Thanks for coming to my Rescue

When I had my sinus surgery on Monday, my parents got up at 2 am so that they could drive to get me to the hospital for my procedure for 6 am. On the way, my Dad, actually asked me in case I would have to stay in the hospital overnight and they would stay at my house...what would he need to do to take care of my cats...that was enough to put me into shock. However, when I asked him what the surgeon said after I woke up he told me that Dr. Anderson said to get rid of my cats because they were the cause of all my sinus problems. I had a friend tell me that I should have had my Dad clean the kitty litter since I am not suppose to bend or lift for the week, but I didn't think to have him do it. šŸ¤£I am so thankful to have my parents that were willing to come drive me and stay in case I needed. This is the card I made for them.
The image is from Bugaboo, Mini set flower block silhouettes and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I inked all the edges of the papers with Memento ink.  The embossed image I sprayed with Glimmer Mist that was a light pink in color.  I used Distress Oxide Inks and blended them over the stamp. Then I mist water over the image and heat it to set the color.

Mittens Warm Winter Wishes

This is my second card for the Catch the Bug Saturday Challenge which is a BINGO challenge.  For my card I used all the items on the BINGO and for the Player's Choice I did monochromatic and sparkle.  Last night we got snow so I will have to see how much it ends up being since it was predicted to be 3-5 inches. I outlined the  snowflakes in Sakura jelly glitter pen to add some sparkle.  The white background has snowflakes dry embossed on it.

As You Like It - Favorite Pearls or Buttons and why?  I have both on my card because I can't decide I like them both and find that the pearls accents where the button gives texture and color.

Love Mouse

After the week of challenges for the Birthday Bash (which you have until Sunday at 1 pm to complete) there is a new Saturday Challenge at Catch the Bug today.  I actually made two samples because I think the team went all out last week and didn't have a lot made for this one.  It's a BINGO challenge and I did ALL the items which I like to do and the Player's Choice is die cut.

Birthdays it's all about lots of pink

Well I finished a whole week of Monster cards for the Catch the Bug Birthday Bash and I also made some masculine birthday cards so to be fair I needed a more feminine one.  So I went all pink with this birthday cake from Scribbles and they are celebrating a birthday too.  I added pearls to the layers of the cake and some to the corner of the card.  The sentiment is from TLC, Create.

Birthday candles

Today is day 6 of the 9th Annual Birthday Bash at Catch the Bug and today is an Oldie but Goodie as well as a Color Challenge.  For my image, I used Monster Birthday Snapshot and a sentiment from TLC, Create.  I remember when my children were young picking the theme of the party, the cake design and the candles too.  Many times I even made their cakes, and it would take me hours to pipe out that buttercream frosting in all those colors! Wow it seems so long ago since my kids are in their 20s.
