Greetings from Middle Earth and a bad back!

Have you seen The Hobbit yet?  Martin Freeman was an inspired choice for Bilbo Baggins, and I loved it, all the more because Richard Armitage was Thorin, one of the Dwarfs - never thought I would fancy a dwarf after Viggio Mortensen as Aragorn!.  And to top it off, Aiden Turner of Being Human was another dwarf - my cup runneth over!!  It also set my thoughts to thinking of Mo's Dwarf images  and how perfect they would be for Hobbit related cards at the minute - I've used Dwarf 4 for my card, teamed him with some Memory Box Blackbird Papers, a few of these fabulous cogs which were a Christmas present from best matey, Lesley ,and then a Dymo sentiment.

The card was for my nephew-in-law, so difficult to make a man card,so I hoped he liked!

I am feeling proper fed-up today - I've got a weak spot in my back, which for years hasn't caused me any problems and the last couple of days has just got worse and worse. Can't stand up or sit down easily but it has got me out of making dinner tonight so every cloud....!
Hope you've all had a good weekend, whatever you've been up to!

Great card, Julie - inspired idea to use Mo's dwarfs for a Hobbit card. I loved the movie too, and have to say that Thorin and Fili were my favourite dwarfs too!!

WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW Julie I love, love, love your card. Fabulous male card. I have to admit I have never seen this image before and what you have done with it is PERFECT.
Do take care of your back I ended up having 4 vertebrae fused 4 years ago and even though the surgery went well it's never the same.
Hope you feel better soon
