FINALLY a card!

Good grief, my friends....I am sooo sorry for the non-activity the past few days. I appreciate all your kind words & for the most part, we are all better. I'm still pretty tired, but I'm dealing, lol. Today was the start of our Spring Break, & we spent it at various doctor & dentist appointments. All went well....no cavities...so now we can just relax & have fun the rest of the week :)

I finally finished a card that I started last week Wednesday.....you know....before the nasty bug found its way into our home & disrupted our lives. Meet Jenny!!



Yet another image from the latest High Hopes release. Don't you all wonder how Crissy has the time to draw all of these amazing images AND make all the UBER terrific cards she does?? She is my idol!! Anyway, the stamp is called Jenny's Glowbugs & I tell ya, she makes me wanna run outside & catch some fireflies!! Ok, well, it's about 40 degrees right now, so I guess I'll wait a few months! I colored her with Prismas & gamsol....the papers are all Basic Grey Marrakech, except for the orange which is Bazzill Navel....some sewing....some Dew Drops....& some Primas adorned with some Martha foliage.



Here's a close up of Jenny....I was hoping you could see the clear embossing I did on the jar, but I don't think it shows. Maybe if you click on it??

I could NOT get a good picture of the inside. It's boring, really, I added some of the Marrakech papers & the same Bazzill....used my Martha lace punch...it really looks like all my other insides, lol.

Well thank you for being patient with me. I must get busy, I have a LOT of catching up to do. I still have to do a card for the Sunday challenge....a great sketch by Jeanne....& I'd love to get a card done with the POTM stamps....so much to do...so little time, lol!!
