Created with Love Challenge

Hello there.  Hope all of you are having a great day.  First off, I have some great news.  I had my first x-ray since my surgery and met with the surgeon today.  Everything is going perfect.  The doctor said my neck is healing perfectly.  The bone is growing around the screws and cage.  The natural curve of my neck is perfect.  Whatever I am doing, he said to keep doing because it's working.  YIPPEE!!  I was doing the happy dance on the way out of the office.   Starting February 17th I can start taking off the collar for one hour a day for two days.  Then I move to two hours a day for two days, then three hours for two days, etc.  I have to go back around the 17th of March for another x-ray.  So far so good.  Can  you say Praise the Lord??  I sure can.

So, onto today's card.  Created with Love #24 challenge is Critter Birthday.  I chose this adorable digi stamp that I received from a friend of mine and unfortunately I don't know who designed it.  I colored the image with my colored pencils and OMS.  I added some glitter pen on the roses and on the little mouse's bow.  I inked the edges of the image with Memento London Fog and matted it on Colorbok Pink and then Stampin' Up Gray. I tilted it just a little wonky for interest. The DP is from my stash and the card base is made from SU Gray.  The card is 5x5.  I printed out the sentiment from the computer and used the same matting sequence.  I used pop dots on the sentiment.  I added  a triple layer paper flower with two mint green leaf sprays and a mint brad to finish it off.

I sure hope you all enjoyed today's card.  Stop on over to the Created with Love blog and check out some of the beautiful work as well as the fun challenges.  God bless ya'll and have a wonderful weekend.
