I made a card

I managed to make a card without causing myself too much pain on my surgical hand.
It's amazing what we can accomplish with determination.

I coloured the Leane Creatief Landscape Church stamp with copics, this was quite easy one handed.
And I cut the dies using my elbow to hold down my cuttlebug while cutting.

This card I made in the morning before going in for the surgery and its for my brother in laws birthday at the end of this month.
I used a new stencil for the background thecraftersworkshop 6x6 mini tile texture 
The trees are from a Leane Creatief die set deer and trees,
The grass is a Fiskars border punch and the leaves the Martha Stewart punch Frond.
The owl digital stamp is from Just inked.

40th Anniversary

I've had carpal tunnel release surgery done on my left hand so there is no crafting for me for a while and its frustrating the heck out of me, I am not a fan of this sitting and doing nothing, I have new dies from Kaaren and I want to play with them.

This card (mde before we went away) is for a younger sister celebrating her 40th Wedding Anniversary tomorrow.
Spellbinders Heart dies was used as well as Cuttlebugs Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The flowers were made with the Die-namics Upsy Daisy die, leaves are the Fancy That Ghinko Flourish and also used was the Memory Box Chloe Stem.

Zipper card

Hello Everyone.
I've been away for a couple of weeks and meant to schedule this post before going away but it looks like I forgot to do it because I just found it in my drafts.
This is a card I made a little while back and my sister has now taken possession of.

The zipper die cut was sent to me by my friend Angie and I've filled it with some pom pom flowers designed by her as well.
The leaves and other dies used were the......
Siizzix Little leaves
Ivy is from the Marianne Creatables Bird and Ivy die set also cut for me by Angie.
Cotton Reel is from Die-namics sew nifty die set
and the lavender is from the Marianne Creatables Decorative Elements.
I made a little pin cushion to finish.
