Hang in there!

I hope you are all having a lovely week so far!  I spent Monday and Tuesday with this thing attached to me to monitor my blood pressure over 24 hours - fun!  It's just like how the doctor does it - the bag gets wrapped around the upper arm and then pumped up to get the blood pressure reading - all by it's lonesome - clever machine!  

Unfortunately, it's a big clumpy thing and every half hour it pumps up whilst making a weird, loud whirring noise!  I got some very funny looks when I went to buy some lunch, lol!!  And then it goes off on the hour every hour during the sleeping hours - guess how much sleep I got?!!  So I was a very sleepy bunny yesterday.  Luckily I was awake enough last night to finish a card I've been playing with for the past few days...

 
 
I just love those Some Odd Girl images!  This little monkey is called Hang Out Ollie - look at those saucer sized eyes! Their current challenge is to create your own embellishments so I cut out the two smaller clouds (the largest one is from the My Favorite Things Die-namics trio cloud die (from Dies to Die For in the UK here) but they were the wrong sizes and shapes for my card!).   I used my trusty kraft cardstock and NO design papers again!  Instead I used a Hero Arts cloud background stamp - this is one of my all time favourite stamps!  I used some bakers twine - this stuff is fabulous, I have it in all of the colours!

I based my design on last week's CPS #206 sketch - as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make a window!


Enjoy the rest of your day and I hope you can join me tomorrow with my DT card for Quixotic Paperie!

What a cute card! I've had the blood pressure 24 hours test too, difficult to sleep as you say... And I was teaching a 2 hours course, they saw a big peak in pressure just a bit before and during the course, no wonder why!!!
