Rin Give thanks

I just found another company called Sparkle Creations that has really cute stamps. I love the Rin line. My SIL loves all Asian themed stuff so I picked up a few of these stamps to make her some cards. This is a card I made for my friend. I used Autumn Rin, Buttons from A Muse, Paper from Basic Grey, and copics to color and a gold glitter pen to go over the ribbons  her hair and her Kimono. I hope you like it!

OK, So...I broke my ankle. OUCH!!!
The doctor told me that I had to keep my leg up and not to do much for the first two weeks. My X-ray needed to look better after two weeks or he was going to strongly suggest surgery. Double OUCH! was my LEFT leg. So, I can still drive. With kids in a bunch of activities each day, it would have been a MAJOR tragedy if I broke my right leg. But.....since it was my left, It was more like a strike of good fortune. How, might you ask, could breaking your leg be a good thing???? Well, My darling husband set up a table in front of the couch for me to camp out at for the first two weeks. SO I took my lemons and made lemonade!!!! I mean, Took my craft supplies and made cards!

I managed to squeeze out 55 cards in the two weeks. I actually went into my stash and used a lot of stamps that I have not even inked yet! Of course a few were some that I had just bought also... :-)

This is a picture of most of my cards:

Here are some close ups:

I just found these stamps from Sister Stamps.......I love the girl holding the paper crane!

This was my husband's anniversary card. This saying is from Henry H. (I wonder what the "H" stands for)
The stamp is from There She Goes and the paper is from Close to my heart.

I really like the new PTI snowflake dies!!!!!

I made this card a while ago, but I made more of them while I was broken. This image is from whipper snapper designs. I have had this stamp in my stash for a LONG time. But I have always loved the bear and penguin stamps they have.

This was a flip card I made for my daughter's Friend

This angel is from Taylored expressions. I wanted to make a few Simple cards for the CCD teachers and the people at my church. I got the idea from someone on Splitcoast stampers, but I have to find the card so I can give them credit.

I hope that you like my cards! I had a lot of fun making them. It definitely kept me busy while I have been immobile!
