Q.T. Hooty


Well, we are back from vacation--don't you always feel like you need a vacation FROM vacation?  Laundry, (including a repair for the dryer that bit the dust the day before we left),  putting things away, cleaning your dusty house, staring aghast at the garden that got away from you in just one week.....sometimes it doesn't feel as if it is worth it!  But we had a nice quiet time visiting my dad; no stamping time, but I did play with some new Copics and colored in some RAK images I had!

I came home to find out that a young woman in our church was in the hospital; her mom is a friend and customer, so I reached for the little sick QT Hooty image from Pink Cat Studio  to make her a card.  I used (roughly) the Fall to Layout Sketch #55 from Clean & Simple Blog:

Fall to Layout #55

and used some new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird 6x6 paper from Hope Stamps Eternal:


Sentiment is from PTI; other cardstocks are Bashful Blue and Summer Sun; twill is from Taylored Expressions; button & flower are both retired from SU!  I used the "Hooooope you get better" sentiment on the inside as well!  I hooooope she likes it!  This is also for today's Clean & Simple challenge #30 at SCS, which is to remake a card; I chose this card from a while back:



Obviously, a different image; different papers, a little simpler!







Thanks for visiting today---I am going to try to get caught up on my Reader--but at over 900 posts, I doubt that will happen!!!  Have a wonderful day!

Very cute! Good luck with that catch-up plan. Sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and hit that "mark as read" button - saves the old eyesight! ~chris

I LOVE your layout on the first get well card! It's just so cute! It IS hard to come back from vacation. I totally agree! Hopefully you're caught up and settled soon!
