A Good Day to Sleep!


Look who’s all curled up in the blankets!! :)  It’s Bella!!  Trying to take a warm nap in this 4 degree weather we’re having.  I think I want to jump in there with her!

I decided I had to post what I made today because I actually Used My Copic Markers!!!  Lol!!  I have a bunch and I haven’t used them *nearly* as much as I’d like to have.  Oh, and I used Chalk for the first time!!  I went nuts buying all the different color chalks I could find for that just-in-case situation… Well, I actually broke them out for this!  (Such a hoarder I am!)


This is a stamp by Crafty Secrets, my fav(!!) and paper by Anna Griffin (also my fav!!!).  The ribbon was from the $1 bin at Target and um I think the actual piece of ribbon on the spool was maybe as long as my forearm.  The paper is a super light cream and pink and the bottom one is that light cream with white flocking- not sure if you can see the flocked designs…  Oh- I also used my new Memento pearlescent ink- in Pink!  Or orchid or something they called it.  Well, it looked pink to me. :)

This card is for my friend, Angie, ‘s friend’s niece, Daisy.   Daisy was born with an incurable genetic disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa in 2007.  It is a miracle this little girl is still with us today because most babies born with this disease succumb during their first year of life.  Please visit Daisy’s blog to find out more about her and her family’s battle with this terrible disease.

After all of us at ArtHaven heard of Daisy’s amazing story, we decided we would like to send little gifts of cheer to her and her parents.  I’m not sure yet what other gift I’ll be sending…  of course, I am working on another (aren’t I getting tired of these yet?) birdhouse, and I’m thinking about possibly making this one for her.

And last, but definitely not least, one of my new friends from One World One Heart is having a giveaway (not OWOH-related) on their blog!!  


There are the cutest little mice and things here!!  Be sure to check them out if you’re a fellow whimsy lover!

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful evening :)
