My late Color Throwdown post

Sorry folks that I am so late with this weeks challenge. I have been sick (hubs too) since Monday and out of work. I am hoping my hubby and I can get into see the doctor today. I thought I was getting better when I suddenly got worse. Really knocked me off my feet. But right now I am going to get my card posted while I have a bit of energy!



This weeks sponsor is My Favorite Things! I absolutely adore the Rainy Day Friends set that Kim Van Der Sanden sent to me! Here's my creation.

Broni is the super hostess this week and the colors she chose colors inspired by the Eskimo Kisses line from Basic Grey. I made my card using those BG papers then realized that I should have used red instead of magenta but it's close enough, right? I paper pieced her raincoat, pockets, boots and the frog. The rest is colored with Copics. The cardstock is Prism and Neenah solar crest white. I stamped the background of the image panel with swirls from the set in Versamagic Dew Drop Arctic Blue and then accented with Stardust Stickles. The buttons on her raincoat are swarovski crystals from Jolee.

Head on over to the Color Throwdown blog and join us for a chance to win a prize and have some fun!

Your card is adorable...LOVIN' that pink polka dot ribbon and your bows are always perfect.

Sorry you and DH haven't been feeling well. I've been dealing with an inner ear infection for over a week now. It's not a good time of the year to not feel well...there's things to do, ya know? ;) Hope you and DH feel better and soon!

Hey Kiddo! Hope you and hub are feeling better. Sounds like a nasty bout with a mean bug! Your card, as always, is gorgeous. I LOVE that sentiment and had never read it before. What a great thought that evokes. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent and I do hope you are better soon! Best, Curt

Well, she is a real sweetie, but of course dancing in the rain will make you sick! I hope you feel better soon, I am just getting over that crud and man what a whopper of a few days - had me laid out silly - I'm sure I'm not helping - but really I'll say an extra prayer for you and your hubby today!

Candy said...
