Be happy in Life! MTTC #254 "Use Kraft"

Hi friends - hope you are all doing well!
It's time for another great challenge over at My Time To Craft.
The fortnight the MTTC Challenge #254 is the "Use Kraft".
You can color on it or use it as part of your creation.
It just needs to be obvious that you've used Kraft.

Here's my DT card to share with and inspire you:
Digital stamp "Blossom" and sentiment from Your Next Stamp.

Thanks to my new sidekick, "the splint", I have to keep my card designs pretty easy.  I can't use scissors and am barely able to glue using my left hand.  Fortunately I had spent a few evenings in front of the t.v. coloring with my copics - such as this darling digital image by Your Next Stamp.  I can stamp a little with my left hand but have found that it takes me a couple tries (I'm very right hand dominate). My sentiment on this card was stamped with my left hand and is just a wee bit crooked -
 but I was so excited that I actually did it without help that I decided not to redo it :o).

For the next few weeks, I do have some images that I can use to make cards - but it's going to be such a bummer to not be able to color with my copics.  Unless I can figure out how to do it using just my index and middle finger - hehe. I've gotten pretty good with a spoon and fork that way - but still can't time my own shoes. Big, Big Bummer! My advice to you is "keep your fingers out of your car door"!  Well Duh.... :o)

Anyway, enough of my moaning and groaning!    

I am entering my card in the following wonderful challenges:

  5. Your bad finger allows you to stock up on CAS designs, you do this style so well! I'm really impressed by your coloring of this image, look at that fur, looks really natural!

  6. Well! Bung finger or not - your colouring is outstanding Danielle! Wow! Very impressive, my friend. I hope you are on the mend. Thanks so much for playing along at ATSM xx

  7. Oh how I sympathize with you Danielle. I broke the tip off my little finger on my right hand and I couldn't do anything for weeks. Hope its better soon. You did a great job keeping it CAS.
    Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM this week. :)

  8. Wishing you a speedy recovery ... I'm right-hand dominate also and was in a partial cast many moons ago and had such a hard time. Almost didn't graduate H.S. because I couldn't write left handed. This was before the days of computers and being able to type up your school work. LOL!

    Thank you for sharing your lovely CAS card! You colored that image beautifully. Thank you for joining our "Bright & Sunny" Challenge this week at Love to Create.
