A Sale and a Sketch

So, since my last post a TON has happened, so I will try to keep this brief(HAVE to get to bed!!)!!! On Thursday, my sister and I took my nephew to get his 2month immunizations. He cried a lot, as most babies do, and then he passed out. When I left, about and hour after they were done, he was fine. Within the next hour his poor little leg swelled up and he started screaming like nothing my sister had ever heard before. She rushed him to the ER, where my mom was working(thank goodness), and they decided that he must have either had an allergy to one of the shots or an injection site reaction to them. Needless to say, we were all scared to death. I don't think a single one of us got a good nights sleep that night!! I saw him today, and he is doing much better, but boy did he give us a scare. My sister informed me that I had NOT heard his pain cry yet, and if I could help it, I should never have to!!
Okay, enough babble, here is my card!! I made this card for three reasons. The first being that it was made using Jen del Muro's Sketch for you to try. The second was to announce the special back to school sale at Paper Pretties. Here are the details!!
.....If you spend $25 you get a free sentiment.
.....If you spend $50 you get a free sentiment and a free roll of American Crafts ribbon
.....If you spend $100 you get a free sentiment, a free roll of ribbon and FREE SHIPPING!!Wahooo!
The sale will run from Friday the 15th all the way until the 30th!
There is no coupon code or anything like that you just need to enter your choice of free
merchandise in the comments box when you check out!
Awesome right!!
My last reason was so that I would have a card to send to my niece for her first day back to school. I decided that my Off To School Sophia was the perfect image to use to send to her. I colored my Sophia with my SU markers(which qualifies it for the ways to use it challenge for this week too) and blended it with my aqua painter. I added some silver brads to the top corners of the main image panel and also the top and side panel that were made with some Summer Picnic DSP and Old Olive card stock. I tied some white taffeta and some ruby ribbon from one of my SU Ribbon Original packs around the top too. The apple is from my SU Tart and Tangy set and was stamped twice, once in Old Olive and once in Ruby Red. I then cut out the red apple, popped it up, layered all my circle panels and then added crystal effects to make it shiny.

Well, that is it for me now...I hope to get to stamp a lot tomorrow, but we will see!!LOL!!
