The journey of life is best shared with a friend, and I am truly grateful for all the wonderful friends in my life. My sweet husband, my girlfriends, and so many others all play an important role in my journey of life. My card today celebrates all my wonderful friends.
The new annual Stampin’ Up! Catalogue has two new embossing powders; Shimmer Black and Shimmer White. Today I decided to play with the Shimmer White, and it is magnificent. I have never embossed one of our DistINKtive stamps, so decided to give it a try. While some of the unique shading is lost doing this, it gave me the perfect opportunity to add some highlights.
So here is my story. While skiing in March I fell and sprained my thumb. It seemed to take a long time to heal, and is still rather weak, but I didn’t think too much of it. I recently found out I have a torn ligament. The extent of the damage isn’t known yet, I have to go for an MRI, but it may need surgery to fix. On the bright side, the doctor couldn’t believe I’m not in great pain, which thankfully I am not. However it they did give me a splint which I am to wear all the time. Did I mention that this is on my right hand? How will I stamp???
It’s summer and the birds are everywhere, enjoying my bird feeders, and the trees in the yard. The cute bird in my card today is on one of the pieces of Designer Series paper from the Bird Ballad Suite of products. This is a whole suite of wonderful items so watch for more of these in upcoming cards.
