A pain in the neck
quite literally.

and no crafting for me today..(sigh)
due to a particulary  bad flare up of my cervical spondylosis i am in a bit of pain today and have lost the mobility in my neck and upper back..I tried making an atc this morning for a swap i am hoping to join over at,
addicted to atc's
but had to abandon it half way through due to the pain..i wasn't very happy with it either..
I am also really struggling with the theme too...i just simply have not got a clue..unless i make another 3 similar to my dress it up swap..maybe?
anyway luckily i have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow.
anyway SORRY for the moan.
at least i can still surf a little and check out all the lovely cards you ladies create

(swap til you drop)
are having their JUNE 2010 swap
The theme is DRESS IT UP
Margaret set the theme and i used her tutorial too for a folder page pocket
I have created 5 atc's one for myself and four for the swap
here are the four i have created for the swap

each atc has been stitched with either beads or sequins 
The first atc contains my own hand felted material and the  last two atc's contain my own hand dyed material which i then stamped
I had such fun creating these atc's
Head on over to The artists trading club and join in the swap
