So I'm a bit slow . . .

at posting the card that I said I'd post last week. Here it is now though. I stamped Vivian on the back of a printable transparency with Staz-On and then colored her in with my souffle markers. After she dried, I trimmed her and flipped her over and what you see in the picture is what you get. I used my clear My Sentiments Exactly Multi-Retro alphabet to make the word on the tag and stamped it with Colorbox Frost White pigment ink. I hand drew the web with a Signo gel pen. I'm pretty pleased with how this card turned out. Yes, it is out of season, but I'm thinking ahead.

Yes, I've been missing for the last month or so. I injured my arm last month--dislocated my elbow and shattered the head of my raidius. A week after the injury, I had to have surgery to piece the radial head back together. Lucky me. Now I have two metal plates and a bunch of pins in my elbow. Going through security at the airport will be a blast now. For about the last month, I've been in a cast and sling. However, last week, I got my cast removed and now I'm doing physical therapy so that I can gain back the mobility in my arm.
Anyhow, card making has been impossible. Typing one-handed was slow and ineffecient. I'm back now. I haven't made a card yet. It will probably take some more PT before I can manage that. However, I do have one card to post that I made prior to all of this arm drama. I'll post it later today (I have a PT appointment soon). I just wanted to make a quick note that in "honor" of my elbow injury, we're giving 15% off all sentiment stamps at our webstore. Be sure to check it out.
