I’m part-time back in the saddle of the old craft room (complete with new “saddle” in the way of a new office chair as my old chair was not helping my bad back).

I do have to be careful of how long I spend seated and bending over to colour etc. but it’s good to get a few minutes here and there to play with my supplies.

I made this card a couple of weeks ago – it was actually on the first day of my latest bad back spell…I could barely sit up to make the card but it was time-sensitive (baby showers don’t get rescheduled for a card!) so I soldiered through and managed to make this.  Special thanks to DH who dropped it off at my office for the deadline.

This card was made for the same shower the last giraffe card was for but I didn’t have much in the way of suitable secondary giraffes so I got this colouring page off the ‘net and printed it out to colour.  I was a bit overzealous with my embellishments -and have some of the asterisk-shaped wooden shapes somewhere that would have been perfect on this card but my back didn’t allow me to go searching for them…maybe next time if I have enough of this patterned paper left for another card.

I am really behind on cards that I need – two birthdays and a sympathy card are required post haste and I’m really hoping to get them done in the next day or so.  I also had another non-card project this weekend and I’ll be back to share that tomorrow for the sake of getting a few posts on the blog.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday…I’m going to do a little tidying up in the craft room to prepare for messing it up again to make cards!
