Merry and Bright and a Blog Break

Hi there! I just wanted to let you know I am taking a bit of a break from cardmaking and blogging as I have problems with my arm and shoulder.  I can hardly lift my right arm and every movement is painful. I went to the Physio a few days ago and I thought it was on the mend, but today it's worse again. So I must be sensible and stay away from the computer and craft table until it is better. I will probably need a cortisone injection next week. My priority is to get better for our overseas trip which is just over 3 weeks away.

I made this card for fun last week. Not sure if it fits any challenges, but I thought I'd share it anyway.

This was an experiment. I tried it at first with distress markers, but because the stag stamp is patterned(nordic style) , it didn't work very well,  so then I tried Twinkling H2Os. I quite like the result, but they don't blend like distress markers, so I make have to continue the experimentation.  The stag stamp is from Docrafts and the sentiment is from Kaisercraft.

I also want to remind you about this months Mixed Media Card Challenge - the challenge is Christmas with an option to include bells. You have until 25 November to enter and there is a prize from STAMPlorations!


  1. Now that is a bright card! The colours are perfect for the sentiment.
    Sorry to hear about your arm. It sounds very similar to what happened to me 3 years ago. I had an injection in my shoulder and could feel some improvement straight away then 4 weeks in England also helped. I hope you enjoy your trip as much as we did!

  2. Love the colorful deer :) beautiful card !

  3. Awesome card :) I hope your shoulder heals quickly.
