My Cricut Imagine is Yummy-licious

Supplies:  Cricut Imagine image;
Echo Park "Life is Good" background papers;
DCWV card base;
My Pink Stamper "Yummy-licious" sentiment)

 Hello, my Bloggie Friends!  I have not been able to craft (or type...any activity with my arms forward) for a week now due to a pinched nerve in my upper back. My doctor said I could now resume normal activities as much as I could tolerate, but no heavy lifting or carrying.  My dh has been terrific doing the grocery shopping, cooking, and dishwashing.  I am typing this post, but resting my arm when the tingling becomes too uncomfortable.

Since our move to our new home last Spring, I have been able to keep my craft room neat and organized.  I unpacked my craft room in April and for nearly six weeks I cleaned up my supplies after every card, LO, or project.  Wahoo!  Then in early June, I hit a creative road block.  There were piles of papers and supplies on the floor surrounding me and on my work table...cards that just wouldn't come together.  Since then I have slowly worked those piles, so now the only mess is confined to my work table.  I actually made these 3 cards last month and photographed them, but I had not blogged them.                                                                        
 These last two are also Cricut Imagine images and DCWV card bases with a little twine and crinkle ribbon.
It was fun playing with my Cricut Imagine and using up some really old stash (DCWV card bases), and it was a relief to create a few cards and then put the supplies away...no more piles on the floor :)

Happy Sunday!

Hi sweetest lady in my life!!! I am sooo stinkin' sorry about that pinched nerve, good golly. I pissed of my sciatic nerve from moving, so I'm about as peeved about it as the nerve is!! The nerve of that nerve!!

I have come to realize that I just absolutely love your style. I couldn't figure out exactly what pleases me so much each time I see your cards...and it's gotta be the style. It's "gentle" is all I could think of quickly. Each card makes me feel like you've just created a hug!! Too sappy?

UGH! Glad you are better, but seriously, rest! Everyone will understand on here! I was planning on calling you, but things got a bit crazy. No, no baby yet. But just a lot of family. Hopefully we can craft tomorrow.?. LOVES!

Ouch that does not sound like fun. Having a hubby do the shopping and other stuff sounds wonderful but not for that reason.
Love your cards and so happy to read you are enjoying your Imagine. Oh and your new home.
Have a wonderful week.
