Perpetual Birthday Calendar meets Softly Falling

Thank you for stopping by today

My recovery is slow but steady and I start physiotherapy on my wrists this Monday (not looking forward to it) I've had to learn how to do things differently as I can't move my wrist properly anymore.

This is a card which was inspired by my good friend Peg, we made a similar one some time ago and I've just put a slightly different spin on it today by using stamps from the current catalogue and making it bigger in size so as to add the sentiment at the top. 

The materials used are:
Ink: VersaMark, So Saffron
Sponging: So Saffron
Card stock: So Saffron, Whisper White
Glimmer Paper: Dazzling Diamonds
Card base: NSU
Stamps: Bloom With Hope (retired), Perpetual Birthday Calendar
Embossing Powder: Heat & Stick, White
Embossing folders: Softly Falling
Punches: Washi Label
Framelits: Starburst (retired)
Thinlits: Daughter (NSU)
Ribbon: Taffeta So Saffron (ret), White Organza
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, soft clay & flower mould (retired), Tea Lace Doilies

All retired items could easily be replace with items in the current catalogue

Take care and have a great day.

Will be back again soon with more cards

Boys Will Be Boys

Welcome and Hello

I'm happy to say this is a card I made a couple of days ago for my Great Nephew who's birthday was yesterday and he loved it.

I found it difficult and need to use my less dominant hand a lot more than before and so it's quite a simple one. But at least I'm getting there.

I got my cast off just over a week ago, still need to use my less dominant  hand for most things as my left hand can't take any pressure or weight yet but hopefully will improve soon as I have lot's of Christmas cards to make as well as a few more birthdays.

The materials used are:
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black
Markers: Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Boys Will Be Boys
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
Embossing folders: Large Polka Dot
Punches: Corner NSU,Washi Label
Accessories: Candy Dots Neutrals & Regals

Will be back again soon with more cards

Emboss Resist

So glad you dropped by

Today is another card from the past, l made this one sometime earlier this year when having a lovely craft day with my fantastic upline Peg. So if you follow her blog you may have seen it before. Being out of action at the moment l picked this one to send to my Aunt, hope she liked it.

I'm feeling out of sorts at the moment, as l ordered a MISTI and Fuse tool a couple of weeks ago and there now both sitting there waiting to be used, while l sit with two useless hands for at least another two weeks. My advise don't come down stairs with your hands full, it could be very painful indeed. 

The materials used are:
Ink: Sahara Sand, VersaMark
Card stock: Sahara Sand, Vellum, Whisper White
Stamps: Perpetual Calendar, Petal Potpourri (retired), For The Birds (retired)
Embossing Powder: White
Punches: Flower Medallion, 1" Square (for banner tails) 
Embosslits: Beautiful Butterflies (retired)
Accessories: Sponges

Will be back again soon with more cards
