Hi blog friends - sorry for the impromptu absence (more about that in a second!). I have a triple dose of Lockhart love today with this sweet Cupcake Trio card. The card is 4" x 6" and the circles are 1.75". It came to be because I was in the mood to color one of Karen Lockhart's whimsical floral cupcakes, but I couldn't decide which one. I opted to color the three that I had, the Morning Glory, the English Daisy and the Violets, but when I did, I loved all three, leaving me no option but to incorporate them all! ;) (Each image is colored with Copic markers.)I love the springy feel that it has!
So, to let you in on a little secret - I love to preschedule posts, and I had several prescheduled earlier this month. I had hip surgery recently; no biggie, just to go in and clean up some torn cartiledge that was causing some pain. But seeing as I'd never had surgery before, I wasn't really sure what to expect. So, I created a fair amount before my surgery and posted them in advance. But then, my unexpected absence occured because I couldn't sit in my chair to create new cards! I've been spending a lot of time working on my laptop from bed (with constant icepacks - oh how I've grown to love ice!), but I'm really missing creating! I'm getting close to being back to normal, so I expect I'm going to be increasing the amount of time that I spend in my office and subsequently, increasing my time creating!
Thanks for your sweet emails wondering where I was. I really appreciate it! I'm lucky to have such sweet blog friends as you. Have an amazing day & be well.
