Hip Hip Hooray Riley

 Hello Monday!

Yep, not my favorite day, but I do have a card to share. Today's card is for Our Creative Corner (Party) and Little Red Wagon (Life's a Beach). 

I am struggling with daily headaches and am open to any suggestions you may have. They were on an off for  awhile at first I would have one two days in a row, then not for a couple days, then another. I am now on a stretch of six days. I did not have one last Tuesday, but I did have the day before that. So far, I have had a massage. I've been doing yoga & stretching. I have cut out all the caffeine. I am trying to stay sufficiently hydrated. It is just awful - I usually wake up feeling good and make it to lunch or so before it starts and it often lasts until I go to bed. Last night it didn't last so long. So annoying and it is making me super cranky!

Oh well, could always be worse. Here is the inside of my card. I always love the fun "scene" type papers included in paper packs, but have a hard time using them. Here is my attempt - the wave (from the card front) and the palm tree (from the inside) were all one piece of paper, but I cut them and used them separately. I think it worked anyhow. The banner is cut out from one of the papers. These are from Fancy Pants' "Beach Bum" 6x6 line.  I think there is still one available at DAT'S. I have had so much fun using this paper pad.

Better run, maybe I can convince hubby to use a rolling pin on my neck. lol

  1. Ok, headaches... is it hormonal. I didn't used to, but I get dreadful headaches now at certain times of the month.

    Love both cards. Fab bunting on the first. Mwah. xx

  2. Too cute!! I love the Riley images (:
    As for the headache, have you tried allergy medication?? I used to get horrible headaches across my forehead and it ended up being allergies, even though I didn't have any other symptoms. Regular Tylonol wouldn't cut it and drinking a tonne of water never did either. Good Luck, hope you are feeling better soon!!

  3. Adorable card!! Allergies are front and center in Thunder Bay right now...with all the pressure changes it's not fun. Try Reactine Sinus and see if it helps. Lee-Ann :)

  4. Great card! Great to complete the inside of your card too--I'm always too lazy and just leave them blank, but this looks great!
    Thanks for playing along with us at LRW!!

  5. Shanna, love how you used the scene pattern paper on the card front and inside. Very clever, creative and appropriate! LOVE IT! Your pirate moose is adorable and I love the fun pattern paper panel behind him and that great banner. Thanks for sharing a well constructed card!
    thank you for playing along with us @ OCC.
    love your cards, TFS

  6. This is just lovely ... your mix of patterned papers are just great, love the sweet party banner!
