In My Heart And Thoughts

Hey everyone! I can't believe that Friday is finally here! I go to work at five, and then head straight to the airport after. Tina's plane arrives around 10:30 tonight! I'm really excited to see her, but there's still a lot left to do to get ready for her. My husband is taking off the second half of his workday, so he can run to Sam's and pick up croissants (which I know she likes) for breakfast tomorrow morning. I want to cut some flowers and put a little vase in her room, clear off my desk -- yet again -- from the card I made late last night. Vaccuum. Freshen the sheets. Little things like that.

Anyway, I heard yesterday that a friend is having a few minor health problems, so I wanted to make a card to cheer her up. Think this little guy will do the trick?

I picked up this stamp set by Penny Black yesterday evening at the one and only local scrapbooking store in our area (aside from the chains). I'd gone there to pick up one stamp I ordered, and came home with this set as well. It's called "Hugs" and it's got lots of really sweet images.

I colored the little hedgehog with Copics: E51, E31, and E33, C-1, and C-3, R20, G20, G21, G24, R24, R27, and YR04, B02, B04, BG10, and Y15. I gave him some grass, then dotted it with dandelions with the tip of my Y15.

The sentiment is also from the same set. I stamped it in StazOn (my Memento Tuxedo Black is drying out) and mounted both sentiment and image on some blue Georgia Pacific cardstock.

I chose some red dotty paper from My Mind's Eye and punched the bottom with my Fiskar's threading water punch. I layered some green vine paper from the same collection underneath for a little color contrast. All this was adheared to white Bazzill cardstock.

Isn't this ribbon great? It's from one of the dollar bins at Michaels. The company listed is Studio 18. Don't think I've ever heard of them before. Anyway, I tied that in a bow at the top, then added my elements. I popped off the image with dimentional adhesive, and the right side of the sentiment as well. The left side I adhered with regular Tombow Mono dot roller to keep it the same height as the image.

I hope you enjoyed my card for today! Talk to you girls again soon!
