Wrung Out! Hung out!

Hi friends.  First of all, be sure to go sign up for my Blog Candy, if you haven't already.  Also, a warm southern welcome to my new followers.  It's great to have you here. :)
 I used two wonderful, free digital stamps from Create with TLC to make this card.  Be sure to check out her blog.  There's a blog hop going on right now, among other things.  There's always something fun going on there. :)
 I colored my images with Prismacolor markers, Prismacolor pencils and ink pads.  I inked the edges of all the papers and added some baker's twine, which my sister, Sheila, sent me as a gift and I've been hoarding. lol  A simple, but fun card, especially when you know I made it for someone who had to under go a Colonoscopy.  I thought the sentiment was very appropriate for the way you feel after preparing for a Coloonoscopy. ;)

Challenges:
Create with TLC - World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop
One Stitch At A Time - Use a Digi
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers - Get Well/Thinking of You
Mark's Finest Papers - Use Polka Dots

I had a bit of excitement yesterday.  I went to get out of bed and my little dog, Princess, was sitting at my feet with a small snake she had killed there in our bedroom.  Hubby was home and disposed of the nasty thing for me and sealed the place we think the snake got in.  Princess received very lavish praise.  Such is life in an old wood frame home.

Blessings
  • I received some very special happy mail, not just once, but twice this week.  How blessed can a gal be?!?
  • Hubby brought me a pot of pretty, miniature mums to brighten up my craft room for Autumn.
  • Hubby and my dd each earned a $25 gift certificate.  What a help with the holidays approaching!
Have a terrific day!

Inky hugs!
Shelly
