Happy Anniversary


I have not created or posted for awhile.  Hopefully I am out of
my slump.  For those that have been asking, I am 5 weeks out
from my hip recovery and am doing well.  Each day is a 
an improvement towards normal.

I was inspired yesterday by Jayce Gasper who appeared on a
live with Jennifer McGuire, it can be found here.  He is
a scientist and card maker and I learned so much from
him.  I also did the double embossing on my background.
The rose die is Altenew, I cut the cold layer and the
Happy Anniversary from scraps.  Base layers from
white and colored with distress oxides.  

A few fun challenges:
Addicted to stamps 465: Die cuts/stencil  4/16
Die Cut Diva's April 5/1
The Male Room (embossing) 5/1

A really lovely card Donna - so pretty! Pleased to hear you're recovering from your hip operation. It takes different lengths of time for different people.
