Christmas Toys for Kids - Rudolph Days

Hi, Friends.......

UGH....I am typing this with an injured hand.....

(2 badly sprained fingers plus a 3rd one that is also likely sprained....still not sure there isn't something broken inside the hand.....and it happened on a weekend so, of course, I didn't go to the doctor...sigh) please forgive errors and lackluster conversation in this post. Crafting was a trick, but typing with these fingers is even worse!!!!! OUCH.

Background is repurposed used gift wrap tissue decoupaged onto kraft cardstock. The red frames for the images are cut from a repurposed used red envelope.


Used MFT Sketch #439

Supplies used include:
Various small Christmas stamps of toys, etc from stash (some Hero Arts)
Versamark ink
Red embossing powder
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set
Spellbinders small frame dies
Winnie & Walter - Essentials: Katharine Cutaways die set
Serendipity - Merry Christmas sentiment
Mod Podge Matte finish

That's about all the typing I can handle for this post. I have one other post still to do. Ugh.... Thank you for stopping by. Say a prayer for my hand if you think of it, please! Thanks!!

  3. Poor you - sounds as if that's a nasty injury. Sounds like a trip to the doctors is still needed. Your card is gorgeous and I love how you used that sketch to such great effect. Take care, hope that hand improves and thanks for playing at The Christmas Kickstart again, Jo x

  4. Great idea for your background! It looks stunning. Loving all the wee framed images on your card.

    Thanks for taking part in the May Rudolph Days Challenge.

  5. Me again without my official hat on.
    I pray for healing for your hand. That is a terrible injury for a crafter. Hope you are soon out of pain and and lucky to get a quick and clean recovery.

  7. Fabulous card!
    Thanks for playing at the ABC Christmas Challenge!

  8. Brilliant card Janis - but not so good about your hand! I'm with others who say you should see the doctor - even if only to confirm that nothing is broken! I love the cat cartoon :) Wish someone would teach Dudley to clrea all hist toys away when he's been playing.

  9. Forgot to sign off - silly me!

    Sorry I'm a bit late commenting!
