Wednesday, February 8, 2012


Well, I finally made it to our new Michael's Craft Store. It actually opened last Saturday, but both my parents have been in hospital, so today was the first chance I had to go. My Mom had angioplasty last Friday & my Dad had suffered a stroke the week before. Both are home for now, though Dad goes for cancer surgery this week & Mom has a second angioplasty next week. Let's just say my life has been very, very busy! Thank goodness for cardmaking. Colouring is a real stress reliever for me.

Today's card is for a couple challenges. (Some weeks those challenge deadline dates just seem to sneak up so fast!).  I choose a sweet image by Meljen's Designs for my main focus point. I think this sketch, from Fetch a Sketch,  really draws your eye to the image. My dp is by My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist". I cut the scalloped ovals by using  Spellbinder dies in 3 different sizes. I also used a Spellbinder die to cut the leaves. The sentiment is a digital freebie & I used a circle punch & scalloped circle punch to cut it out & mat it. Added a few paper flowers with brad centers, pearls & some glitter glue. As usual I coloured the image with Copics.

Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday.
