I'm just popping in to let you know that I haven't fallen off the edge of the planet. I underwent a total right knee replacement a bit over a week ago and I'm now home recovering and doing my rehab. The operation all went to plan, but it will be while before I will be fully back to normal with my crafting activities. It is amazingly limiting using crutches as you can't carry anything and I can't stay sitting in one position for very long.
Anyway, I thought I would share some cards I have made and not blogged. I would like to have been super organised and have posts scheduled, but I was very focused on cooking up a storm so we would have lots of easy, nourishing meals available while I'm not very mobile.
I borrowed the retired 'Merry Mice' stamp set off a friend a while ago and I stamped some of the cute images. This one has been coloured with Copic markers and I added a narrow border of Cherry Cobbler card stock.
The base card is Cherry Cobbler and I've added some of the holly design from the retired 'Presents & Pinecones' DSP at each end and a panel of Crumb Cake embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic embossing folder in between. A little trim of Gold Glimmer covers the join and a double bow of Cherry Cobbler Baker's twine finishes it off.
Here is a close-up of the finished art panel. For the inside, I have a mat of Emerald Envy and added some of the coordinating Presents & Pinecones washi at the bottom for a simple finish.
