Feel B E T T E R, friend!

Hi, friends!

This one is for a {*heart!*} friend who's been feeling "under the weather" and for any of you who've been struggling with seasonal nuisances, OR worse! It's SUCH a beautiful time of year and NOT okay to be sick... so I say.. Get Well! { ~ sending my crafty best prayers to you all for wellness! 'Nuff said!}



A little paper crafting, is, for card-crazed crafters, like US, MEDICINAL ~ right? So craft ON, friends! A few challenges made me feel a little more crafty this evening, so I got busy with THIS SKETCH from the fun folks at Card Patterns!



Sprinkle in some TEXTURE with the JUGS gals!





AND, a bunch of COLOR, courtesy of SPCC!




Whoopee! Do you mind if I ring the bell for "dumped old TACKLE"!?!?! Rinnnnnnnnggg! Rinnng! {Whoop - whoop! HELLO, I used W - I - R - E! } AND parted... P-A-R-T-E-D with Tim Holtz SPROCKETS! WHOOOOOOOOOO! {Well, AFTER I sanded, painted and CRYSTAL effected... but STILL... it counts!} Wahoooo!




So, there! GET BETTER, feel better AND have a great day! Remember, your FRIENDS are thinking of YOU!

oh my gosh, this is cracking me up. The image is funny enough, but with the CB embossing (I have that folder & have NEVER used!) and the hardware, it will definitely make someone perk up & smile! You are just so dang clever, girl!!! That coloring is pretty darn good, too. He reminds me of Lost in Space---oops, I am dating myself. "Danger, Will Robinson!"

Hugs,
Vanessa

Wow! Wow! You put a lot of work into a card! Love all the stuff you used, but I really love the shadow of the robot.....you're so artsy!

Karen said...

Hey there! My teeth were chattering until I saw this! Cold? What cold?? I can't possibly cold when I see something HOT like this little number!! Love it when you get challenge happy, dump tackle, and remake something so that its almost unrecognizable as the thing it was (I was wondering if those were Tim's......you totally transformed them!!!)!!! C-U-U-U-T-E!!
