Well I don't know where to start!
My last posting was back in October 2009 when a severe attack of Psoriatic Athritis hit, (it does the same kind of damage as Rheumatoid Arthritis)  leaving me with little mobility by the time 2010 was with us...
With medication, the inflamation was under control and muscle strength returning but, it left me with a damaged right hip...
Got the hip replaced in January this year and am now getting back to normal (ish).
My strength although much improved is nothing like it should be but I'm ready to BLOG AGAIN!

So here we go with my version of this unusual  Peachy Keen sketch...

Peachy Keen Stamps :: Sketch Challenge 61

And here's my take on it...used for my Grandson Jacks' 1st birthday card.

I decided to use the shape as a hill for the little train set cut from a die set by QuicKutz (train)
Jacks photo is altered in Photoshop to a drawing.
The greeting is made using Sizzix dies.
The twine element that's required is embroidery thread wrapped around the J.A.C.K. letters.
Hope you like it ;)
