A Painfully produced card for Whiff of Joy challenge #18

Not many cards made this week due to slight mishap with little finger. It being very silly got itself knocked and swelled up beyond belief. Now it's all swollen, lumpy, a beautiful shade of purple and won't bend. This has made crafting extremely difficult and somewhat painful - consequently making cards is a very slow process at the moment.


WOJ have a recipe for us to follow this week. Three patterned papers, two flowers and one brad or button.

I used Papermania Simply Elegant papers (curtesy of Martine - who kindly replaced, at her own expense, a challenge prize lost by the PO). I used hammered cardstock and cut the front from corner to corner so the inside shows. The third patterned paper I used for the flowers and to decorate the inside - hope this isn't cheating!!


Materials
Papermania Simply Elegant papers : Image, WOJ - Melinda blowing kisses : Derwent pastels : Punches - EKSuccess Retro flowers & Leone Em branch : SU pearls : Flower brad from stash

Hi Heather, this card is just gorgeous, I love the way you cut the front of the card, just lovely. Fab image and papers too ( I just bought a book of those yesterday )

me bein a nurse i think it's poss you broke your finger ! In any case, even for severe bruising the treatment is the same, put a little piece of lint or even kitchen roll between your damaged finger and the neighbouring one , and then using a bit of tape, or plasters , join the 2 fingers together, it should support it and ease the discomfort :-)
Hope it feels better soon x

Ouch Heather your poor little finger sounds broken...hope its feeling better soon...stunning cards love the soft gentle colours and the papers and image are stunning xxx

Dawn said...

Aww Heather
Lumpy, bumpy finger aside - it's still a fantastic card - I love those colours - I'm always drawn to browns and cream and make a real effort to make cards with different colours or there would just be a sea of brown, creams and beige!!!

Seriously though as Lorraine has said as I was reading your post I'm thinking eeeh it sounds like it's broken, have you been to the doctor to get it checked even though it's just a strap it up job!!!

Hope it gets better though

Hugs
Dawn

This is beautiful Rica. Can't believe you have created this with your hurt finger ... which I have read later on is actually broken. Hang in there and just give it some rest from time to time ... I know this is difficult for a seriously enthusiastic crafter. Hugs from Desire
