Making a OSW with my mom




This is my mom, Wilma! Boy am I gonna be in trouble when she finds out I was taking pictures! LOL








I started a Valentine OSW when Kelly first brought it up. Since I had a coupon from Archiver's for free card stock... why not!

I had it all cut out, but hated the colors! Go figure right

Well my mom put it together so I let her keep it...not sure if she embellished it at all yet, but
after she got it all glued it was kinda pretty!




A Tri Shutter, Side Step, Center Step, Easel, Twisted Easel and Gate Fold Cards

1 week down!


I look like a football player!
It's a good 3" of padding! lol


You know me, I can't leave anything alone! I had to look. Now I am bummed, he told me I'd have stitches... those look like staples to me! WOW! Look at that bruise!



Went to the doc on Tuesday to have the staples removed. He changed his mind. I did get a clear bandage so I can shower...YAY!
The purple marks are where each person initials that they did something; Anesthesia,  was the first, then I had a nerve blocker .Those marks are still there, I think they used permanent Sharpies! lol
 Well at least the bruise is going away!

No stamping yet...grrrrr!
