Hugs & Kisses Card

Hi Friends! Well I'm sad to say my cold did not go away. I'm a little annoyed by it because my nose is now running like it's on a marathon. Argggh. For the first 3 days, I had a major stuffiness but no runny nose. . .just feeling yucky and a sinus headache. Well I woke up this morning with the runny nose.

I actually made this card about two weeks ago but didn't post it. I had it as a draft on my blog but forgot it was there. This card is a hodge-podge of pieces of scraps that I initially created for other cards but for one reason or another decided not to use them.



Anyway. . .do you see the yellow oval shape? Well, I think I messed up on my coloring. . .it looked splotchy so I decided to heat emboss it with clear embossing powder to camouflage it. LOL! Th heart shape in the back was intended for another card but it didn't fit well so I set it aside and decided to use it on this card instead. Actually there's a lot of fixes on this card but with a little tweaking. . .it's salvageable. Even when I mess up on something, I rarely disgard it. There's always a way to fix it.

I colored the image with my Copic Markers and added a little bit of glitter.

I really can't tell you the recipe of this card because it's scrap pieces, I can't quite remember who made the products.

Anyway. . .I'd love to chit-chat more but my runny nose is annoying me right now.

Hope y'all have a fabulous day!!

Oh Maria, I am so sorry to hear you aren't feeling better! Izzy has kind of gone down hill today too. I am hoping that it is just a minor set back and both you and her will be better tomorrow~

Now onto this stunning creation! I love the patchwork feel to it! Really fits with the image and your coloring is stunning! You are the best seriously! I look at things and think they need to be thrown away and you see them and create something like this! Simply amazing!

Smiles,
janna

Poor you, first a bad wrist then a cold. I think you need to make yourself a get well card. That card is lovely that you have done here. I like the rich colours that you have chosen for it.

Hey Maria

What a cute, cute card! I love what you did with all the scrap pieces. I usually put mine in a drawer and then forget about them!

I know about feeling bad - I have the "bug". Hope you are feeling better!
