Stamping again and doing some challenges

 Scoll down for the card challenges....

I am SO HAPPY to finally be healed up and mobile a little. After breaking my wrist and ankle 7 weeks ago it's about time.  To be totally helpless is a terrible feeling, especially when you can't even stamp!  GASP!  At least my husband thinks stamping is great therapy for my right hand so I have been doing quite a bit.  At least hanging out in my stamp room watching what I want on TV instead of his constant channel surfing.  I have to be honest though, he was great taking care of my when I was totally useless.  I mean taking 4 weeks vacation to play CNA really shows he loves me!  In case you ever wondered what they do with people who break and arm and a leg, this is how they fixed me up.  My right elbow is resting on a platform and strapped on.  Oh and that's Doogan laying on the floor...please ignore the fat legs too.

Anyway, I did a couple challenges in one card AGAIN.  I am so proud of myself.
This is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge which was a sketch this week.  This also qualifies for the OCC Corner Spruce Up challenge here to spruce up the corners of your card. 
I used the Willow's Hot Chicken Soup stamp and some K & Company DP and SU mellow moss card stock, Cuttlebug folder and Sissix corner die cut, Spellbinder labels and a couple Martha Steward punches.  I colored Willow with Copics and sponges the edges with brown ink.  For Willows hair barrette I used a brad.  Now someone just has to get sick so I can send it out.  (really I hope not!)

1) your legs ARE NOT FAT! they look hot and fantastic!
2) you have become my main source of inspiration and I thank you for that more than you will know! (even though unfortunately it is a result of your horrible accident)
3) if you were to send me a card i would treasure it always and remember you forever as my inspiration on my road to recovery!
4) do you still have that horse?

be sure to send me your addy too and I'll send you smiles on paper! (i DO want to send you something FANTASTIC though, so I may have to pull something pre-accident cause i have NOT stamped a thing in over 5 weeks!!)

THANK YOU!
