At the moment I am suppose to by off cycle touring but unfortunately I have hurt my back and we have had to come back to Melbourne for me to recover, I was completely gutted in having to return home and not completing the journey up to Canberra but I suppose the upside of it is that I get to recover comfortably ... in my craft room off course!
Technically it is not good for me to be sitting down bending over my desk so I decided to pass the time away by making a card which can take me all day as I do a little then get up and move about and go back to it later. Over the past few days the back has healed tremendously and I can feel my normal movement coming back, so much so that we intend heading off again mid next week but in a different direction.
So this card is following the sketch from Card Patterns #138 and I have drawn inspiration from the challenge over at Scrapbook Boutique - black and white.
