Hangin' In at Friday Sketchers 87

Happy Friday, Everyone!!! I hope you have all had a magnificent week!!! My week has been terrific and all because of your kind words, prayers, and best wishes!!! Gosh with so many of your thoughts right next to my heart how can I not be back full steam ahead very soon?!?!? Thank each one of you who took the time to leave me such kind and sweet words...I showed them to the doctor and PA yesterday on my Blackberry...and their response (after fainting...LOL) was to tell me they told me I am on countdown now...and I have my flannel PJ's and socks all ready for whatever!!! hahahah We are supposed to have a foot of snow this weekend so I might be going to the hospital on Tuesday with the Fire Department...but heck, I figure if they can rescue cats from trees, surely they can get me to Asheville to the hospital!!! hahhahah

This week at Friday Sketchers 87 we are being hosted by the magnificently talented and lovely Jeanette from Canada who has given us a lovely sketch to work with...I found that it was excellent for a larger hÄnglar & stÄnglar image that I haven't been able to use before. Thank you so much, Jeanette!!!

I used Bazzill for the card base, PTI for all matting, and all of the DP is BG Sugar Rush...such cute papers, too!!! All panels on the card were machine stitched and the image was colored with Copics. To the outside I just added several coordinating heart buttons tied with twine and made an oval nestie with computer generated sentiment which continues to the inside of the card. The last thing I added was a pair of tiny clothespins to the sentiment oval...I have been waiting forever to use those cute things!!!

For the inside of the card I just added some pink paper doilies, several pink satin Bow-Easy bows, and a heart nestie with the remainder of the sentiment!!!

Please check out all the wonderful sample cards posted by the Friday Sketchers Design team, and hopefully you will play along and post your own creation on the Friday Sketchers blog where you will find that Totally Stampalicious! is sponsoring a very nice prize this week!


Thank you so much for dropping by!! I will have another post a little later in the day with my Just Magnolia card, the winner of the Red Sweet Stuff, and maybe another!! Enjoy your Friday wherever you are...Big hugs!!!
