Welcome Pink Polka Dotted Emerietta


I took some artistic liberties...okay....a lot of artistic liberties, with this week's Verve sketch.  The one circle became a heart and moved to the left side, the buttons became the bow and the sentiment panel was the magically moving hidden half circle.  So I'm bobbing and weaving so the Verve police won't catch me LOL!

Since I did a baby boy card for the Mojo Monday sketch, I figured I had to make a baby girl card so I had one of each in my stash.  Emery became Emerietta and a pink, polka dotted elephant was born :)   I paired her with this fabulous Sandy Lion paper and some pleated pink ribbon I won on Sharon Johnson's blog last year.  Also used my  new nestie heart circles which my blogging buddy Tanis "got" me for my birthday.  She included a Michael's GC with my birthday card and I was able to snag them at 40% off at Mike's - score!  Thanks Tanis!! I love them and will think of you every time I use them (((hugs))).

I'm still not one hundred percent healthy but moving in the right direction.  Some have mentioned it is a three week bug - ugh!!  If that's the case, one down two to go.  Hopefully it won't take that long, and if it does, at least I've had a heads up.

Off to tackle my busiest day of the week.   Have a great day and thanks for sharing a bit of yours with me today.

Oh gee whiz.. feel better sooner than later. That stinks. Your card is no reflection of your ickies. It looks fantastic. What a sweet little image with that paper. Great job.

How sweet! I think we are both into polka dot elephants today. Love your pleated ribbon.

Sounds like a slow recovery from your illness. My youngest son has pneumonia but is improving, thankfully. Take care.
