AWOL from Crafting!

I have not been at my crafting table yet during this month of February, 2015 due to numerous appointments and a bit of mouth surgery called a sinus lift and bone graft a few days ago.  Not really feeling quite up to getting out of my recliner much right now, so I apologize for the skimpy blogging, and my family has totally missed receiving their Valentine cards since I was not working ahead far enough to get them done before this little medical event.  

I received a pretty card from one of my cardmaking buddies who lives just down the street from me.  I didn't really hear the doorbell in my groggy state, but fortunately my husband found it waiting on the doorstep.  I wanted to share this "feel better" card with you because it is one that is handmade.

This card uses the three-panel technique (not sure that is the official name) that has been around several years, and one that I have admired but not tried myself yet, though I have been thinking of it.  I've seen it with stamped images divided into three panels and also embossed panels.  Probably time to "get the lead out" and try it, right???  Charlene also used her new Sizzix Ornate Labels dies, which she sound while we were out shopping one day last month.  I admired it greatly, but they only had one left :-(.

 Thank you, Charlene!  Your card bought just the right touch of cheer to my heart.
