This post will probably be short as I am typing this one handed and with my nondominant hand! I underwent hand surgery earlier today to have pins removed from a finger on my right hand. Due to erosive arthritis, which insists upon eating away the cartilage in the joints of my fingers, I had one of my finger joints fused last summer to eliminate the severe pain and gross swelling I was experiencing in this finger. I am going to be one handed for about a week since my entire hand, except for my thumb, is encased in a surgical bandage. Needless to say, this really hampers my ability to stamp. Oh, we stampers. Is that all we think about? LOL!! Apparently so because my husband tells me one of the first sentences out of my mouth in the recovery room was "I think I'll be able to manipulate card stock!" He about died laughing!
Anywhooo, I had about 20 minutes before I left for the hospital this morning to make this quick and easy card for the color challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The colors we had to use were Ballet Blue, Cameo Coral, and Garden Green. I colored my Penny Black Blush image with Stampin' Up markers and water misted the stamp for a watercolored effect. I like the simple, understated effect for this card.
I hope to be back here and there with short posts until I'm back in the stamping groove! In the meantime, I'll be blurfing and surfing my favorite sites and, hopefully making some new discoveries and friends along the way. Maybe you can tell me one or more of your favorite stamping/blogging discoveries.
Thanks for stopping by today! I'd love to hear from you.
