hAnglar "Hang in There"




First let me say THANK YOU for all of the wonderful comments yesterday - wow really meant so much to Hubby and I both.




Today I have a card that I had made earlier in the week. (Still didn't get any crafting done yesterday...) But I do love this card, I think this is one of my very favorite hAnglar images. I think it is all of the background objects, and how fun it is to color.
Of course it is colored with my Copics and high lighted with white gel pen. The bubbles are stickles, and really look real in person.
My card base is a light yellow card stock, the pattern papers are all Making Memorise Chloe's Closet. I picked three patterns, cut down and inked with light green ink. I matted the image on a scrap of the same yellow card stock. Inked the edges and then gel pen stitched the edges of the card and the image. The sentiment is from Stamps by Judith, and for some reason just seemed to fit this one today. I stamped it on a K&Co. label. Punched three EK Success Retro flowers from Chloe's Closet paper, and Martha Stewart frond leaves inked the edges, and used Making Memories mini button brads for centers.
I hope you like this one - as I really had fun with it. Now if only I had that much fun actually doing my laundry - as it has really piled up this week.
Today I am taking MIL out to do a few errands, hopefully not a long day as I have a bunch to catch up on here at home. Plus I really would like some blogging time when I get home. I think I need some Internet reading... I have really missed it the past few days, funny how I feel like I haven't finished my day until I get to read my friends blogs.
Have a wonderful Friday - again thanks for all of the kind comments and support -
HUGS
