Merry Monday Pinecones

Well, I did something to my back. It happens now & then, and boy, does it make everything difficult! Muscle relaxants aren't great for thinking :) I did get a card made for the barely-current Merry Monday challenge - finding pinecones wasn't easy! Patterned paper came to the rescue.


Supplies: Mainly stash - Recollections tag; PTI sentiment; Brushed Corduroy distress ink; Paper Smooches twine; Corner Chomper

I'm also really excited because after years of a gimpy desk chair, Rob surprised me with a new chair yesterday. The back is not only securely attached, but adjustable. So when I can sit at the desk again, I'll have back support! *wooooot*


xoxo,
Jessi

Oh, Jessi, so sorry your back is acting up. I agree, muscle relaxants are more designed for not thinking than thinking. And yet you created a sweet and perfectly put-together card!
