Creating Tired

Last night, I created this card.  I’ve had the idea for a few days, but I’ve been so tired, I didn’t make the time to create it.  I was not pleased.

The front is a shaker card, but I just didn’t like it very much.  The inside, which I made from the scraps I do like.  Today, I added 3 gold sequins above the crown, which makes it a bit better.

I used the Queen for the Day set from MFT.  I also did an alcohol ink panel, which is inside the shaker crown and a bit of it is in the inside, too.

It’s a fun card, as it’s a shaker, but I really do like it better after adding a bit of bling to the front.  (Thank you for the advice Erika Hayes!)

I was diagnosed with Valley Fever last Friday (after lots and lots of tests), and started the medicine this Friday, as I finally got to see (virtually) a specialist, this Friday.  I have been overwhelmingly tired for the past couple of weeks, so this was definitely created in my tiredness.  I got started on medicine this Friday and after a really rough Friday night, am getting a little better every day.  This is thanks to many prayers and the medicine.  I just love how God works through people!  Granted, I could have had a seriously bad reaction had I not seen this amazing Cardiologist on Friday.  He recognized that the medicine I had started that morning would have a bad interaction with one of the drugs I’ve been on for years to help prevent problems with my Type 1 diabetes.  He prescribed a different medication for the duration of my taking the medication for the Valley Fever and two weeks after.  If you need a cardiologist recommendation in the Phoenix AZ area, go see Dr. Yu with HonorHealth!  He’s running tests on my heart, but they are for preventative measures, not that there is anything wrong, now.  God puts us in the right place, at the right time, all the time!  So grateful to our amazing Father.

Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today!

  1. I like both of these and admire you for creating even when feeling awful. I’d never heard of Valley Fever so looked it up to find out more. Hope you are feeling better now and thank goodness for an ‘on the ball’ doctor.

    1. Thanks Johanna. I’ve been taking the medicine for a week now and am not quite as tired as I was, but my lower legs are hurting a lot. I’m hoping it just takes time and they will get better.
