Thanks everyone for the well-wishes. The thumb is doing great. I think I might be able to shed the band aid in another day or so! *woohooo*
Although my first stamping injury was not until the last day of the year, let me assure you that I have suffered my fair share of pain (usually because I was being careless!). My favorite Duh! injury was a few years ago when I was making cookies and talking on the phone. I went to take the cookies out of the oven and I opened the oven door with the mitted hand and grabbed the cookie sheet with the unmitted one. OUCH! I was so shocked that I had done that--it took me a few seconds to drop the pan on the floor. Yep, that one took awhile to recover from...
My friend Melanie is having a huge anniversary celebration on her blog this week. She has been a designer for Gina K for a year and is throwing a party to celebrate! Check it out for lots of inspiration and give-aways!
Melanie asked a few of her friends to help spread the word by using our favorite set that she designed. I really could not pick a favorite set--they are all so wonderful and CLEVER!
I went with A Year of Flowers because it was my favorite at the time I went to create a card (giggle!) Here is my card:
I stamped the flowers on watercolor paper and painted with reinkers. Then, I cut the flowers out and arranged them. I layered two roses on top of each other for depth and stamped an extra sunflower to cut out and raise the center part. I painted the other flower blue because I felt like it. (I have no idea what kind of flower that is but I like it blue!)
I used my trusty Scor-Pal to create the grid pattern in the background.
Here is a close up of the dimension of the flowers. Congratulations on your wonderful milestone, Mel! Love ya!
