Can't Keep a SU Demonstrator down!

I just couldn't help myself!  I have been visiting Brian King's blog quite frequently during my recovery period and the past two days I have found myself motivated to get my fingers inky!  If you haven't checked it out ...!

For this card I grabbed some Early Expresso and Crumb Cake paper and ink.  I knew that I wanted to play with the color combination.  I remember seeing Fabulous Florets stamped in similar colors on Stampin Connection.  I only wish that I had some wide ribbon in Early Expresso as the Chocolate Chip is a bit off.  What do you think?

Yes ... I have to stand to stamp since I can't look down!  I just had to get inky!!


Triple Time Stamping Technique using Everything Eleanor and in Midnight Muse / Crumb Cake and Black / Pretty in Pink

Dear Friends,
    I am so blessed to find that you haven't left me!  It has just not been my year!  As I found myself healing from shoulder surgery that I had at the end of November I began looking forward to moving forward with my Stampin' Up business.  My body had other plans.  The shooting pains and numbness returned in my arms and fingers sending me back to the neurosurgeon who confirmed another necessary surgery.  I had cervical disk fusion in 2005 that did not fuse and thus caused problems in a couple of other levels.  In June I had another multi - level fusion done and my body seems to be rejecting the manufactured bone that they used.  I have been in a brace for over six weeks!!
    Two days ago I decided that the only thing that would make me feel better was to stamp ... but oh where to begin?  I found myself visiting a favorite blog Stamp and Scrap with Frenchie  I fell in love with her Triple Time Stamping card she shared and decided to 'get my feet wet' by CASEing her!  I am sharing the results with you!
      Thank you for your continued support!
