Just Because

Hello all! I know, things are still very slow around here, my blog (It sure doesn't feel that way here at my house though). I would like to thank you all for bearing with me. Here's an update... I've been having issues with my wrist lately and have recently found out that the pain I've been having was due to Tendinitis of the wrist. Thankfully it is healing quickly and I am not having any more pain when I work and create. My wrist is almost back to normal, yeah!

Anyways, on to today's card... This is a super simple card that I had whipped up quite some time ago. I've submitted it to magazines, but it never got picked up. So it's been patiently waiting for me to share it with you.
Attached two strips of Plum Pudding ribbon to a Kraft card base. Die cut three tea cups and stamped the coordinating tea cup image in Plum Pudding, Spring Rain & Simply Chartreuse. Stacked and attached the cups, with dimensional adhesive, to a white cardstock strip. Stamped the cardstock strip with a sentiment from Asian Fusion and attached to the card base with dimensional adhesive.

That's it from me today, thanks for stopping by!

  7. I always love how you do that with the ribbon. I am glad that you are healing. My hubby has had that and is not fun...but is never fun to be in any kind of pain.

  11. Cute card - I like the colour combo! Good luck with your wrist. I've been struggling with tendonitis in both my legs (from my ankles to midway up my calves). My life now involves a lot of Advil and IcyHot cream!

  13. Get better soon, unfortunately those kinds of injuries need rest, not ideal for a papercrafter. Love the card particularly the colours.

  14. Darling card, love it!! I would have chosen it! Take care of that wrist, stuff like that scares me, since we are all in this crafty business and use our hands so much!

  21. Great clean and simple design!

    I had tendonitis years ago in my wrist and elbow and it was bad. I thought my arm would be numb for the rest of my life. The problem tends to flair up when you overuse it, so take care.
