I made this card today for a few different challenges. I'm now 2 weeks post-op, and it isn't easy sitting at my craft table while trying to elevate my foot. So, a card that should have taken about 20 minutes ended up taking me most of the afternoon. I will be so glad once I'm "back to normal" and the circulation issues resolve themself. At least I got it finished.
One of the challenges I'm entering is the one over at Young Crafters Unite where they're having a challenge that requires you to use NO COLORING. That means no Copics, no colored pencils, no markers, crayons, paints, etc. So I tried to think about how I could create lots of color but not use any coloring. I decided to use balloons to bring in the main color and focal point of the card. Here is their Challenge Photo and a link to their challenge:
The next challenge I'm entering with this card is the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog where they are celebrating their 3rd Birthday. This is my festive birthday card for their challenge.

I am now lounging on the couch, and will probably stay here most of the weekend. I know I'm starting to kind of "push it", and I really need to take it easy. I'm just not that strong yet, and I don't want to overdo it and end up being sorry for it.
Thanks for stopping by today. I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing what you've made this weekend. Enjoy your visit, and thanks for your sweet comments.
