Praying for you

 I am using more of the die cut stickers I picked up at Hobby Lobby awhile back for my card today.


  • Paper studio - Die cut stickers
  • ODBD - Mini tag sentiment stamp
  • Ribbon


Doctor report yesterday is that my foot is coming along good, I still have a lot of swelling, especially at the joint so he said at least 2 more if not 3 more weeks in the boot to keep everything stabilized.  He will see me again in 3 weeks. I am just to keep doing what I have been, do as much as I want but as soon as I start feeling the pain, up my foot goes to relieve the swelling.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Wonderful Birthday

 I received a bunch of stamped images from Birgit to color while I am recovering from my foot surgery and I have been busy coloring them :)  If they work for the upcoming birthday or other cards I need I will be making them into cards.  This one is going to my girlfriend that loves succulents, I am not sure what kind of flowers these are supposed to be but I colored some of them as succulents and hope that is what she thinks they are, my hubby wasn't so sure ;)


I added a birthday sticker to it, and some nuvo drops on the stamens. Popped it up on some foam tape and attached it to a piece of paper that looks like watercolor.


It feels good to be back in my craft room and hubby took me on a little longer drive yesterday since I can keep my foot down for a longer period of time.  So good to feel like things are getting back to normal.

Hope your week is off to a great start too!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Bird in nest

 Before my surgery I bought some cheese cloth, I have seen many use it in their creations and I thought why not give it a try, it took Esther sending me this sweet bird already colored and ready to use to give it a try, I inked it up with a few colors of my distress inks and pulled it apart and then bunched it up again and glued it to a piece of packaging from a recent order.


I added a border I punched from a Martha Stewart punch and added some Black enamel accents to the centers.  That is the same stuff that I usually use for my birds eyes but I see Esther uses a little gem, I will have to remember that for my next birds I do :)  The sentiment circle is another Martha Stewart punch and I stamped the sentiment.



Update, I have been able to sit in my craft room for 30 minutes at a time now, for the past two days, not too much pain when sitting, I just get a burning feeling in my big toe after that much time so I come back out in the living room and put my foot up, getting excited that I have seen big improvement this week, a month after my surgery.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Flowers for you

 These flowers were given to me from a long time friend in my craft group.  The backs of them had a pattern on them so I think they were from a pattern paper pack, but they colored up nicely I thought.



I stamped my sentiment on a Martha Stewart tag and then colored the top and added some nuvo crystal glaze.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

Flowers and Bees

 It sure doesn't take the insects long to come out after it starts warming up does it.  I have been touched by a few friends here and from blog land that gave me a few goodies to help me with my cardmaking while I am recovering from my foot surgery.

A friend from Church gave me a few calendars she had as she knows I use them to make envelopes.  And today I am sharing one of the die cuts that Esther friend from my blog sent.  These little images were from the calendars I cut up for envelopes and the doily is from Esther.


I am able to go in my craft room for at least 5 minutes at a time right now, hubby is trying to figure out a way that we can move things around to make it easier on me, so I will be soon getting in my room and have a little more access to things.


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
