Under the weather? Add a little sparkle!

This was the feeling in my household for a few days! My dh had contracted strep throat and luckily did not pass it along to anyone else! At the same time, I was asked to make a get well card for a friend who had surgery... appropriately timed I think! : ) I wanted to make this card cheery using some colorful dp by American Crafts.

I stamped the image from MFT's Rain or Shine and paper pieced her outfit using the same dp. I colored in the rest of the image with my Copics and added the grey cloud to the corner. I used my large SU! Oval punch for the sentiment and added some dots around. I finished the card with some ribbon and clear Dew Drops and popped up the image and sentiment. I hope this will cheer her up!

Materials Used: Riding Hood Red, American Crafts dp, White, MFT-Rain or Shine, unknown ribbon, Dew Drops, foam adhesive, Copics, Going Grey, Basic Grey, Ruby Red, Night of Navy.

This was made for Amate Studios for the 4th of July. I took a frame pendant and added a Ranger Capsule, Clear UTEE, and a 1x1 glass slide to create this. In the capsule, I added some micro beads, star confetti, and clear confetti to make this pendant a shaker. I finished it off with some Taylored Expressions Tiny Twinkles. For complete instructions to make your own pendant, check it here.

I have many more projects to share tomorrow and your chance to win your own jewelry component to create something fabulous! I am juggling a few things at time and getting ready to head out to CHA in Orlando at the end of the month!! Be sure to definitely check out the MFT Forum on SCS on Monday when I share with you July's creations using your MFT Stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!! I appreciate it!
