Merry Christmas

Hello everyone! I've missed you all, it's been awhile since I've posted anything. I've been having some shoulder problems (I have a torn labrum in my right shoulder), and I haven't felt much like crafting because of the pain I've been experiencing. The good news is that I started physical therapy yesterday and I'm really hoping that it helps, and that I won't need surgery!




My card today uses 2 of my favorite new stamp sets, Merry Little Christmas from PTI and Musical Backgrounds from Waltzingmouse. The pink background paper is from Webster's Pages. I love how soft and feminine and "pink" this card is; I'll probably give it to my Mom for Christmas :)




Even though I haven't felt much like crafting myself, I've really been enjoying visiting blogs lately and seeing all of the beautiful Christmas creations out there! I'm always amazed at the many talented folks who I'm blessed to know :) I hope that you're all enjoying your December, and don't forget to cherish each minute and take time to smell the roses (or should I say pine cones ;)


Blessings,
Diane

  3. I've missed your lovely cards in blogland lately and wondered why you've been AWOL! So sorry for your shoulder injury, but take time to rest it and hopefully you'll pull through w/o needing surgery! It's nice to see you creating again, and your ornament card is so feminine and lovely! I really like the lacy twill on the bottom and the stitching accents! WB and TC! :D
