Lots of 'Um

This is for the Color, Way to Use It, Queen for the Day, and the Inspirational Challenges. Yep 4 challenges in one card. There is a reason for this -- I haven't stamped all week. I hurt my shoulder a few weeks ago, and I am having a difficult time using my right arm. Every time I try and use my mouse -- the computer one ;o)-- I am in terrible pain. So I haven't blurfed very much at all this week. I was hoping by not using the computer for an entire week that things would be better, but I am almost in tears typing this post. OK enough complaining.

The colors this week were Apricot Appeal, Basic Grey, and Sage Shadow. This DP is call Nouveau Chic, and it has all these colors in it. The Way to Use It challenge was to mix patterns, so I used different patterns of the same DP. The Queen for the Day this week is Cathleen aka ctorina. She is such a sweetie, she always leaves the nicest comments on my cards. I CASEd her card that you can see here. Lastly the Inspiration Challenge this week was Green Rainbow Shop. I drew my inspiration from this shirt and this Dog sweater. Both of them had Apricot and Sage in them.

I punched the stars out of DP and trimmed them a little so you could see the black layer behind them. I also used the new Black Satin ribbon -- I love this ribbon, it's so EASY to tie into a bow.

Thanks for stopping by,

A beautiful job...nice layout! Sorry about your shoulder...I have had similar issues and found that physio/acupuncture was a way to deal with it (at least initially) so I could get some mobility back.
