Hope and CAS

Hi everyone,bless you again for all the lovely comments,you leave me they really are giving me such a boost at the moment.
Lots of you are asking about my foot,well the truth is,its hell to be perfectly honest,still waiting for an app to see the,surgeon,to see were I go from here did get a letter today from the doctor who I saw at the hospital who has reffered me to the surgeons,but to be honest,the words,are all long,and have no idea what they mean. All I know is that its really getting me down,and the pain never gives up at night when I take my boot off,boy it doesn't half kick in,even more,and am getting about 2 3 hours sleep if I am lucky.
Hence all this crafting,to try and keep my mind off it,that along with trying really hard to keep the house clean,cook,etc. Ooh and had to take Alice to the vets,today as she has a really nasty ear infection.
Okay enough,
This is Hope, which I got from,funkykits which you can get HERE I have again used my pencils,and have bought some Hb Pencils,to add some shadows,which I like a lot and work really well for me anyway so here she is.
DP's are Anna Griffin,and SU,the lace from my stash,and have made the flower with some ribbon,lace and a brad. The adhesive stones,are from my,pal Sarah,thanks hun which i have colored with pro markers,to match the paper.
Next is my CAS card,I just hope Chrissy approves,she is so brilliant at this kind of card,and I really,appreciate her feed back,as she really knows what she is talking about,the stamp is from QVC which I got ages ago I have stamped in,brilliance,blue and green ink,pastel.
Lace from my stash,and the sentiment is Kanban,the butterfly and tiny bee are from a set I got from the Craft barn viva,stamps,which is on the sheet I did for my tutorial for them. The stones,again I have colured to match the colors,
challenges
gingerloft,all those flowers hope my handmade one counts
incywincy pastel colors
craftypad use ribbons,
littlemissmuffet,designer papers
allysunday anything goes
craftyour passion anything goes

Hi Cheryl,
This is beautifully delicate, I love the gentle distress to the edges of the Nestie. It all looks very calm and serene. Lovely ink colour!

Cheryl, I do hope your foot is resolved soon. I can't believe how long you've suffered with it.
It is a good thing you can craft to TRY and take your mind off it. both your creations are wonderful. I especially love what you did with the little girl. Give Alice hugs from me. xxoo

massofhair said...

So sorry to hear you are in pain... I use crafting as a 'distraction technique' and have done for many years as i often don't sleep due to constant pain so i do understand...

Gorgeous card with lovely colours and textures but i think i would have left the sentiment off as it looks too crowded under the flower. A very cas card:-)

Julie Forest said...

Hi, Cheryl! "Hope" is absolutely astounding! What a pretty face!! And your CAS card is fabulous! Love the colors, lace and the textured cardstock! Great combination! Sorry to hear your foot is still giving you so much trouble. You'd never know your were suffering so by looking at your art. Hang in there, dear. *hugs*

Lynn Stevens said...

Oh Cheryl,
My heart goes out to you. I'm so sorry to hear your still in so much pain. Stamping can be a good diversion if your up to it. Try and get more rest and don't overdo.
Your little girl card is just darling and your other one has such a soft and delicate look.
Be well
Hugs Lynn
