Some of my work over the last 6 months

I have been away a long time and I thought I would post some of the creative work I have done.

My creative take on Tim's October tag

Holy cow it's been a long time since I have posted anything on my blog.  lots has happened in the last 6 months.  My beautiful daughter is pregnant with our first grandchild. It just happens that God has blessed us with a little granddaughter who's name will be Stella.  She is due the 16th of January. We couldn't be happier!!!

I've also had thumb/wrist surgery.  as I type I am in a cast.  4 weeks done and 1 more to go!!!  even though it's a pretty pink cast, I am ready to move on to physio and working hard to get it back to a state that is pain free.  I hear the total recovery time can take a year.

The cast hasn't stopped me from scrapping though.  I was inspired by Tim Holtz' Oct tag of the month to get out the distress glitter.  -I mean really, a cast couldn't keep me away from working with glitter right?  I didn't have the dies he used for his tag, so I glittered up this flower.  It's hard to see just how pretty the glitter made the flower because the light isn't the greatest right now but I'm sure you get the idea.  I used Tim Holtz' simple sayings stamps at the bottom.  I stamped it using distress paint and I really like the effect
