Colored Bloom & personal update

     I wanted to take a moment, before I share today's card, and give you a personal update on my finger.  On New Year's Eve afternoon, I bumped my finger, and it fractured - pretty bad.  I went to see an orthopedist (who specializes in the hand) and found out there was a tumor in the bone (it made the bone so brittle, that is why it fractured from just a bump).  I ended up with a hard plastic splint for 9 weeks.  Then once the bone was basically healed, it was surgery to remove the tumor.  It took several more weeks for the break to heal (finally got the okay on May 30th), but the putty they put in the tumor's place is still not hardened and might not be for a year.  That aside, I've been in occupational therapy, at least 2x per week, since March 7th.  It's been painful, frustrating, and rewarding all at the same time.  After thousands of exercises, 2 different splints (worn for 15 min of every waking hour), hundreds of hours of therapy, and daily use of my hand - the finger STILL was not bending all the way, nor going straight.   Almost 2 weeks ago, when I last saw my doctor, he said that the scar tissue has fused the tendon to the bone, prohibiting the tendon from doing it's job - not allowing my finger to bend completely or stretch out straight.  So there is a reason for all my frustration.  This being the case, I am now having surgery to clean out all the scar tissue, thus freeing up the tendon to do it's job and, hopefully, give me movement back in my finger.  I'm having surgery today (probably as you read this).  I'm very nervous and stressed, but I know it's the next step.  I'm hoping therapy this time around isn't as long, but I'm also realistic and know, this WILL take time - and a lot of work.

WOW!  Time for some happy!


Gorgeous, isn't it?  I thought so!  I CASEd this card from Frenchie.  She just does the best cards!  The technique on the Blended Bloom is the emboss resist technique - colored in using sponge daubers.  This card looks like it's difficult, but it's really not.  We made this card in my Stampin' Nite class in June, and I have some beginner stampers who come.  Their cards looked like this one.  Easy!

RECIPE

CARD STOCK:  Pool Party, Wisteria Wonder, & Whisper White

INKS:  Soft Suede, So Saffron, Pool Party, & Wisteria Wonder  

STAMPS:  Blended Bloom, Summer Silhouettes, & Four You

TOOLS:  Heat Tool, Embossing Buddy, Clear (or White) Embossing Powder, Sponger Daubers, Paper Snips, & Dimensionals

4th of July Decor

     Yesterday I decided to break open my June Paper Pumpkin kit.  WOW!!! is all I can say!  That kit was loaded!  Paper to make 24 pinwheels (all precut and punched for quick pinwheel assembling) - 24 straws, 24 cello bags, 24 brads, 24 mini paper clips, 24 paper flags, 3 stamps, and 1 Stampin' Spot.  WOW!!!

     Well, I did not want to just make 24 pinwheels - seemed a little boring.  So I spent some time searching Pinterest and Facebook, and low and behold - ideas!

   

     I made this birthday banner for my son (his birthday is July 5th).  I CASEd the idea from Janet Wakeland.  It uses 6 pinwheels to make the whole project - including the two boxes (2 pinwheels each).  I used the banner punch and my e-cutter to cut out the letters.  I love how it turned out.


     I've seen pinwheel bouquets all over the place and knew I wanted to make one.  I used a small canning jar.  I made 6 pinwheels (3 on each side).  I cut little strips of card stock (Real Read, Whisper White, Night of Navy, & Smokey Slate) and crumbled each one up and put them in the jar to help hold up the pinwheels.

RECIPE

JUNE 2014 PAPER PUMPKIN KIT

CARD STOCK:  Real Red, Night of Navy, Whisper White, & Smokey Slate

STAMPS:  Sanded (retired) & Pinwheel Party (Paper Pumpkin Kit)

INKS:  Smokey Slate & Night of Navy

TOOLS:  Banner Punch, Paper Trimmer, Fast Fuse Adhesive
All from items from kit:  Brads, Glue Dots, Smokey Slate Baker's Twine, straws

Join my Pumpkin Patch


     I'm looking for at least 2 more people to join my Pumpkin Patch by June 30th!  I'd LOVE all of you to join!   Can I get 2 people to help me out?   If I can get 2 more members, I will earn a free stamp set from Stampin' Up!  This means all of you can create with a brand new stamps set before anyone else!


     What is my Pumpkin Patch you ask?  Well, everyone who purchases their Paper Pumpkin kits from me are part of my Pumpkin Patch.  I have a great welcome gift for everyone who joins.  Along with that, you get me!  I help with any questions you may have with any and all of the kits.  I also provide lots of ideas, outside of the intended plan for each kit.  What more could you ask for?

     Paper Pumpkin kits are perfect for the young crafter in your life.  They are perfect if you want to craft but don't have a ton of space to have a lot of crafting supplies or if you don't have a lot of time to craft.  These kits can be put together in 30 minutes or less and are perfect for all crafters - beginners to pros.

Check out the Paper Pumpkin kits for the last 5 months - including June.


     It's AMAZING what comes in each kit!  6-8 cards (with envelopes) or 5 gift bags or 24 pinwheels or a picture frame and 16 tags - and that's just the kits above!  All come with stamps (between 2-5) and 1 or 2 Stampin' Spots (mini ink pads).  Some come with Dimensionals or Glue Dots.  All you supply is the adhesive.  WOW!!!!  I've loved every kit so far!  I know you will too!
