Happy Healing ...

Unfortunately, I needed another get well card.  A good friend had to have knee surgery and I wanted to give her something to let her know I'm thinking of her.  My inspiration for this card came from The Sweet Stop.  This is their last sketch as they are closing their doors.  I'm sad!

This is what I came up with ... 

Stamps:  Cocoa's Get Well Wishes (Sweet 'n Sassy)
Paper:  White, Basic Gray (SU)
DP:  Bold Basics (Recollections)
Ink:  Memento Black
Accessories: Pearls, corner rounder, sponge dauber (SU), Label 1 die (Spellbinders), Copics

I'm still hooked on this cute Cocoa mouse!  I just bought more stamp sets with him peeking around different things.  Watch for more to come. :)

I'm also going to toot my own horn as I'm still doing the happy dance.  My card was picked last week at The Sweet Stop as a winner.  Now I get to go do some fun shopping at the Sweet 'n Sassy store! Thank you to all the gals over there.

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,

Day of Gratitude ...

Wow, can't believe it has been over a month since my last post.  I have actually uploaded some cards to my Splitcoast page here.  Today's card is for The Sweet Stop sketch with a spin of Fall.  Here is what I came up with ...

Stamps:  Day of Gratitude (SU), Bountiful Harvest (Verve)
Paper:  Vanilla, Peach Parfait, Pear Pizzazz (SU)
DP:  Reunion (MME)
Ink:  Tea Dye (Ranger)
Accessories:  Copics, ribbon, clear embossing powder, sponge dauber, pop dots, polka dot embossing folder (SU), circle dies (Spellbinders)

This is the inspiration ...

This is a square 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card.  Always fun to make a different size card.  I did make sure that it would fit in a normal sized envelope so I don't have to pay extra postage ... call me cheap.

Tomorrow will be the last sketch for The Sweet Stop.  I'm sad to see them close their doors.  I have thoroughly enjoyed participating with them.  

Thanks for stopping by and as always ...

Have a great day,
