I'm So Sick......

............of the weather!! I mean seriously, last week it was freezing cold and snowy, and now it is warm and rainy. Can the weather get any crazier?? It was 73 yesterday here, unbelievable!! As you all know(if you read my blog daily which I sure hope you do, and if you're not, you should, LOL), I had my nieces all weekend, and I really didn't get to stamp, so today, I am playing catch up. This card is for Jen del Muro's sketch for you to try. She posts one every Saturday and always has awesome samples to show you. I started with a Apricot Appeal base(5 1/4 sq), then layered it with Pretty in Pink and Whisper White. The ribbon is from the retired SU ribbon originals Flirty and also the current ribbon original Beachfront. I had to put the brads in the corners, cause you know I love them!! The images are from Just So Hoppy from Gina K. and the sentiment is from SU All Holidays. The chick was colored with SU markers and so were the butterflies. I went over the chick with a blender pen and the butterflies with a Sakura glitter pen. I sponged the edges to give it a softened look. The spots on the scallops were put on using my gel pen. That is all for now, off to eat lunch and stamp some more. By the way, thanks for all the replies and inquiries about my niece Madison. She is fine, in fact, after we got home, she slept about 30 minutes, never threw up again, and immediately wanted cheetos and peanut butter sandwiches. What can you do!!??
