Get Well Little One

The Toodle Loo Soar with it Collection is definately a kids' themed paper but the colors are oh so wonderful so I often grab it for adult cards too. But, in this case, I think this would be a super get well card for a child and I want to look into sending cards to sick little ones. (Right now a group of gals and I make cards for the wounded soldiers but with having so many kid stamps in my collection, because it's a worthy cause!, and it seems that I keep seeing the idea pop up on various blogs and SCS - so it must be an "echo" prompting me to go in that direction)



It really is quite a simple card - I didn't feel like lugging out my sewing machine this week so I grabbed my Running Stitches stamp set, after all, that's what it's for! I colored this little bear with Prismacolored pencils and gamsol and then cut him out so that I could pop him on the white embossed panel - a trick I learned from the talented Chris Olsen!



Card Materials: all stamps and paper from The Angel Company
Stamps: English Everyday Cuties, Running Stitches
Accessories: Toodle Loo Soar with it Collection and cardstock, ribbon, CB embossing plate, nestabilities oval scallop

I hope you have a great weekend - the kids are home today and on Monday and I'm sure I will be like a taxi cab all weekend! Don't forget that there are only a few days left in January to take advantage of the Stamp of the Month specials (I just can't believe January has passed by in a blurr!)
