Juicy Lucy - Gingersnap Creations Challenge 17 - Citrus

Hey Peeps,

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!

What?

Excitement?

Yah!!!!!

I managed to make a card today....using my right hand too!!!! It hurted a little bit but I had my wrist support on so it was ok.







Over on the fabulous Gingersnap Creations there is a brand new challenge - I love challenges but rarely get the chance to join in, so armed with my new hand and some bright coloured ProMarkers, I set to making a card. The stamped image is a Paula Best by Stamps Happen, I fell in love with this stamp the minute I saw it and had to have it, and it was my birthday that day, what an excuse eh?




The backing cardstock is a huge 8" square card..I love this size cos I can fit more on to it LOL The papers are Basic Grey Lime Rickey - I only have the 6" pad...sob...but that is better than nowt I guess. I added some juicy coloured ribbon and a little charm and then made a phrase using a Hero Art stamp and a couple of brads.




Finishing touches were sanding the DCWV cardstock, curling the corner (bad habit I have there) and making a bloom embellishment.




Thanks for looking! I am seriously hoping that the hand is truly recovering cos that means I will be crafting daft very soon!

Hi Hels
Thank you for your kind comments on my blog! I love these cards - the colours are so bright and summery and the flowers are lush! We could do with some brightening up at the moment with all the rain we've had! By the way, I was lucky enough to win one of the sketch challenges on the Craft Stamper blog a couple of months ago and guess what I won - a set of your Stitchells stamps!!
Regards
Angela xx
