Potted Cactus

  Hi there and Happy Tuesday!
I'm popping in today with a card for A Jillian Vance Design for my regular Tuesday post.

I have been absent because I had surgery last week on my clavicle. Some of you may remember when I broke my collarbone the week before I started the 25 Days of Christmas Tags in 2017! The bone never fused back together and I have had a lot of discomfort since using my right arm. After much deliberation I decided to have a plate put in and have the bone surgically reattached. I am happy to report after only one week that it is nothing like breaking it in the first place! Although I am still looking at 4 to 6 weeks for recovery with my arm immobilized in a slinging think it was a good decision. 

A really clean and simple card using the Cute Cactus die set and the Petite Pot & Vase die set. The images were coloured with COPIC markers and I adhered them to the card base with a combination of tape runner and foam tape.  The sentiment from the Sucker for You stamp set is stamped in black ink directly to the bottom of the top folding card base.

This card as made ahead of time and I hope you find time to pop over to A Jillian Vance Design to see what fun products I used to create it.
