Snippet Snippets Card 01/2019 - Thank You

Hello and Happy Sunday,

Some of you will know from Facebook that I had an appointment with my dentist this week to have a back molar checked out. I won't go into the gory details - suffice to say after removal of the offending tooth I had to go to the Maxillofacial department in hospital for further treatment. I'm now missing a  a piece of my jawbone and there's a wee hole through to my sinus but that will heal in time. No permanent damage done and I'm recovering nicely now but it's been a tough few days. Of course, no crafting whatsoever has been done since. And with my husband due to have an operation on Wednesday I don't foresee being able to craft much at all for quite a while. However, all is not lost. I have a few 'Blue Peter' projects completed but not posted - standbys to be shared so I won't be completely absent from blogland. Starting with this thank you card.

This was my contribution to the January challenge for UKPC which was to make a 'thank you' card.

Supplies used:

- A6 white card blank used landscape format
- a piece of shaving foam patterned card for topper base - colours used red and gold shimmer sprays
- stamps - Rare Earth Spring stamp set - free with Issue 130 from Papercrafter
- embossing powders American Crafts Zing opaque Rose and Wow Magenta Twinkle
- ink pads - Versamark, Memories Black
- ProMarkers in shades of green, pink, yellow, lavender and peach
cardstock - scraps of white for stamping flowers and butterfly; deep pink card for greeting
die - Docrafts Mini Sentiment 'Thank You'
- adhesives - DS tape, Glue Gel
- tools - decoupage scissors, small die-cutting machine

Here's two close-ups showing the dimension created with the stamped and cut out flowers and the embossed butterfly.

I really enjoy stamping, colouring and cutting out the images - very therapeutic. And it was also very satisfying to use up the piece of shaving foam treated card - and it smelled gorgeous too!

I'm submitting the card to Pixie's Snippets Playground - a lot of snippets went into the making of those flowers.

Thanks for visiting - it's much appreciated. I hope eventually to be able to get back to my desk and do some new craft projects, when the EM and I are both much better, but in the meantime I'll keep posting projects in true 'here's one I made earlier' style periodically till then.

Have a wonderful week.

What a beautiful card Elizabeth! Wonderful colouring and your fussy cutting is perfect! As you say, card making can be so therapeutic. Poor you with that tooth. I believe it's not uncommon and does heal well but not what you need right now. Hope Alan's operation goes well - a know friends who've had the same and not looked back since! And then, let's hope you have a spell without any more hospital!
