Welcome to another installment of the Friday's Bloggers Challenge Group. - I wasn't sure if I'd participate this week. It's been a rather trying week for me. I had a Nerve Conduction test done on Monday and found out that I do indeed have Carpal Tunnel in my right wrist. I'd have a fairly good week last week with little or no pain and very limited tingling in my fingers at night so I was able to sleep decent almost all week long. Tuesday arrived an I had Bowling League. Well needless to say in spite of bowling so well (I had a 225 game!!!) my hand just doesn't handle the after effects and I was up almost all night again on Tuesday and pretty much the same on Wednesday night. Due to lack of sleep and the fact that my fingers are going numb all the time I just didn't know if I could stamp much but thankfully I managed to get a card done to share. Our cards are based on the above sketch (sorry I couldn't get it larger). I did reverse the sketch to fit my card idea but it's still the same sketch.
Once again I chose to use the new SU set, (Cheep Talk) for my card. This time I went with a base of Chocolate Chip that I layered with Kiwi Kiss embossed with the Distressed Stripes embossing folder and brayered lightly with Kiwi Kiss Ink. Then I added a piece of the Good Morning Sunshine Designer Series paper and a ribbon/bow of Alpine Orginials Felt ribbon (SU Holiday 08 Mini) that I purchased and just never got around to using. I stamped the sentiment in Chocolate Chip ink and then pierced under it to high light the sentiment. I stamped the branch in Kiwi Kiss ink and the small bird in Pacific Point ink. Then I added the Pear in Summer Sun ink. I added 3 light yellow dew drops as well. This was layered on a scallop circle of Summer Sun card stock. Then I stamped the larger bird with Pacific Point ink, maked it and sponges an oval of grass with Kiwi Kiss ink. I pierced the corners and layered this to a piece of Chocolate Chip cs. Both the focal images were raised using foam mounting tape.
So now it's your turn to check out the other members projects by clicking on the Bloggers Icon on my sidebar. - I need to go ice my hand now and hopefully get some sleep. Take care and have a great weekend.
