Take a Tissue
Howdy - MichelleO here today - This week for High Hopes Stamps I found an image for a little get well card. This is "Take a Tissue"
My stash of get well cards has gotten really low - and with this sinus season hitting here I needed to color up some well wishes! And this guy is just too adorable and perfect to send as a pick me up. I colored with my copics. (colors below) and found some old K & Company K-Ology papers. I adore the color combo with these papers. I matted the image and sewed down the layers. The sentiment is also from High Hopes Stamps "Get Well Soon" Now I accidentally punched my sentiment. Insert sad face here... but then I decided to just go with it! LOL I finished punching both sides and used it! Happy Accident?
For embellishment I added three white prima shimmer flowers with light pink brads. I had lost these flower forever in my "collection" of craft supplies. So happy I have found them I am loving them all over!
Hope this one will make someone feel better. Makes me smile.

At the beginning of the year I gave myself a challenge. I want to make one birthday card a month so I'm not stuck - like I always am - making a birthday card the night before a birthday dinner. I all of a sudden realized that this is my last post for February and I haven't made a birthday card yet this month!
Since I have a number of teen and young adult nephews I decided that "Skateboarder Gabriel" would be perfect for a card for one of them.

This week, I challenged myself to make a CAS (clean and simple) card. I chose a coffee theme well.... because I love coffee and so do a lot of my friends so I decided to try to combine the two things into a card for my just because stash. I love the gnomes and coffee themed stamps at High Hopes so I chose "Just Relaxin'" for this personal challenge.

Precious Little One
I have always enjoyed when the little ones in my life get to the crawling stage. It is fun to watch them realize they can control where their hands and legs can go and when they get the co-ordination of crawling down there is no stopping them. It is always fun to watch this transformation and then when they figure out they can move things out of their way as they are crawling....look out! Toys, pacifiers, anything on the floor is quickly batted out of the way - you learn to duck pretty quick if you are on the floor with them!
The "Crawling Baby Girl" stamp in the "Sweet Baby" release at High Hopes brought back some fun memories for me which I tried to portray in my card. This little girl not only has crawling figured out but how to move things out of her way and she is having way too much fun!
