The week has flown by for me. Monday was the day I was in hospital to have x-ray guided injections to help the arthritis in my hands, and since Wednesday my hands have been totally pain free - for the first time in more than six months - in fact longer than I can actually remember. It is such a relief to be able to move my fingers again, and to find that I can do things again that for the last few months have been really difficult. I don't know how long the effects of this are likely to last, and I am meeting the consultant in approximately two months to discuss the way forward.
Saturday again, and for me today that is Sweet Stampin'. The challenge this week has been chosen by Alie, and we would like to see a photograph on your challenge entry. So, lots of opportunities for the scrappers out there.
So, on to my card. My photo is from Art Freebies, where you will find lots of lovely photographs, posters, and bits and pieces. I have printed it out in Greyscale only using the black cartridge, and it has given it a lovely soft finish. The papers are from Nitwits 'With this Ring'. I have used lace, a pink silk ribbon bow, flowers, and pearls to embellish the card. The heart borders and heart cut outs are Martha Stewart, and the sentiment is Lili of the Valley. The flowers and hearts have been glittered with Stickles. Why is it that black never looks black in my photos - this time it looks like navy blue!!
