Happy Thoughts!!

Perfect sentiment for me today!! Absolutely Happy Thoughts!! I am on the mend from my back problems and hopefully will not come back again. As the orthopedic physician said today- most women describe the back pain I have had as the equivalent to having a baby without pain medication-- I totally agreed except for one thing- you eventually have the baby- with this back pain the only option is muscle relaxants and pain meds!!

Enough gab- I'm squeaking this card in at the last minute as it is.

This card is for the week 1 Verve sketch using this week's Color Throwdown colors . Not sure why but, for some reason this sketch "threw me" a little- had a hard time with the circle element behind the rectangle panel. Anyway- The leaves and flowers are from Verve's Dream Big stamped in Pear Pizzazz, Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, and Blushing Bride. Leaves and flowers were die cut with Verve's Dreamy Leaves and Scallop Flowers dies. Sentiment is from Verve's Amazing Wishes and stamped on a Flag It Die from Verve. 

Gotta go and work on another card for another deadline. Trying to catch up playing in my fav challenges.

Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

This card is absolutely beautiful, Vickie. So sorry you've been in pain. I've had severe low back pain ever since I had the twins, and it's the pits! {grin}
