Baskets of Mojo

I came home from our Women's Retreat yesterday to find out one of my friends from church has had a recurrence of  cancer and is in the hospital again.  She is a very private person and wants no visitors, so some cards and flowers will be in order.  She loves to sew and knit, so I made her this card using the Mojo Monday 77 sketch:

DSCF3373

I've used a variety of cardstocks here from SU, K&Company, and Crate Paper, but they all seemed to work nicely together.  And I actually used my gray Copic to outline my image!  Nervous, but I did it!  I don't know why I was so nervous---I think I was afraid it would be too dark.

DSCF3351 Our retreat was very nice;  we rented a wonderful large cabin near Raystown Lake, PA, which is near Altoona.  Very pretty, but very, very remote.  If a bear had walked up onto our porch, it would not have surprised me!  As you can see, although the weather was warm, it was cloudy.  We had a great time, but I came home quite tired!  So I spent today catching up and getting ready for some workshops this week.  Thanks for visiting!

  6. OK now. THAT is the cardstock I need for my victorian easter egg, right? I'm ready to DITCH that egg. It's not worth the misery.

    I'm not one to use blue. I don't know why, since that card is so delicate looking.

    This is what I look like when I'm changing my mind (#) not pretty.
