Happy to be Back....

It's been awhile since I've been able to stamps.  Had an accident mid month and hurt my neck & arm so no stamping.  Now I have to limit my time at my desk, but at least I can slowly make some cards.  If there are typos in my posts please be gentle - I'm trying with only 1 hand!!

This is the card I had started the week of my accident - it was for Bellariffic Friday Sketch 21 on October 19.  I had inked up BeeDay Huggabugg from Stamping Bella and had it coloured but didn't have the card put together - finally it's all together.


The image is stamped on watercolour paper with black versafine ink then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I coloured the image using distress markers and a watercolour brush.  The present is paper pieced on (good thing it was cut out before the accident - don't think I could do that now!).  I added some glitter to her wings.  Then shading around the image is done with squeezed lemonade distress ink.  The ds paper is EP's Everyday Eclectic.


You still have time to play along with this weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge which is to add snow to your card.  Email your card to Em by Thurs to be included on Bloggabella on Friday.

I must confess there was a lot of backspacing on this post - I've only been using my Ipad or Iphone for emails and I keep hitting the space bar for the period on the computer- doesn't work!  And after a period it doesn't automatically put in the capital letter.  How quickly we adapt to habits!!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!!
