Pink Roses

I could not resist a magazine with Altenew stamps and dies included, even though I read they do not stamp as well as the regular Altenew images......

 I used a combo of SU inks and a sketch from SCS. I thought they stamped fin, but used the Misti and stamped more than once to get great coverage.  I will send this to my piano teacher- I only have 4 lessons in the summertime......  The black die is from Sweet Stamps.

I did not get good news from my Physical Therapist- my back has some bad issues and I am going to have to really revise my activities (eg, I have a desk job-will need to stand up more.....).

Creative Moments- Summer/AG
Stampin Royalty- To Die For
Word Art Wednesday- AG
Cuttlebug Mania- Flowers
Crazy Challenge- R is for Roses, Round (die) Rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by!

The card looks beautiful. I was thinking of asking my SIL to send me this magazine just for the Altenew stamps. Now I have to re-consider.
Hope your back heals soon. Perhaps a support back cushion would help a bit at work.

Beautiful, beautiful card! So sorry to hear about your back. Hopefully with some changes, you'll feel better. Our school secretary has a desk that will rise up so she can work standing up when she needs to. Take good care!

Your card is absolutely gorgeous Shelly. You did a fabulous job with the flowers and dies. So sorry to hear about the back issues. I hope that you can get some relief. We had an attorney at our office for awhile that had a stand up desk. Hugs, Maggie
