I've been busy, but I re-charge by stamping out sets in various places, Get Well, Encouragement, Miscellaneous, etc. I love love love the Tim Holtz grid blocks. I've also made a big dent in my stack of unmounted stamps, I believe I'm down to five. I've also been peeling foam backing off a lot of ones I did years ago and replacing it with Aleene's Tack It Over & Over glue.

I had a bit of a scare on Friday, my right hand decided not to co-operate for about a minute.Which required a trip to the hospital for a couple of scans. They aren't sure what happened. I decided not to let that put me off crafting though, and I came up with the following cards earlier this week.

Puppet in a card. With a tutorial on how I change a stationary image into a moveable one. I was especially pleased with this one.

Eileen Fahleens aka Iron Filings. Another favorite with handy dandy construction hints. They both went into my slew of monsters gift bag for one of my friends.

To see more crafty spaces, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander at crafty desks around the world.

We crafters rely on our hands so much so it would be scary to have one hand not work, so glad its back to work again.

Oh, I do hope you have no further episodes of hand "disobedience" and can continue to make super cards like the dinosaur.

What fun cards - and what a lot of sorting you have managed. Well done. Trust the hand is now fully recovered, and hope nothing serious is going on.
Take care. God bless.

oooh that was scary! About your hand I mean. I hope it doesn't happen again.
Yes, the dinosaure is scary too. Thanks for showing us how to do that. (I looked at the link).
Thank you for letting me peep over your shoulder.

That's a bit scary, maybe you did to much and it cramped and refused to work. I did that with my hand earlier this year it was weird when the hand cramped closed it was very painful. I hope this never happens again for you.

I love your cards, good to get things created regardless.

Have a great week

That must have been very scary, what happened with your hand. I hope they get to the bottom of it and that it is not a recurring problem. That dinosoar card is just adorable, and the fact it is moveable is perfect!

Happy belated WOYWW,
