For You!

Mo is having a Dream Team Call!
I love her images so it would be an honor
to be considered.  I love the image I chose
for this card! Hard to say if it is my favorite
since I love so many of her images.  This
one seems to be perfect for get well cards
or sorry cards!

Gem Of A Challenge
Another get well card!  This card is the 2nd card I 
made for my friend who had surgery the other day.
The first was a support card for the fact she has
(Maybe now had) cancer.  This one was for her
hospital stay and recovery.  Since my mother 
lives far away, she is like a mother to me.  Her daughter
is my age and we are like sisters.  She told everyone
 in the hospital she was waiting for her other daughter
 to get there.  When I arrived they looked at me funny
because for obvious reasons I do not look like
her daughter!  We laughed anyway!

This is my attempt at darker skin.
Still a work in progress.  This is about 16
layers of color.  I know there is an easier way
just have not figured it out yet.

 Close up of stitching and MS punch with
ribbon woven through

Another panel with stitching


Another sentiment from Whimsy
New Martha Stewart Double Arches Punch
This is one of the larger punches which is 
nice because the paper sizes are
different than most of the punches.

Cardstock: Paper Studio
Designer Paper: Mandarin Modern Paper Pack by Tapestry
Ribbon: Offray
Sentiments: Get Well Soon- My Sentiments exactly
Sentiments: Sending Hugs & Kisses, and Happy Thoughts-
Ink: Distress Ink- Marmalade

Perforadora Para Double Edge

Great job, Stacey! Man, you have a lot of sick friends! Hahha I'm glad that I'm just the "sick in the mind" kind of friend but then that means no get well card for me as there's no hope! lol

Annika said...

Stacey, don't you dare to think that your colouring is in any way less good than mine!!You just have a different style - I have tried a look like that and it NEVER WORKED for me, just couldn't control the pigment with a stump properly!

Thanks for the "Tweens With 'Tude" suggestion on muy blog.. I am not sure either if they talk on the 'phone' anymore lol, but I do have one in production with a cell phone... she is texting. If you come up with anymore ideas pop over =)

Annika said...

Stacey, I can't get over of how amazingly lovely you are!!! Boy I feel a bit bad about all that kraft-related whingeing... I so-so-so appreciate your thought and if you were living anywhere in the neighbourhood I'd be over in a jiffy with some lil' muffins and a BIG hug!

Apricot Bubbles said...

Hi Stacey!

Yes, the Banana Bread came out very delicious! If we would live nearby I would have brought you a few slices! :-) I love to bake in the wintertime... the whole house smells so delicious then!
Have a wonderful week!
