Good Monday morning everyone. We had a simply beautiful weekend here weatherwise with lots of sun and very warm temperatures. Supposed to be more of the same today but then it all goes downhill.
Of course, with nice weather comes sitting outside with a good book while your husband and son build a shed. Tee hee
An update on my foot... has been feeling better the last few days... able to walk heel to toe again with no sharp shooting pains, but still experiencing an ache. I went back to the gym this morning and instead of the treadmill I did the bike. The combination of the movement and real shoes didn't help things so I am sitting at my desk with an ice pack on my foot while typing. I will be heading to work this morning but will be sitting down when I can to take it easy.
I am a very lucky girl... my girlfriend Cindy had me do a little favour for her a while back and I was happy to do it for her. As a thank you, she sent me a brand new JammieBella from Stamping Bella. This is one of my favourite Bella images... just love her little teddy bear!
This is another card that I made a week and a half ago during my blitz of Sketch Challenges over at Splitcoast. This is Sketch Challenge #122. I'm glad I didn't get ahead of myself and start adhering layers before I realized that the Cool Caribbean card looked too plain in the layout. I was able to easily use my Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp with Cool Caribbean ink to add a little interest in the background.
It's also the first time I've used these particular pieces from my Hodgepodge Hardware. In fact, I really haven't used much from the tin at all. What a shame, eh? I should pull it out more often! I just hate that I have to buy a whole new tin of the items instead of just the ones I'm running low on.
Bella was coloured using Stampin' Up! Markers... except the Cool Caribbean on her jammies... for that I used my blender pen and the ink from the Cool Caribbean pad.
