Birthday Card.....

Good morning everyone and welcome to a brand new week.  We are getting very close to the Christmas Holiday and everyone is getting a little frantic.  I'm trying to finish everything as I have been out of commission for about a week.  I slammed my right thumb in the car door one day last week and I've been nursing it trying to get it back to some sort of normal motion and it is finally beginning to come around.  It is still very swollen and I can't do delicate work on my cards yet and I really needed to be able to finish my tags and things before the holiday.  Everything looks a little plain because I just can't shape flowers or tie bows.  I'm hoping that will come back soon.  So, that being said, here is a birthday card I needed for an upcoming birthday and to me it is just lacking a bow or some festive flowers, but it is what it is.

 
I  used some pretty Heartfelt Creations papers from the Delicate Asters Collection, some Spellbinders dies and a sentiment from Heartfelt Creations as well. 
 
Well that is it for me...I'm off to put my thumb on ice and try and get some swelling down.  Hope your day is good one and that you take a moment and "Breathe".

Ouchie, ouchie! I am so sorry, Glenda. Noone needs this ever, but especially before a holiday! Hope it heals quickly. Gorgeous creation.

Oh no Glenda. So sorry to hear about your injury. Sounds like you need to borrow some of Santa's elves for a little while! Your card is beautiful. That is one of my favorite new Spellbinders dies. Take care.

For someone with a sore thumb, you've certainly created a gorgeous and elegant card! I couldn't do that with all my fingers healthy!!
Just had yet another catch-up here and it was just what I needed. Have a wonderful week. Only 8 days to go--yikes!!!

Beautiful card and I love the different die cuts layered together! I'm sorry your thumb is still swollen and hurtful... do you think it's broken since it's been so long? Hope it heals quickly for you.

OH! You poor thing! I jammed my thumb last week, and while it hurt to hold a pen for a day or so, it is much better, just some faint aching with gripping activity. I can only imagine how bad your thumb hurts!!

Your card may be CAS, but it is still lovely! I really like how you layered the center embellishments. I never seem to think of doing that and it adds so much to the finished project!

It's a beauty, Glenda! We get so used to layering on the embellishments we forget CAS can be and is very pretty too! Hope your thumb is back to normal soon.
