Two today...

I can't take much credit for this card... it's one of those strange ones with a mind of its own, and although I'd coloured the image to match some papers it wasn't having any of it!  So this is how it ended up...



The image is from the Two Today set from DigiStamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The scrap of striped paper is Pink Petticoat, button and twine from my stash and stars cut with nesties.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I've got all my results at the doctors today so I can stop stressing finally!  I'm severely anaemic apparently, which explains why I feel like a limp dishcloth and why my head is constantly throbbing.  They were a bit concerned that there might be an underlying cause as my levels are so low, but as all my other blood results are fine they don't think there is.  So I can stop boring you all now, and hopefully I'll start to pick up a bit once the iron tablets take effect :o)

  5. Hi Lisa, what a cute card! Love the image and the colour is brilliant - so vibrant! Glad to hear you've had your blood tests and your anaemia is treatable with the tablets. Hope you are feeling 100% again soon. Sarah P.S. I had tablets for anaemia after having Emily, great big things they were, made me feel better though!

  18. I love your number cards Lisa - very cute! So pleased to hear the good test news - although anaemia isn't fun. You might like to stock up on prunes unless iron tablets have changed since the last time I took them! Take care, Vx

  40. Hi Lisa, glad your results show the problem is manageable. I had to take iron (substitute "horse" lol) pills years ago and they do make a huge difference, but take a word of advice: plenty of fibre and extra water :-) Love your card, cute image and just the right amount of embellies, class as usual!
