A Little Sweetness

Good Morning!

Well, what a week! The kids have been home on vacation which has been great. They love having each other to play with and the weather has been nice and so we've had lots of time outside. But, it's not been a good week for our poor kitty Bella! On Monday she broke her leg and had to have emergency surgery yesterday to fix everything. The poor thing is hobbling around now and we feel so badly for her, but at least she's OK and back at home. A kitty in a cast, NOT a pretty sight! I've not had a chance to visit and blog much this week. I apologize and hope to be back to normal next week.

I did have a bit of crafting time yesterday and boy did I need it! I grabbed some images that my friend Ann sent me and had a fun coloring session and low and behold...a card was made too!

I love this sweet Tilda with Tulip image. She's so cute and perfect for a cheerful Spring card. I used the sketch from Papertake Weekly with some BG Green at Heart papers. The image was colored with Copics. The paper edges were distressed and then stitched on the sewing machine. I finished this card with some eyelets, ribbon, and this beautiful rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.

This card also fits the challenges at:
LaLa Land: Shabby Chic
All That Scraps: Sewing on your project
Crafty Creations: Distressing
Going Grey Challenges: use 3 embellishments (eyelets, ribbon, and flower)

Thanks for stopping by this morning, be sure to stop back this later today to see who won my Just Magnolia blog hop candy! The draw is open until Noon EST today and I will announce the winner this afternoon.

Happy Stamping,
