I'm Back!

Sorry that I haven't posted in so long. I was in the hospital last weekend with a cellulitis/bursitis in my knee and leg. I needed IV antibiotics, and ended up going home with a central line so that I can infuse IV antibiotics at home. So things have been pretty crazy around here!

This card is for my niece's daughter, Ava, who was 5 on Wednesday. She's getting this a little late since I was out of commission for a bit. This card is also a submission for the Ways To Use It 166 challenge on SCS. This challenge is to use Inchies in a card. Inchies are little mini canvases to work on. One inch by one inch. You can use a little stamp, or a portion of a bigger stamp.

I used the little cupcake from SU's Short and Sweet. I used masking so it looked like a group of them. The other images are from SU's Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories. I used a square Nestability to make the scalloped mats for the images.

If you click on the image to enlarge it, you might be able to see the Amuse twinkle rhinestone stickers I used for the cherries on the cupcakes and for the dot on the "i" in big. There is also some of my favorite Spica clear glitter pen on the images too.

I hope you enjoy this little inchie birthday wish. Have a great weekend, and hopefully you will have nice weather and maybe get a bit of stamping in too! Thanks for visiting!

Stamps: Short and Sweet, Loads of Love, Loads of Love Accessories, all by SU!
Ink: Black Stazon
Paper: Cool Caribbean, Apricot Appeal, Pretty in Pink, WW
Extras: Amuse Rhinestone Twinkle stickers, Spica clear glitter pen, Lt pink grosgrain ribbon, SU key tag and horizontal slot punches, Nestability square scallop.

Hi Paula,
The paper I used was from Target, the brand is Making Memories...It looks much better in person, I still haven't mastered the digital camera.

Hope you're feeling well,

So sorry to hear you had to be hospitalized. Did you receive any handmade cards to help you feel better? lol (I hope so!)

This card is darling -- and I'm sure Ava adored it, especially with all that sparkle! Very sweet card.

Hope you'll be feeling good again soon! At least you can still stamp.... ;D
