The Wee Free Wee

Happy Sunday all, hope you are having a good day.  I've had a very lazy one, I admit it.  I sat down with Vince earlier with a cuppa and lo and behold it was suddenly two hours later!!  I could never understand how my mum could just fall asleep in a chair, and now I'm doing it too.  Mind you, it was a lovely nap.

Only made one card today.  It was a difficult one to do as my cousin has been admitted to hospital after suffering a severe mental breakdown.  It came as quite a shock I can tell you.  I wanted to send her a card that says I am thinking about her but not one that would alarm her into thinking bad thoughts.  So I've tried to keep it bright and happy and this free Wee stamp seemed just the right one to use.


Three challenges for this little darlin'

I've used the same layout that I did for the last time I used this Wee lass but as Sylvia Zet very kindly left a comment saying she liked it I thought, hey, if it ain't broke don't fix it!


Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Images:  Girl and Mouse - free Wee stamps with magazine
(the best free stamps set I've ever had)
Medium: Distress Inks (ReInkers)
Sentiment: Hero Arts
Papers: Dovecraft and Papermania

I know I am way behind in commenting again but we are still suffering with intermittent internet connection so I am trying to comment when I can but it is becoming a bit of an issue!!  Also I have been spending quite a bit of time on an exciting new project, but more of that nearer the time.

Hugs, Sxx

It's a beautiful card and just right for your cousin I think.

I know what you mean about falling asleep in the chair, must happen to us all eventually (happens to me most days lol).

I think it's a great card for a very difficult situation.
As for the nap, surely you've come across the theory of cat gravity before... http://www.robinwood.com/Catalog/Prints/PrintPages/CatGravPoster.html scroll down the page and text is typed out.
