Christmas Stampin All Year Long Challenge #5 (02-23-09)


Hey Friends! I'm posting this a bit later because I needed to give the release of Pink Cat Studio "Enchanted Lily" the spotlight for a little while. Scroll down to my previous post to check out the awesome Pink Cat Studio "Enchanted Lily" stamp set released today.

Well, it's Christmas Stampin All Year Long challenge #5! Whoohoo! This week there's an additional element. . .it's a color combo challenge. Stop by "Christmas Stampin All Year Long" blog site to check out the sketch and the color combo challenge and to check the fabulous samples created by the challenge divas!
Thank you for all the well wishes in regards to my injured wrist. Gosh, it feels so much better today. I had slipped and landed on my hand to brace myself. Initially, it hurt but I didn't think nothing of it but an hour or so later, I began to have shooting pain whenever I moved my hand.

It began to swell a bit and began affecting the movement of my fingers so I put my wrist in a splint to restrict the movement and reduce the pain.

Towards the evening, I think the splint was making things worse. . my hand began to throb but when I removed the splint, the throbbing stopped. This morning when I woke up, the swelling was reduced and movement of my hand is not as painful. Yay!! I'm able to move my fingers and typing isn't too painful. . . .just forward and backward movements hurt but I can live with that. Again, thank you . . .you all are so sweet and wonderful.



Anyway, just a little bit about my card. This stamp set is an old Stampin' Up stamp set. I thought it was a fun image to play with considering I haven't used it for over a year.

I stamped the image twice and remounted the image with foam tape. I also added a bit of SU Crystal Effects and Stickles to the image.

Anyway, hope you'll play along in this week's challenge!!

Card Details:

Stamp: Stampin Up
Paper: DCWV designer paper, SU Bliss Blue, Lavendar Lace (I think)
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: SU Crystal Effects, Stickles, Basic Basic Ribbon, Buttons (?)

Good to see you are back up and running again. I get a gammy wrist sometimes but that is because I'm at the laptop all the time.

Hmm, that reminds me, I must get off more often and do some crafting.
