Feel Better!

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!

I had some stampy time (yay!) and played along with a few of the Love Fest challenges on Splitcoaststampers!  I LOVE SCS, and these challenges are SO fun!

My card today is for FOUR challenges!  The MFT Challenge, LOVEFEST2013G, The Simon Says Stamp Challenge, LOVEFEST2013E, the Sweet n' Sassy Challenge, LOVEFEST2013B, and the Unity Challenge, LOVEFEST2013H!  It's been awhile since I've done ONE challenge within days of it being posted, let alone FOUR!

My card today is for my girls to give to my husband Chris.  He hurt himself at work last week and as it turns out, he has a tear in the miniscus (his knee) and has to have surgery.  Totally stinks, and he is is immobile and in alot of pain.  The girls are hoping that this card will cheer him up a bit.

I've used Pure Innocence Bear Hugs and she was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copic Markers, and then I paper pieced her shirt with one of the same papers I've used on my card, Acorn Avenue from Crate Paper.  I cut out the panel, and layered it, with Oval STAX 1 Die-Namics and Oval STAX 2 Die-Namics.

As per the Sweet n' Sassy sketch, I added two panels, which I used for two sentiments from this set, "Feel Better" and "Squeeze".  They were both stamped with Black Licorice MFT Ink and cut with the First Place Award Ribbon Die-Namics.

The flower was cut with the Pretty Posies Die-Namics (shocking lol) and I added some Hemp Cord (more shocking) and topped off with a Paver Red Button.  

On the inside I stamped her again, this time in Jelly Bean Green MFT Ink, and stamped another sentiment from the set in Black Licorice MFT Ink.

Here are the Copic Markers I've used on my card:
