My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

4 October 2010

Its Your Birthday!

Afternoon crafters, I hope you are all well and enjoying today's sunshine - I mean what a complete difference from yesterday!

Firstly I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has sent me get well wishes and virtual hugs after my op last week - I am feeling much better today, still can't walk very fast or bend my knee, but things are looking up.

So thought I would do a quick post before taking a gentle stroll down the road to collect my daughter from school. Yes I have managed to make a card, the second in a week - OMG I hear you say! LOL.

I have found a way to sit at my desk with my leg propped up on one of my crafting boxes, not very dignified, but it works for me!

This card is for my Step Daughter Danielle's 14th Birthday which is tomorrow.

I have taken another shot at a different angle as the pesky mirri card shows me taking the photo!

I'm entering this into the following challenges:-

For this card I used:-

  • CC Designs Cherry Emma Stamp
  • PM Capsule Collection Heather Papers
  • Kanban Mirri Card with Punch
  • Cardstock from Stash
  • Hobbycraft Gems
  • Kaisercraft Flowers with Stickles
  • Computer Generated Greeting

Thanks for stopping by today, its good to be back showcasing some work and hope that I can manage to make some more this week. Enjoy the rest of your day.
