Some news and a Challenge

Hi, sorry I haven't posted much lately. Last week I was scrubbing a spot on the carpet and my ring finger got caught back and I torn the tendon . It made a loud popping noise and I thought I had broke it. The doctor said not broken but a torn tendon. Now I have to wear this gorgeous (not) metal brace until I can get it repaired. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to color at all but I was able to, just a little awkward .
Now on to much better news, you may have heard that my daughter Theresa Momber made it on this years DT on Spellbinders!! I was so excited for her. Congratulations again Theresa!!! You rock!!!

Here is the card I made. This is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #156. Beate has ask that we make a card and use some red on it. I used Flourishes stamp set "Sweet Violets" and colored with Copic's. Die is by Spellbinders and the punch is M.S. DP is by Basic Grey and card stock is GKD.



Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Geri, What a gorgeous card. Fabulous coloring and I love your b/g papers. Just beautiful. Congrats to your daughter. I wrote to her this morning, but I had no idea you were her Mom, very proud Mom I'm sure. It must be wonderful to have the same interests and talent as your daughter. Mine wants no part of crafting. Well have a grat weekend.
