I was going to schedule this post to go live in the middle of the week, but realized I would miss the Paper Take Weekly challenge, so it's going live tonight. My hubby and I are off to New York on Tuesday to visit with Jordan, Josslyn and Brielle. Oh happy day! I'm so thrilled to be able to go to see them once again! We've so much planned to do with them while we're there and hoping their parents will have enough time off work to join in the fun! We haven't seen the children for just over 4 months, and I have to tell you that my arms are just itching to hold them again...
Here is the Sketch from Paper Take Weekly...
Also, in anticipation (not!) of my upcoming surgery, I decided to stamp off a bunch of images so that while I'm layed up, I can color! I was thumbing my way through several images I had previously stamped off and pulled out this delightful Tilda With Striped Tights from the Pink Collection. She is available from Diana here at Magnolia-licious. I have several posts also scheduled to go live after my surgery, so please come back to see my other creations.
My wonderful friend, Sandy, recently sent me a huge package of paper she either bought too much of, or had duplicates of, or she just didn't like! Wooohooo! I sure lucked out! So once I had decided on my image I began to pull out dp so see what I like together.
Here is the card I made...
