I need some tea and sympathy - Lili of the Valley Challenge + Creative Inspirations challenge

Good morning everyone, I have an injury today, now I expect sympathy and lots of aaawwwww's lol...when I was getting out of the shower on Saturday I whacked the sink with my hand and then Sunday night in bed I hit the same hand on the bedside table getting up for a drink, I could hardly use it yesterday and its so stiff and bruised its agony today, I don't think its anything serious just a whopping big bruise and stiff is all, but I just wanted some sympathy so thought I would tell you about it, you know what my Dads like if I told him he would just say, you clumsy woman lol...luckily its my left hand so it hasn't effected my card making that much, I'm just a lot slower than normal (can I have another aaaawww please, you do realise this is going to go on this whole post don't you)...my card for today is using the fab sketch over at Lili of the Valley challenge and for the Creative Inspirations Red white and Pink challenge too...I used this fabulous Lili of the Valley Rosie with Cake stamp, coloured with distress inks and glittered and this lush Basicgrey Bittersweet Hand dipped paper, the fab pink sentiment is from the Thickers I bought at TK Max, love these so much and I finished with Thickers dots and a lush pink ruched ribbon...I caught up with loads of blogging last night, thank goodness I can type one handed (right this is where you come in with another aaaaawwwww lol) but didn't get hardly any crafting done at all so I may need a catch up today...whatever your up to today have a fantastic injury free day everyone

Hi Mina. Your LOTV image is beautifully coloured and I love the sugary icing. Hope your hand recovers soon - are you able to rest it? My crafting is curtailed rather today with workmen coming round. :( My hands won't be rested though as I will be getting my housework done instead!

Hi Mina,
Firstly, your card is gorgeous. Beautiful design papers and colours. I love the cute image and the lettering.
Now on to the sympathy. There is always tea here if you can come (but bring your craft stuff with you). I'm tempted to ask what kind of drink you were getting up for lol. I think to be on the safe side you need to be cocooned in your craft room till the hand is better. Take care.
Special Hugs,
Fiona x
