Sleeping Baby Boy:

Well it is officially "holiday is over" time :(  Most people I know are actually looking forward to going back to work after two weeks of vacation, but not me.  I LOVE being a home body - I can be kept busy for days on end without ever leaving the house.  Oh well, life goes on, even after Christmas :)

It feels pretty good being back in the craft room, though for a while I will have to pace myself.  My shoulders are still in a considerable amount of pain and I can only do so many card sittings at a time.  Sitting at my craft table and being at work on the computer have my shoulders most aggravated.

I used a brand new stamp, Sleeping Baby Fairy Leaf, and paper pieced him into a little boy - isn't he precious?!

Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs digi, MME papers, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, American Crafts jute, Gelly Roll white pen, cheese cloth, random flowers, Recollections pearls.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, sewing machine, Making Memories edge distresser.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Here Comes The Boys - sketch, Sugar Creek Hollow - vintage new, Crafty Ribbons, CCEE Stampers, A Gem of a Challenge - new beginnings.


Have a wonderful Monday.  See you all again on Wednesday!

So sorry to hear about your shoulder pain...pain is so demanding and takes us away from crafts, which we SO love.

On the days when my pain is high and I can't do most of my crafting...I try to sit in a recliner, with a pile of images and my Copics...and colors away the day! IT's almost like therapy!

Love it!!

TAKE CARE!!
