Feel Better, Friend!

I know!  Another post!!  Pretty sure this is a record . . . I don't think I've EVER posted so many times in a week.  I've been having so much fun creating.  Got to spend the afternoon yesterday with three of my favorite stamping peeps . . . so grateful to have such good friends and fun ladies to hang out with.  I usually don't get too much accomplished on these days, but I did manage to get one card completed, so I thought I'd share.

STAMPS:  Ruffles Get Well Soon (Helz Cuppleditch/Stampavie), Scattered Showers Additions (PTI)
INK:  Tuxedo Black (Memento), Colorbox Chalk Ink (Clearsnap)
PAPER:  Bitty Baby Blessings DP (PTI), White CS (Neenah), Barely Banana CS (SU), Mini Gingham (A Muse)
ACCESSORIES:  Stampin' Dimensionals, Embossed Scallop Border Punch (EK Success), Taffeta Ribbon (SU), Copic Markers, Square Classic Nestabilities, Janome Sew Mini, Buttons (PTI), Scrapper's Floss (Karen Foster)

I managed to cram two challenges into this card . . . the first one is the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #98, as well as the Paper Crafts January Gallery Challenge (which is to create a card featuring marker coloring skills).  You should play along, too!

I received this stamp in the mail on Wednesday and knew that it would go perfectly with the Bitty Baby Blessing paper pack that I got from PTI ages ago (and had not cracked open until yesterday)!  How freakin' cute is this puppy?  Love that big overstuffed chair, too . . . actually, love everything about this image.  It's called "Ruffles Get Well Soon" by Helz Cuppleditch (Stampavie).  I got one other from the same line, and can't wait to get it inky, too.  The sentiment on the card is from the "Scattered Showers Additions" from PTI.  Two more stamps that have never been inked up - TAKE THAT, Terri!  LOL

Well, that's it for me today.  I hope you all enjoy your long holiday weekend.  Any fun plans?  We're having dinner with our neighbors tonight, so I'm looking forward to that.  Otherwise . . . got lots more crafting left in these veins!  Thanks for stopping by - you have no idea how much it means to me that you do.

I can say that if it is even possible, this is cuter yet in IRL! The buttons were the perfect finishing touch! Thanks for the fun day on Friday!
