Hearts

If you are looking for Hearfelt Creations Blog Hop check here. Morning.......I'm off work today, had to drive to the doctor in Winston yesterday due to my RA flairing up in my left hand, he gave me a powerful shot and put me out of work for a few days so I can wear my brace and rest it. I am typing or trying to with one hand, it isn't easy let me tell ya. I'm slow enough LOL. I did manage to make this card, took me all morning and half of it was already done lying on my desk. It's for 2 of my favorite challenge sites, Outlines and Cheery Lynn. I used the following items:
Martha Stewart Scroll Heart large punch
EK's small heart punch
Cheery Lynn's Fanciful Flourish
Stampin Up's embossinf folder
Spellbinders Fleur De Liz Squares
Stickles
and Outlines stamp. don't know the name of it but I got it last year at Enchanted Cottage. Okay, wish me luck and I'll catch up with you later, God bless and remember, smile, God loves ya!!

beautiful die and embossing! now what is the definition of a craft addict?
"one who continues to craft with one hand in a brace, in pain, who should be resting that wrist""

hmmmmmm, do we know anyone else like this? ohhhhhhh Mary An-nnnnne....

What a beauty this card is, with the embossing, flower flourish and other die cuts, layers and color! Love everything about it!
Hope you get over this flareup sooner rather than later! Remember -- you can't keep a good crafter down (wise words I heard from "someone" lately!)

Becky said...

Pretty good I'd say for a one armed crafter....hope you feel better soon! REST!!!

Carol said...

This is beautiful! You are even good with one hand tied behind you back!! Get better! No "hard" stamping, just gentle tapping of the stamp on the ink pad and then on the paper. :o)
Praying for you!

ah Olga you have my sympathy my dear mum had severe RA and had over 20 surgeries with it over 25 years - so there is a blessing we can craft a little - if one handed - mum slept in her sleeping splints which helped her a lot and lambswool on her elbows too they wrapped around - I found them for her and there were larger ones for her knees when she was bad and having a fare up! God bless and yes love the dies too and the card, Shaz in Oz.x
