PP547 Get Better Soon

Happy Sunday, peeps!  I hope you're having a good weekend so far!  I had some fun with my stamping friends yesterday...always good to get together!  Today's Paper Players challenge is a sketch from Laurie! I do love sketches!!!  Here we go:

I wanted to make a card for a friend who's going through a rough patch, and Back On Your Feet hasn't seen much ink lately, so I got out my stamps, paper and ink, and here's what I came up with:


I just love the look on that poor turtle's face!  Anyway, I used some Soft Succulent cardstock and designer paper, using the Stitched Rectangle and Scalloped Contour dies, then decided to add a small Soft Seafoam mat to break up the color.  It matched my little turtle too; he was stamped in Stazon Black, then watercolored with Soft Seafoam and Soft Succulent inks, then fussy-cut and popped up:

I added a couple of sentiments from the same set and mounted it all on a Basic White card that was embossed with Tasteful Textile embossing folder.  Simple but cute!  I hope you'll play along with our sketch this week...it's so versatile and the design team has made some wonderful samples as well!  Check them all out at the Paper Players, then come play along with us!  Thanks for visiting today!

Here's a picture of Cassidy next to Chloe and Lucinda, two bronze statues of goats in the Children's Garden at Longwood.  You can click on their names to read about them...they're life-size! And they won't eat anything they're not supposed to!!


Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Longwood is beautiful! We've been a few time with my inlaws but not in summer yet! Looks like you had a fun visit! Love the card! That turtle is so cute even though he's having a rough time. And he looks great with the Soft Succulent! Hope you have a fun upcoming weekend!

Love this card, LeAnne. That turtle always makes me smile! He is layered perfectly and I'm sure he'll get back on his feet real soon. Hope you're enjoying your week.

Such a sweet card, LeAnne! I love the Soft Seafoam paired with Soft Succulent. The Scalloped Contour dies are quickly becoming one of my favorites. What a great card to pick up someone's spirits! And what a wonderful story about the artist behind the goats!!! I am so glad you shared it. Have an awesome 4th of July!
