Eventful Week!

Hello! Well, it's been an eventful week. Last Wednesday, my stepdad had a heart attack. He's fine, he's fine... now! But it was a little scary, I can assure you. He had 100% blockage in his carotid artery and needed 3 stints. He looked the picture of health when I arrived 10 short hours after it happened! My mom handled it well but I wanted to be with her. I flew out to Panama City Beach, Florida on Wednesday and stayed with them until Saturday. He came home on Friday. We are very thankful it was caught and he was smart enough to let my mom call the ambulance! Glad you are feeling better G'Daddy!

With flying down there unexpectedly and my workload at college, I was glad that I had some new cards that I had created the weekend before to post. Today's post is a cute little gal... You stamp her face on one side of the card and then you have an entirely different stamp for the back side of the card. Isn't she adorable? The stamps are from Art Impressions. I used my Copics to color her. I know I used B91, 95 and 97 for the blue jeans. But I'm unsure about the rest. I'd have to look it up if you are interested. Then I used my CTMH stamp pads to ink the sky with my daubers. Always start with the light ink first and then gently add the darker blue around the edges for dimension. I used a CTMH branch set inked on the sides to add some branches. And I used my Gold Gelly Roll pen to add some sparkle to her tools! She's so cute, huh? Drop me a comment and let me know what you think! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! "I'm just sayin'..."
