Miss You Bear

Mornin', y'all!  Ryan has been watching a lot of Bluey lately, so last night he wanted to play doctor like they do in one of the shows.  I was the patient and Ryan performed surgery on me, using a blunt wooden sword and a couple of Nerf missiles as his surgical instruments.  I ended up with toilet paper bandages on one leg, across my belly, and all around my throat, and he is still insisting that I call him Doctor this morning.  So that's fun.

Anyway, I got into my craft room yesterday for the first time in almost a week.  I started with a pretty simple card:

I bought Vertical Blooms in that one-day stamp sale a few months ago specifically for this miss you sentiment.  Let's start with the Festive Friday challenge:

I used natural twine, an animal, and stripes.  Does "miss you" count as a supportive sentiment?  Next up is the Paper Players sketch challenge:

And here is the Sunday Stamps color challenge to round things off:

I used Evening Evergreen, Pebbled Path, and Basic Black from the color palette.  I wanted to work in some Real Red, but once I got the card started, I couldn't figure out a place to use it, so I kept it to just green and neutrals.  I really like Evening Evergreen.

Anyway, it's almost time for me to get Doctor Ryan off to school.  Cheers!

Supplies, all SU!
Stamps:  Vertical Blooms
Ink:  Pebbled Path
Paper:  Evening Evergreen, Basic Black, Pebbled Path, Thick Basic Vanilla, Evening Evergreen DSP

Dear Patient Christy.... I just love the story of the toilet paper. Made me LOL. What a wonderful memory! Oh... and I love your card, too. I love how you kept to the neutrals and that little piece of twine on your bear is the perfect finishing touch.
So glad you shared this with us at Festive Friday and the Paper Players this week
