Thursday, September 30, 2010


Hello, it's Thursday already!  Where does the time go?  Rick is feeling so much better, but today he has been tired from the time he got up today.  Has dosed off several times and slept sound in the chair, think his body finally caught up with the surgery and all the drugs.  He is weaning back on the pain meds and will probably be off them tomorrow, providing that there is no pain.  Otherwise, he is a good patient!

Today's card is for the Challenge at Paper Cupcakes.  It's a challenge where they supplied a picture for inspiration, the picture being autumn leaves.  I chose the yellow and green hues in the leaves to create this card. The adorable image was graciously provided free by the artist, Nina.  The papers are from DCWV, The Cafe Mediterranean.  I colored the image with Copics and added glitter to the flower frosting.  Colored Kaiser pearls with Copics to match.  Sentiment is by Savy Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope your Thursday is fantastic. Until later.................
