Hi everyone. I'm making this short and sweet because my neck is killing me. I did go to the doctor yesterday and he took some x-rays and said that I have several degenerative discs in my neck that may be contributing to the problem, but really I just slept in a way that made a muscle in my shoulder tight and the next morning when I had that little "crick" my instincts are to protect it, so I unconsciously bunch my shoulders up which keeps more muscles tense and they are just tight and pulling up into my head.
So, he sent me home with some topical ointment, some muscle relaxers, and some pain pills along with instructions to put moist heat on it and do some stretching exercises. I did that all day yesterday and still don't have that much relief. It even hurts to swallow because the muscles used to swallow are all part of it! He said if I don't feel significant improvement by Friday to call his office and he'll set me up with some physical therapy.
Okay, enough about that! If you haven't yet commented on yesterday's card and you'd like a chance to win it along with a matching envelope, you need to go do that now. I'll be hack around noon to tell you who random.org picked!
Now for today's card - I made this for the challenge that Squigglefly is having this week. We are to use the colors red & green (but it doesn't have to be Christmas colors) and two stars somewhere on out card. Here's the card I came up with

I used these copics to color it
The words are computer generated, but I can't remember the name of the font I used. The image is one from Squigglefly called Miss Priss. I used a little bit of vellum that was embossed and border punched over the same border on the red piece of paper. I really like that look!
Well, take care and have a wonderful day! I'll be back a little after noon to announce the winner!
