SOS464: You Deserve a HAND

There's a brand new challenge at Shopping Our Stash and this time you've got a choice! For "You Deserve a HAND" you can make a card that features a literal hand OR you can go with a metaphorical hand, and make a Congratulations card! As you can see, I chose the former.

Since one of the best possible uses for hands, imo, is holding a cup of coffee, I chose to use my Riley & Company Midge with Coffee stamp to commemorate that fact. I've colored Midge with Tombows and Prismacolor pencils, but paper-pieced the coffee mug. The big honkin' letters are Altenew's Bold Alphabet die set, cut once from Eyelet Outlet Donut Washi (adhered to plain white cardstock, neatly, in strips) and then a second time from dark brown cardstock to serve as a drop-shadow. Background paper is from the late great Basic Grey's "Out of Print" collection. (I still miss BG!!!) The newest items on this card are the small puffy alphabet stickers, which are Pinkfresh Studio and probably only a year or so old.

I hope you'll hop over to SOS to see what the crew have made, and start planning what you're going to link up with us this time!
