 I made this card last Thursday to distract myself from upcoming knee surgery and because I needed a card for some friends anniversary. The sentiment is from Picket Fence Studios and was one I won from Angie's blog. I combined the colour and ways to use it challenges on it and today I learned it was chosen by Jeanne as her favorite last week.

 The knee surgery looks to have been successful. I am waiting for the swelling and soreness to subside to be certain of this but removing the scar tissue seems to have helped the joint move better.

Julie Hickey Class

Julie Hickey Class

Went to a fun class today and made 3 cards. The first one was a moving card and Julie led us through it so we all ended up with the same design just in a variety of colours. Lots of sponging, stamping, cutting, folding and sticking.

Our 2nd and 3rd cards were free form - we could use any of the Distress Oxides, any of Julie's stamp she had there and come up with our own designs, with guidance where necessary. Both of these I finished at home this evening

 Thanks for looking

Christmas in March a bit late

I am still working on my March Christmas cards for CCCMar19 at Splitcoaststampers. Our March theme is Bundle up!! It’s cold outside! Let’s see mittens, warmth, etc.!
Some of my cards have not met the brief but I think these 3 do. 

The first card uses a digital image from Connie Fong

The following cards both use LOTV images which are available as stamps or digis. 

All the cards were coloured with Copics and use papers, dies and punches from my stash.

Farewell Ryan

Our nephew has flown to Spain today for a time, and this was the card I made him to wish him safe travels.

The image is from Sassy Cheryl and is called A Wing and a Prayer. Hopefully the flight was not that and he has arrived safely. I coloured it with Copics and created a message on the PC. I sponged the clouds in the background with Memento ink.

AND for dessert, a Touch of LACE!

I skipped the dessert but I have 3 cards to share. The first two with alcohol inks and the alcohol lift ink and then the last one stamped and coloured with Copics. I used an inked embossing folding on the background of the first one.
