iPICKS, Week Eleven

Long time, no see! Unfortunately, there's been no stamping going on in my studio this week. As most of you know, I had surgery on my foot at Thanksgiving time, and I've been trying to get rid of an infection for several weeks. The infection doesn't seem to be getting any better so I've been off my feet as much as possible since Thursday night. I am praying that by keeping my foot up and staying off of it, I can avoid another surgery to clean out the infection that is scheduled for Wednesday. Oh, to be able to walk normal again! No dangling my foot from a chair while stamping, and no work ... but thank goodness for my daughter's laptop! Thanks for all the sweet comments you left on my last post!!!

Onto iPICKS where I post a selection of my favorite cards and projects found during my blurfing (blog surfing) and SCS stalking for the week. There's no formal rules or guidelines ... just inspiring projects that catch my eye, clever ideas, and exceptional designs. These are projects that inspire me and I hope they inspire you too! Here's my iPICKS for Week Eleven ...
