Thinking of You

I finally sat down and made another card - starting back to school this week and still working on unpacking (very slowly mind you :p ) has had me rather running ragged and hitting the bed early every night. This morning I felt the need to make a card for a dear friends wife who had back surgery a little over a month ago and it didn't fare so well. She ended up with loss of feeling and quite a few other things but is slowly recovering a little at a time. A lot of positive thoughts and prayers have been sent her way but I thought a card might brighten her week. This card is pulling triple duty for challenges today:

Just Magnolia - Paper piecing - I stamped the image 3 times: 1 on white to color, 1 on the green PP and 1 on the blue PP and then I pieced her dress together. I started to do her shirt sleeves and boots but thought it was a bit much when I got to looking at it. I am very happy with how it turned out!

Sketch Saturday - A fun and funky sketch!

Cardalicious - 2 flowers, 1 ribbon and the color blue!


Hope you like!

Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for the reveal at The Cuttlebug Spot - this week I went a bit out of my box but I liked it!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Beautiful card, your paper piecing is brilliant! Thanks so much for joining us at JM this week. x


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
