Easter Emma

Good morning!  I'm locking myself in my girl cave for the day, and working on getting out some cards to some special people.  This card is for a sweet couple from church.  She had knee replacement surgery this week, and he has trouble getting around at all anymore.  They are on my mind, so Emma is going to pay them a visit, and hopefully let them know they are in our thoughts and prayers.  This needed to be very CAS, so I decided to follow the sketch at All That Scraps. As always, I had to turn the sketch! 

The card base is another of the packaged set that I got free last month with my a*muse order. How cool is that? The other dotted piece is also from a*muse - the color is Bermuda.  So pretty!  The stamp is C.C. Designs Sugarplums Easter Emma.  The sentiment is an Amy R. sentiment, also from C.C. Designs. All coloring is done with copics. The striped piece, and solid mat around the image are from Echo Park's 'Summer Days' collection.

 I will be entering this card in the Wednesday Challenge at All That Scraps.

I'm also entering this in the new challenge at Oozak - Anything Goes.  If you haven't ever been to Oozak, it's well worth your time to visit. And how much fun that they have their own challenge now!

HELP!  If any of you have experience in face painting, I'd love for you to drop me an email and give me some tips and pointers!  For example... how many choices should I allow, etc.  DH has graciously volunteered me to work for two days at the elementary schools in the nearby city he works in.  This will be toward the end of the month, so I have some time before I need to hyperventilate!  lol...

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend in store.  Church service on Sunday will be a 6:00 a.m. sunrise service on a lake - it's always a blessing!  We have a shopping trip planned tomorrow - DH needs some new work duds.  Don't know if we'll stay in town and do everything at JCP, or if we will move on... anyway, if I don't get back, have a wonderful Good Friday - hope you are blessed beyond measure!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Patti J.
