got swine flu...

Don't blame my... my husband chose the title for this one! What a funny card to give someone with the swine flu though! He wants me to make more. Honestly, I hope I don't know anyone to give a swine flu get well card to.

This is a card I made for one of Beate's sketches. I love the inspiration I get from her blog and I am so glad she chose not to change it. I doubt that she reads my measly ole blog but Thanks Beate for creating such an awsome blog!

On to the card... The colors on the bedding aren't exactly what I wanted and it matches better in real life than it seems to here. I wish I wouldn't have chosen a pig to go on this patterned paper. I found it very limiting in choices of color for the image.
stamps: stampin up from a wish rak so i am not certain of the set
ink: basic black, copic markers
paper: stampin up blush blossom and very vanilla, k & company k-ology hannah
accessories: prima (burg) and american crafts paper flowers, mme button, may arts twine

ring around the snowman...

I've always loved this image. I'm not really sure why I don't own it. LOL

I colored these guys with Copic markers and cut them out with my nesties layering on a nestie flower. I really like the wavy crazy look of that.

The card base and layers were done at CKC during the crop. I didn't stay long. It seems the CKC crops go down hill every year. I'd heard that the Friday night crop is better than the Saturday night crop so I scheduled that one but there's so many people there and it's so loud and the contests they do are so cheesy anymore! I'm not sure if I will be attending a crop next year. Seems a waste to pay for a crop that I leave half way through. I wish the vendor fair was open that late though! Hee hee ;p


ink: black colored with colored with copic markers
paper: sei christmas mint cocoa cluster, american crafts red textured, coredinations color core green
