One way to have time to stamp is to break an arm and leg at the same time! Ater 5 bicycle accidents I am convinced that exercise is a health hazard. Since almost anything else is impossible it's a great time to catch up on the cards that didn't get done.
This little image is from Dragonfly Laser. She was colored with copics and pencils and matted simply. The stitching is by hand and the holly is cut from a Tim Holtz die. I had no red tiny brads for the holly, so I used copics on light colored brads- it worked.
Thanks for looking.

First, I'm so sorry about your accident, and pray that you will heal quickly, and your pain will very soon go away completely.
What a great way to recover--stamp therapy!!! :) I LOVE this card--first, your stitching is PRISTINE, SO even--WOW!!! I'm totally impressed, never have seen it done so well!!!
Love as well your coloring, you bring that young girl to life! What I also appreciate is that you haven't over-embellished, you stopped at the right point so that we appreciate what you have done especially with the focal image. STUNNING!!!
Take good care, and I hope you'll be feeling better very soon.
By the way, my first thought is you do better with one hand that I can do with two--what a blessing you've been to me with this card, and you will be to so many here on SCS. Can't wait to check out your gallery! :)
