Good morning, and happy weekend! Today is also happy because it's the day the new images are available at Squigglefly! So many to look at and drool over and tons of inspiration in their idea gallery!
I want to thank you all for your continued prayers for my sister Becky. I talked to her yesterday and she is feeling sick to her stomach a lot and suffering with cold sores, and she's bored to tears there, but her attitude is pretty good. We are planning a reunion of all our families next summer, so that is something for her to look forward to.
Today's card was made for a special friend, and I used one of the new images that Diane Carubia drew called Maisy and Creamy With Flowers.

I colored the image with Copic markers and then chalked the sky. I should have paid more attention to the name of the image because I didn't color the dog a creamy color! I got a little creative and drew in a sidewalk for them to stand on and stamped in some grass and a bush. The grass stamp is from Art Impressions, and for the bush I used one of the stamps from Stampin' Up's watercolor minis set. The sentiment is also from a Stampin' Up set called Simply Said.
The border at the bottom was made with a Martha Stewart punch, and I punched it twice and staggered it. Finished the whole thing off with a pink bow at the top.
We are having a rainy weekend which I love, so I plan on getting a lot of cards made! I hope you have a little creative time too! Thanks for looking!
