It has been a long time since I have posted anything. If I am being honest, it took a lot to create this card tonight. My last post was right after my son had surgery. He has healed perfectly but still can’t lift extra heavy objects until Thanksgiving. We left to babysit for my nephews in Atlanta over the weekend. The boys were great but I really didn’t look forward to riding in the car for 8 hours. After the long weekend, we came back home and my family promptly got the flu! We didn’t physically go to the doctor, but from what I hear there is no seasonal flu going around right now, we had a mild case of H1N1. We all felt like crap for about a week. Once the crappiness leaves, you still have NO energy and a lasting cough. To add to my ailments, I pulled a muscle in my lower back from coughing!
So when I say it has taken all my energy to sit here and work on a card, it really has. I decided to play catch up at 365 Cards Super sketchy Sunday.
I picked up this new set from The Cat’s Pajamas while I was in Georgia. I thought it would work well with the sketch this week. I began by using papers from My Mind’s Eye. Next I stamped the image and sentiment using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cutting them out using my Labels 1 nesties. I colored the image with my copics then distressed the edges with Tea Dye ink. I added a touch of Polar White Flower Soft and a hint of diamond glaze to the candy cane. Here is a closer view of the cute bear -
