Cards I received....

My fingers are still killing me so I haven't made anything new...although I did finally receive my circle cutter and was playing around with that until I cut myself because my taped up sprained fingers got in the way when I was trying to remove the safety blade casing. So now I have 3 bandaged fingers instead of two. I figured under the circumstances I would feature some cards that I received rather than ones I am not able to make with my bum fingers....

I received two cards in the mail today from my upline's upline Kate Deignan. One is a sample and one is my first birthday card to arrive. My birthday is St. Patrick's Day so these are definately both appropriate for me, especially the Shamrock card made from the SAB set Polka Dot Punches. Kate also used the so saffron grosgrain ribbon from the SAB ribbon bundle for my birthday card. These items are so versatile and you can get them free with a $50 purchase until March 31st.

Thanks for the great cards Kate!

I'm back...slightly injured but still stampin...

So sorry, I have not posted in a while. I tripped over my own two feet and sprained my fingers. My two end fingers on my right hand are taped and immobilized. Here is a quick and easy card...very minimal stamping since I can't hold anything slender like a marker, aquapen...etc. But I could crank my BigShot.

Recipe: Cute & Curly stamp set, Bigz XL Movers and Shapers Curly Label die, Impressions Textures Background Small Dots, Curly Label punch, Baja Breeze ink and Cardstock, stampin sponge, dimensionals, Parisian Breeze DSP, Sahara Sand and Whisper White Cardstock, Eyelet Border Punch, Pretties Kit

Happiness is a Journey....

Here is a card that I was requisitioned to make for my manager's friends 50th birthday. I think these color combinations are very manly! This was the first time I have actually used this stamp. Trains always remind me of my father because he collected model trains as a child.
