Hasn't it gotten so cold!! The past couple of day have been freezing and I'm convinced I saw snow yesterday! Hopefully it's just a little blip and will warm up a bit again, but I'm not holding my breath! (cos it makes fog! lol)
I had my first physio appointment on Thursday which went well. I've been officially diagnosed with whiplash in my neck and back and my spine has locked itself into protective mode! She told me it could take two years before I'm back to normal! :( Although she said that hopefully some physio will speed things up a bit. :) She started some massage on the left side of my neck and back and my left shoulder which she said was very tight and boy did it hurt! It definitely wasn't what I'd call a relaxing massage! She also asked me if I felt anxious about being in cars since the accident, I said I am a bit but am getting better, she told me that she knows of some people who were in less serious accidents and wouldn't get back into a car - just saying that actually made me feel a bit better!
My Dad drove me to the appointment and on the way home he had to stand on the brakes which made me jolt forward and into the seat belt which hurt like hell! I tried not to make him feel too bad though as what he did was probably better than running into the car in front when it braked hard! It didn't help with the pain or the anxiousness about being in a car though!
Anyway, back to the cooking :)
It's time for the third challenge at Eclectic Ellapu - the second challenge for the Pink DT! And it's the lovely NanaConnie's turn to host and the challenge she chose for this week is...
Recipe! - 1 Digi/Stamped image, 2 Patterned papers and 3 embellishments of the same kind!
As I said, I'm not a great cook and I usually always stray off a recipe and add a few other bits and pieces! But, I tried to be good and this is what I did...
The image is a digi from Saturated Canary called Christmas Angel. I coloured her with the following copics: Skin;E21,13,00,0000,R20. Dress;V12,06,04,0000,YG17,13,11. Wings;BG02,000,0000. Eyes;YG95. Hair;E49,39,35,31. Lips;RV34,32. Background;G21,20,C4,2. And some black prisma pencil.
I coated her wings with glossy accents and glamour dust so they're super extra sparkly! I also used some decoart glistening snow writer to make little dots around the image.
The papers are Kaiser Craft; Christmas Carnival Collection. I used Go Kreate large circle dies to cut the card base and layers and then I used Spellbinders circles, large scallop circles and Heirloom ornaments for the other elements. My three embellishments are some really cheap Christmas decorations that I got years ago and have been lying in my stash all this time feeling sorry for themselves and thinking they'll never be used, but everything will get used sometime! (Yeah right!)
The sentiment panel came out of the same paper pad and I used a CC Designs sentiment stamp with Lilac Posies Memento ink.
The inside uses up a scrap of the paper and a smaller size of the die with a wood mounted Papermania sentiment.
So pop over to the Eclectic Ellapu challenge blog to see the rest of the DT's fantabulous pieces of inspiration and join in the fun!
