Missing You

Well, after all three of us being sick over the weekend, the hubs and the babe both seemed like they were feeling much better yesterday.  Now if only I could get rid of this ridiculous cough...whenever I cough, our dog Sadie gets up and looks real concerned and won't leave me alone for several minutes.  Which is cute, I'm glad she cares about me, but it makes it hard to do things when she's all up in my chili.  (I love my girl.)

Anyway, between coughing fits I did make a card yesterday.

This is the first time I've ever tried to pleat a ribbon like that and I'm not 100% sure I like it.  Plus I think maybe the ribbon should be lower and the sentiment higher but there were so many glue dots on the ribbon that there's no way it's moving.  Hmm.

I used the Sunday Stamps color challenge:

Basic Black, Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green, and Whisper White was how I interpreted the colors.  Granny Apple Green isn't really a good match, but it was the closest I could get in current SU! colors.

I also used the current sketch from Fab Friday:

And that's it for me today.  Ryan and I didn't go to the Y yesterday since he still had a bit of a runny nose, but I think we'll try to go today.  Which means I need to get him up and dressed and fed.  Cheers, y'all!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Oh So Eclectic
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Lovely Lipstick, Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green
Paper:  Lemon Lime Twist, Basic Black, Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Layering Circles Framelits, Up & Away Thinlits, LLT ombre ribbon, Dimensionals, glue dots

Very pretty card and an interesting technique! Pretty colors, too. I like it.

Hope you get to feeling better, especially since we're supposed to be out there on Sunday . . . and I don't want to bring cooties back to Texas with me. Ha! Looking forward to seeing you.

Ugh, I HATE summer sickies - feel better. In the meantime - what a great solution to BOTH challenges! I like the pleat - at least it's a nice fine ribbon - it LOOKS very cool! I also love your circle layers - I so often forget that the joy of having those layering sets it to actually DO the layers, lol. Love it! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday AND Sunday Stamps!
