Mine hasn't been to bad all things considered. I've been having some issues with my left hand and ended up needing a Cortisone shot to ease up the burning pain that I was having. I am however doing okay and hoping the shot will last for awhile. This is pretty much the same thing I went through last year with the Carpal Tunnel problems in my right hand so I'm pretty sure that sometime this year I'll probably be having another surgery.
But you didn't come here for that...So let's move on to today's Annabelle Sketch Challenge (absc13). When I first saw this sketch I was like...What am I going to do? I don't own any large heart punches or Dies so I opted to use a different shape for my card.
I love how soft and delicate this card looks.
As you can see from the sketch this weeks, "bling" is the Flourish part of the sketch and what could be more perfect for creating these lovely flourishes then the stamp set, (Flourishes) which shows you how you can add the perfect placement for your bling. On my card I decided to use it as a background stamp and only added a few gorgeous Blossom Pink Heart Sprinkles for my bling.
I also used the Rose trio stamp from (Flowers for You). I colored the flowers with markers and added some subtle sparkle to them with a Blossom pink Spica Glitter pen. My sentiment was computer generated.
