Quintile Swap

It seems ages since I blogged.

Last week I went in for a small op which has had a major impact on my crafting!
I had my right wrist operated on for Carpal Tunnel, very quick op under local anaesthetic, but quite sore afterwards. Most of my crafting has had to be done with my left hand as not able to grip acrylic block, etc. Never mind stitches out tomorrow and maybe I can even start ironing again ......in a few months!

The theme for our March Quintile Swap on the Chocolate Baroque group is Springtime.

For my tiles I used the new stamps from Chocolate Baroque - Spring is in the Air and Spring Foliage.
The sentiments are from Breath of Spring set.

Coloured with Distress Markers and Distress Ink.
Coloured the Snowdrops with Sakura clear glaze to protect from ink. Added some WOW glitter to the catkins on the crocus tile.

Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow when the dressings are removed!

These are delightful & I particularly like the way you used the catkins along the top. Your use of the Glaze to protect the snowdrops form the ink shows beautifully. I do hope that everything works to plan when the stitches come out. Do take care & much love.

Ooh, these are beautiful Sandra! Love the snowdrop one.

You don't want to overdo it by even thinking about ironing, lol!
