Just Delightful


How about just a red and white birthday card for today! Is this just a cute, cute, image or what? It's a free digital from Designed 2 Delight. I'm thinking I probably should have made a tent card for the challenge but really didn't realize that until I'd already finished this one. So, what you see is what you get!

I colored the image with Copics and SU markers and then used one of the scalloped circle Nestabilites. This was "popped" up on dimensionals. I again used the Swiss Dots embossing folder on the white part. The layout is from some challenge last week - but I just do not remember which one at this time.

NOTE: I will probably be out of commission for the next couple of days. Jim, my husband, goes in tomorrow to have an angioplatsy (at least I think that is what it's called) - they run the dye up to the ole "ticker" to see what kind of corks he has plugging up everything! Hopefully all they will have to do is insert a couple of stents to un-cork this mess. If not, then I guess we look at something a little more serious than a stent. HOPEFULLY not though. I'm trying to "make light" of all this so he won't be any more nervous than what he already is - and I'm just literally a basket case!!! Anyway, keep me in your thoughts and prayers and I'll be back in a few days. I will attempt to comment on every one's blog as much as I can in the meantime.


Thanks for stopping by...................
