…Fluttering By

Happy Monday, peeps!  I’ve had a whirlwind weekend, but I finally got a chance to run up to the hospital and see Brooke this afternoon.  My guys and I have been having horrid sinus problems, so we didn’t want to go up there until we were feeling better…heaven knows we don’t need her getting sick right now.  Her white cell count and platelets are extremely low and she has a head cold, but she was in good spirits and cutting-up with us yet we could tell that she wasn’t feeling 100%.  Please continue your prayers for her, and I will keep you updated on her condition as the days go on.

Now let’s turn to some fun and cuteness!  I haven’t really been in the mood to do a lot of stamping lately, but when I do feel the “need” kicking in I almost always reach for my images from My Favorite Things.  As soon as I saw the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #13 from last week I KNEW what I was going to do, and here it is:



I decided to use the “Fred Bear & Butterfly” set, stamped the images in Black Ink, and colored them with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the focal panel with patterned papers from the Stella Rose- Hattie paper pad from My Mind’s Eye along with some Enchanted Evening, Harvest Gold, and White Cardstock. I stitched the edges of the horizontal panel, distressed the large floral panel, then pierced that edges of the focal panel.  I used the Die-namics Rolled Rose Die as the accent to the sentiment panel and added a Gold Rhinestone to the center.  After adding some Stickles, more Rhinestones, and several more Dimensionals the card was complete.  I’m so pleased with the way it turned out! :)

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow night with the card that I took to Brooke today using an image from By LORi Designs!  Until then…
