Heart Strings

Hi!  It's been a rather hectic week here!  The small man is in his second week of swim lessons and, though he is loving them, it has thrown our whole evening routine out of whack!  Everything is just a little bit later and by the time he is in bed, I'm exhausted.  Twice this week I have tried to sit down and color only to give up and go to bed.  But I do have one completed card to share!

I've used Krista's adorable new Saturated Canary nurse, Heart Strings, to make a get well card.  I don't like it when people don't feel well, and I thought this would make the recipient smile!  She is colored with Copics and cut & matted using the Long Rectangles Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  The sketch is Sketch Saturday (#320).  Papers are My Mind's Eye - So Sophie: Graceful.  I added organdy ribbon, flowers, and pearls plus a My Favorite Things sentiment.  It's from a set called Bunny Slippers and I cut it using a Classic Circles Nestabilities die (Spellbinders).



I have more Saturated Canary images printed and ready to play with.  Lots from other companies too!  But my dance card feels rather packed from here on out...  Tomorrow, after work and swim and the usual nightly routine, I have to clean a bit plus I really need to make at least one card!  Girls' night with an old friend Friday, a bit more work and Saturday shenanigans with Kayne, then Sunday coffee with another friend and a cookout at my brother's to round out the weekend.  Thank goodness I have a "me time" vacation day scheduled at the end of next week!  But not before I hit the beach with my best friend, one teen, twin tweens, and a preschooler!  Seems like I'm going to need it!

Hope your week is going swimmingly! And thanks for stopping in!
