I'm Back!!!.....I think.

I can't believe it's been this long since I posted anything to my blog.  I had hand surgery in July.  I spent most of June preparing for the surgery...meaning, getting the house ready as I knew I wouldn't have the use of my right hand for a while.  Now, with August at an end I am almost fully recovered.  I still have a hard time picking and lifting things up with my right hand.  But, the hand is doing much better.  I can't believe how frustrating this has don't realize just how much you use your right hand until you can't!!! LOL!!!

To celebrate the return to the land of crafting, I thought I would make a card for the A Muse Studio Consultant Challenge for the month of August.  The theme for this month's challenge is "Hey Mister".  For me, coming up with a masculine card is's so natural for me to create flowery or cutsie cards.  

Here's the card I made:

It's an elongated card (8" x 4").  All of the images are from the Sea Shell stamp set.

I created the background using the coral image in Fern.  Then, I used Memento Tuxedo to stamp the other images.  Using Square Nesties Dies, I cut the images and the French Roast layers. I used Tombow Markers (850 Shell, 942 Latte, 912 Nutmeg) to color the images.  After putting the layers together, I finished off the card by adding some French Roast Pearls.

That's it for now.  Maybe I'll find some time to make some more masculine cards this evening.  

Hope everyone is having a fun and safe Labor Day weekend....where did the summer go??????
