 
 
Here's my card. I started by spritzing paint on the stencil and laying it down on my paper. Once that was dry I put the stencil back down and added embossing paste. Then I just layered a bunch of Maggie Holmes Ephemera !
 
Hugs, Char

Good to hear that Char!!! I started a no sugar week 5 months ago, just no sugar for a week every month, I lose some weight without knowing, getting rid of "bad food" once in a while can do a lot of good to your body!
Lovely work, and I am happy to see you creating again!

Dee-licious, Char!!! Love that pretty collage on your gorgeous background! I'm so glad you're better!!! I'm only now getting caught up with blogging and blogging friends! I was sad to hear you'd stepped down from City Crafter…you've been with them for so long…I'm sure that wasn't easy, but I think you've made a wise decision! Health and family has to come first…or we go crazy…and get sick!!!;)…and creating isn't fun anymore. We can't have that!!! You're far too talented, and I know creating's in your BLOOD!!! Just look what you did here! All I can say is ENJOY!!! Enjoy the freedom to craft what you want, when you feel like it…no deadlines…just fun!!! Hey, the background paper you asked about was the little 'fourteen' pad (Crate). Thanks so much for your sweet comment on that card!!! Take care of yourself, sweet friend!!!

Char, your card is a beauty. The colors and layers are super.

Oh, you are really eating healthy...something I need to work on and leave off the sweets. Maybe I would drop a few pounds. I sure am glad your pneumonia is gone and hope the gall bladder problem is taken care of very soon.

Oh, yay! I'm SO glad to hear you are starting to feel better, and that the gallbladder attacks are under control for now! What a huge relief that must be! Might even make it worthwhile to eat all that rabbit food. :)
Really loving your card! Love what you did with the stencil, mist, and modeling paste on the background. And love the Valentine embellishment cluster, too!

Happy to hear you are on the mend Char. Taking care of health for the wife and due diligence of chores and obligations for me have kept me away from my blog and all of you lovely people for a few months. I know what you are felling right now and agree and support your decision.

Wonderful card. beautifully crafted.

Hugs and Blessings - Jikm

I am sooo glad you are feeling better, Char!!! Your card is beautiful with all the stacked elements and beautiful colors!!! I especially love how you created the background...just awesome!!!

Loll Thompson said...

So sorry to hear you've been sick Char. Glad to hear you are feeling better, except for the limited diet. I had gallbladder problems 20 years ago, so I know exactly what those attacks are like --- uggghhh ... so horrible! Take care of yourself and hope it is sorted out for you soon.

I'm been off for a few weeks as well. I fell and tore a tendon in my right leg. Had to have surgery and am now home resting up and slowing healing Still having to get around with a walker, so too difficult for me to spend much time in the studio.

LOVE your LOVE card :) So beautiful, elegant and feminine. Always wow'd by your creations. Take care. Loll xx

Mona Pendleton said...

Happy to hear you are on the mend Charlene :) Your card is so pretty! Love the beautiful background

Karen D. said...

So sorry to hear of your health problems I just can not imagine having both those things at the same time since I had my gall bladder out 3 years ago and totally understand your suffering. I have bronchitis right now so can't even imagine how bad pneumonia must be.
Take care..hope you get some relief soon!!
sending hugs,
K
