For you... with love

I've been busy this week in a couple of ways. I'm getting ready for a Girl Scout training this weekend. I'm doing a training on spring crafts. I'll be taking pictures so you can see the crafts we're making during the training. My second big thing this week was a doctor's appointment on Monday. I am now sporting a brace on my left had and wrist. The doc said I had several tip fractures in my wrist and then the arthritis in my thumb was inflamed. The brace is slightly hampering so it takes me longer to do things. I'll survive but a little slower than usual. Hehe!
My card tonight is for Joan's Garden challenge. The challenge has 4 aspects: use paper with stripes; use a button or some kind of embellishment; use a heart; and use a bow.

I went with a monochromatic theme which was nontraditional colors for valentine. The hearts are Spellbinders nestabilities. The sentiments come from a stamp set called A Year of Flowers by Melanie Muenchinger. The embellishments are pearls, blue rhinestones, a button and ribbon.

Other challenges:
Hope you are having a wonderful week. We have yet another snowstorm coming in tonight. Tomorrow should be lots of fun, NOT! Be safe out there.

Your card is so pretty Donna. I am sorry you have an injured hand. A couple of years ago I fell and broke my right wrist in two places, plus my thumb on the same hand. Pretty hard to stamp with one hand.
