Thank heavens for the weekend.....

it means the week is over and an horendous one it's been too 
everything that could have gone wrong did I think 
from fire alarms,broken shoes,lost keys,arguing siblings
and what with this pain in my shoulder to top it off  friday couldn't come quick enough.
My docs are useless, trying to get an appointment is like trying to see the queen I think
but now I've got some decent pain killers to leave it to a dull ache 

The best start to the weekend was that I went to see Breaking Dawn
  ohhh  it was lovely the cinema was practically empty as they had put so many showing of it on 
and it was  a wonderful  2+  hours escape from the mundane challenges of the week   
 So on to  my quick card for today it is using one of  lia's fabulous images from  Whimsy

image used Carol by Whimsy artist Lia's  
Goodies Used:Whimsy digi  image, SU papers,wild orchid  craft flowers,gems and sentiment from stash

Whats the best treatment for a pain in the neck

 ....and Im  not talking about Hubby or the kids lol
Its been over a week now since being in agony and the pain is getting unbearable ,deep heat (oh my does that stuff smell) has no great effect and neither do pain killers.
So my card making has been the bear minimum this week because of  it.
(sorry about that I hope some stronger pain killers will work from tomorrow so  Ican  get some work done  ) 
but what do you do when and if you get a pain in the neck?  
 Im off to put some more of that stinky deep heat on  and   hope fully catch  you later in the week
