This is a quick card I made for dear granddaughter (she is 7). She sent Grandpa a ballon arrangement while he was in the hospital so made this card and enclosed a picture of the arrangement in with the card. Love these mice, colored with Copic markers, cool grays, used our downloaded paper (LOVE THEM) and a new punch from EK Success. The punch reminded me of holes in cheese - okay my imagination is vivid!!
My MoJo has not been flowing lately with DH in the hospital. He is now home but again not without problems, he developed cellulitis (skin inflammation) in the arm where his IV infusion was placed. So we are treating with big gun antibiotics and saying a lot of prayers. All of this because of a kidney stone!!!

This is a fun card I made for a girl at work that just had surgery and she didn't want anyone to know - well you know how word gets out so I am sending a Hello card vs. a get well card. I used Friends set from the April bonus sets, Lilly Anna papers, scrappers floss and clear button. I "cased" the coloring the bird from Rita Kegg and colored with H20 crayons. I love to color with any medium and haven't used these crayons in a long time. The fun part of this card is the embossed clear button, I held the clear button with tweezers in the holes, inked the heart stamp in this set with versamark and pressed my button on the image I wanted to emboss, I then dipped the button in white embossing powder and heat set the powder. Tied scrappers floss and easy peasy button to match.

Happy Trails

Here is a card that I made a couple of weeks ago for one of my homebound patients. She is a horse lover so I thought this card would be perfect for her. I was happy to see that this stamp set was not on the discontinued list. This card did require a little extra postage to mail as I used "rope" around the top but it just finished the card perfectly. Going to be a fun day, going to take a class at a local scrapbook store O'Dear What a Memory with my BFF. The class is "Inchies" so I will post our finished creations. Just a quick update on DH, he had surgery again on April 16, and this time they successfully removed the impacted kidney stone. They left a stint in which is causing him great discomfort but that too will be removed on April 23. We are on the downhill slide of this "health experience".

Special Delivery

The pastel colors don't show off very well in the scanned card but IRL it is very soft. I receive Technique Junkie every other month and I always like to try at least one of the featured techniques so this month it was the chalk lines. I used our new Special Delivery set from the Serendipity , greens and yellows chalks, colored with prisma pencils and OMS and a little bit of sparkle Stickles to the stork. May every one have a Happy Easter.

Playful Kitties

This is a card I am getting ready to send to a friend this morning and she is a kitty lover just like me - well okay my dog is a real close second. I colored the kitty with Prisma pencils and OMS, (I just love to color). Hope my friend enjoys this card as much as I had fun making it. Quick update on DH - last pm was slightly improved from the night before. Nights are the worst for him but it helps if he take 2 pain pills before he goes to bed. It is going to be a BEAUTFUL day in Mo. so my goal is to get him and the Bella dog out for a walk this afternoon.
