FLOWER FUSION for CUPCAKE CHALLENGE

Oh boy did it ever feel good to stamp yesterday! I really should have been cleaning house but my foot is still killin' me (plantar fasciitis) so I thought I had better stay off of it. Lucky for me, I stamp sitting down! LOL!

This card uses Taylor VanBruggen's Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #29 (TECC29). I chose to use Stampin' Up!'s Flower Fusion for my circles on the sketch, and the "happy birthday" sentiment is from Think Happy Thoughts. It's probably difficult to see in the photo, but the Basic Black background panel was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and mounted on a Whisper White base. The overall card measures 4 3/4" x 4 3/4". RECIPE
Stamps: Think Happy Thoughts
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Rose Red, and Old Olive CS
Ink: Basic Black

Embellishments: Flower Fusion, Black Brads
Tools: Swiss Dots Embossing Folder (non-SU), 3/4", 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punches
Supplies: Pop-Up Glue Dots, Mini Glue Dots

YOu still got it, gf!! This is fabulous!! Love all those flowers, especially with the black brad in the middle, very striking! I would say I hope you foot feels better, but not if it means you have to get up and clean house and stop stamping! lol!

you may be time-limited, but your mojo is still flowin' strong! this is just great, esp. the black dotted background!

i've had the plantar fascitis, and my best suggestion is to get to a sports medicine doctor as soon as possible and get fitted for orthodics. they make all the difference in the world, particularly if you do a significant amount of standing. that arch support is critical to healing. of course, they may want to do cortisone injections first. those hurt like crazy going in, but they really do help.

i personally hope you have to sit longer so that we get to see more cards!

I know the pain you are experienceing with your foot, I've had physio and now wear custom orthotics; not very fshionable but comfortable and seems to feel some what better.
