Feather Note

Hi there!  Mind if I show you a super-simple card, made in the earliest days after my surgery in June?  Back then, I could barely crawl to the attic studio, and found it difficult to sit with my foot down for more than a half hour.


What made this card easy:  a lovely K & Co. sticker, mounted on a die cut gray rectangle just sitting in my scraps basket.  Love this sentiment from Cute Circles by Inspired By Stamping, and the fact that it's vertical.  Sometimes you need a stacked sentiment, and not a horizontal one.  (Ooooh, darn!  My sticker is coming up on one corner!  Oh, the things you notice after you photograph something....)


Thank the good Lord I am making progress week by week.  Though it is sometimes painful learning to walk again, I know the day will come soon enough when I can get around without crutches and that awful, awful boot.  Can't wait!



Stamps: Cute Circles - Inspired By Stamping Paper: Going Gray, Pale Plum - SU Ink: Versafine Onyx Black - Tsukineko Accessories & Tools: Bracket border punch - EK Success; Deckled Edge Rectangle die - Spellbinders; sticker - K & Co.

This card is proof that simple can be elegant and beautiful as well. And if you hadn't mentioned the sticker I would have thought it was the design!

Such a pretty feather card, Colleen. Yes, the camera tends to magnifies every little thing.
I have worn one of those boots several times....always in the hot summer months. Ugh!

Hi sweetie! I hope you continue to heal and pray it is rapid! This card is simply gorgeous! I need to tell you that you influenced me to try a more CAS style. I have so much to learn but I am enjoying the journey. Take care my dear, and rest so you can heal!
