Not a Bad Effort
I hope those of you who have kept checking my Blog every once in a while will be pleased to see this post. It represents SO much for me I can't even begin to tell you. Ten days ago I tried to stamp an image and couldn't control the stamp enough to get a clear, clean impression. Since then things have begun to improve slowly. So last night I gave it another try and managed to get a few decent impressions. Pushing my luck I then tried painting the image with DI colours. Even though I do say so myself I think I made very passable job of it. It took lots of concentration but I did it. This morning I drew around it and then cut it out - with scissors!!! Next challenge was to make it into a card and as you can see from the picture I managed that too. There have been times in the last 11 weeks when I thought I would NEVER craft again so this is massive for me. I feel quite emotional about it as I sit here typing this. Still a long way to go but long may the improvement continue. Thanks to those of you who stopped by today 'just in case'. I hope it was a nice surprise to find a new post after all this time.
PS Please excuse any typos as my hands and fingers are sill very clumsy.
