And my inspiration photo:


And since I'm still technically not supposed to be using my right arm period - I can tell you this card took way longer than it ever should have - HA - and I don't have much to say about it because it hurts SO BAD TO TYPE WITH BOTH HANDS, gotta make this quick and go ice the shoulder. So here ya go:


Next up is the Megamazing Michelle!! Thanks for joining us for this super fun occasion; we've all had a blast preparing the hop for you!

PS-my awesome sponsor, Fresh Brewed Designs, is offering a 10% discount with the word CUPCAKE - go ahead, shop and havefun!!

Hugs, ~M.

Comment #1...I love your blog and just became a follower. found you through the blog hop. :)

Lisa M said...

Comment #2 - WOWWEEE...Love what you did with your card! I'm very impressed you did this with the majority of just one arm. My hubby just had shoulder surgery so I understand the pain you're in, but my goodness, did you ever do an incredible job on your card. That cake and all it's decorations look scrumptious!! Hope the ice makes it a little better.
hugs,
Lisa and thank you for this opportunity.

Wow, I can't believe you were able to make a card using only one arm. I don't think I would have had the patience! And your card still came out wonderful; I love that color scheme too, makes me think of ice cream.
