Hanglar "Thinking of You"

Well Happy Monday - Wow what a weekend - I had no new card to show today - I was so tired and sore from the all of the fire activities on Saturday, I just did not have any energy to make a card yesterday for today. Thankfully I have one I made a week or two ago using one of the Splitcoast Stampers Sketches, that I had not had a chance to show yet.



This is one of my Hanglar images sent to me by a very sweet friend. I have colored her with my Copics, and then sewed her to a mat with a blanket stitch. Then she and the bear are high lighted with white gel pen.

The card layout is Sketch 213, from Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenges. I turned it on its side. All of the papers are from My Minds Eye Laundry Line.. I think it has been a couple of weeks. But I am pretty sure. I followed the sketch and cut the pieces to match, each piece is placed onto a piece of cardstock to mat and sew down. The sentiment is punched out with Stampin Up Word Window punch, and a larger piece punched as a mat. The flower is a punch from EK Success Retro Flower from the same paper collection. I love that all the pieces have a glitter to them. A small pearl button for the center of the flower. It is a great layout don't you think? If you ever loose your mojo... check out the sketch challenge there - it really helps!



So today I am going to catch up on some cards - I had so many great crafting plans for this weekend, and I didn't get to do any of it, so today I think I am going to take a play day. As soon as I start some laundry and pay a few bills.. HA! Play day!

Hope you have a wonderful Monday and don't forget my Blog Candy!
