It seems like forever since I've posted or been around to visit everyone. My eyes have been holding me back from doing a lot because of the headaches and blurry vision. Things are finally looking up! I saw a specialist last Tuesday in KC and there is nothing detatched from the retina in my right eye. YAHOO!!! Once I get my new glasses, which should be by next Friday, things will be better. Just need to keep watching the right eye and go back for another check up in a month to make sure all is well. I'm using lubricated drops in the left eye (recommended by specialist) which has helped tremendously with the floaters, now don't ask me why, but who cares if works, right!
My card was created for three challenges this week:
SCAD, Friends With Heart - use paper piecing and one of their images
Wild Orchid Crafts - sketch and at least one of their products
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes #118
The image is from SCAD named "New Beginnings". With a new great-grandbaby on the way I'm kindda into baby things right now...... The image is paper pieced with scraps from my drawer and that not pieced is colored with Copics. Added Glossy Accents to her shoes for that black patent look. I've had the vellum paper for heavens knows how long and no idea where it came from. I do know I've haven't seen any like this for a very long time as it is embossed by the manufacturer. If any of you know where this type of vellum can be found I'd sure appreciate it if you'd let me know. Here is a closer look at the image.
The sketch is from WOC and I've added so much to it not sure you can see the sketch....Just can't seem to get enough foo foo...LOL I decided to make my first shadow box for the image and not really happy with the way it turned out but I spent so much time trying to figure it out I was going to use it anyway. All of the flowers, stick pins, and the lace are from WOC Store with MS branch punch for greenery. I truly liked this sketch!
There are so many gorgeous entries at Crafty Creations Challenges and it's a fantastic challenge blog so check it out when you get time. Lots of inspiration there and so many fantastic designers.
Well, that's it for me today folks. Going to try and play again today in the craftroom and see what damage I can do down there. Thanks so much for stopping by and I sure hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I make sure to stop by and visit to see what's new with you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
