A Mytime Sketch - Get Well Karyn!

My Goodness! I know ENTIRELY too many people that have had surgery this week!! I got some good solid stamping time in yesterday, and will have goodies to share over the next few days - woohoo :)

This first card is for my friend Karyn - she had surgery Monday - and though I would have liked to have been a little more 'on-time' with my card, I'm just happy I was able to get one out at all!! I'm in the Royal Family of Good Intentions, you know.

I needed a starting point yesterday, so I went to Lauren's blog - and checked out some of her Saturday sketches (do you see the cool new blinkie in my sidebar???) Love it :)

Anyway -- found this one from just 2 weeks ago. Mytimess27.

By the way - she had a challenge with this one -- have you sent a card to Ethan??

Here's my take on the sketch -- I'm so horrible - I usually work from what I 'remember' of a sketch, and inevitably leave something out (in this case, the little 'tabs' off of the main image) soooo OOPS.

But all in all, I'm pretty pleased with the way this turned out. I broke out my Pink Cat Studio stamps and got to work. Combined QT Hooty and Dress up Lily, and ta-dah!

The paper is from Piggy Tales, I don't recall which collection - Little Red Riding Hood maybe?? Images are colored with my copics...the icepack on Hooty's head got a little messy, but otherwise I thought it turned out ok. There is a little bit of crystal effects on the thermometer. Finished off with a red prima and some doodlebug bling...I love their bling...all those facets... so pretty!

Anyway - had a CRAZY busy birthday party day, so I'm pooped -- headed off to bed. Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

Stamps: Dress Up Lily, QT Hooty, Pink Cat Studios
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: Piggy Tales Patterned Paper, PTI Lemon Tart, Pure Poppy, Select White

You've been a busy one! I have a lot of catching up to do!
I'm so glad I'm not the only one who's late with cards. (It's on my list and I'm hoping to get downstairs later today).
Your card is just darling! Great job on everything!
