Pretty as a Princess....

Good Morning Everyone, I hope that your Easter was perfect! Ours here was beautiful, just cold. Of course I wish that I could of enjoyed it more but I was laid up. I have had some minor back trouble for years, but it is only been worse the past year after I fell down the stairs. Yes, me half asleep coming downstairs to take the dog out in the middle of the night decided to go down the stairs on my rump instead of the traditional way on your feet! But that's neither here nor there ~ let's talk about cards :)

I was chatting with a friend the other day and she is a Chemo Angel. If you'd like more info on the subject click here. Anyway, she received a new patient and she is a little 5 year old girl. She told me that the little girl loves pink, princesses and fairys so I had to help a little. I made a couple of cards to send to her.

For this first card that I made I used the Pretty Princess set. This set has not had much use out of it since my DD was little so I just had to use it. The main card is a pale pink cs that I bought at a show years ago. I used the scor-pal to make the diamond shapes on the Pink Passion cs. I then stamped the images and colored them in with my pencils and SU! markers. I sponged Pretty in Pink ink around all the edges and layered them on to Pixie Pink cs. The border at the bottom of the page is from my SU! Accents & Elements Sweet Nothings tin. I added some stickles to the card and I was thru.

This is another card that I made using my SU! sets. The base card is Pixie Pink. I layered that with papers from my TAC Sands of Time collection that was sponged with Pink Passion ink and run over the scor-pal to create the background. I sponged some Creamy Caramel ink to "grunge" it up. I stamped the image from the Fairy Nice set, colored it with pencils, sponged Pink Passion ink and placed that right on the card.

I punched out a tab with my round tab punch and stamped part of the saying with Creamy Caramel ink and a tab from the Lillianna collection to stamp the rest of the saying. I then used my Crop-a-dile to add the eyelets and then placed that on the card. With some left over scraps I made a photo corner, attached a scrap of ribbon and glued that in the upper right corner.

I only hope that these cards bring some sort of joy to a sick little girls day.

I'm not sure how much I'm going to get done today ~ but I will try. Here's wishing you all a happy and healthy day. Remember to tell the one's you love how much they mean to you.

Hi Joani,

I'm sorry to hear about your back pain! I had a similar situation happen to me recently. . .I fell down the stairs . . .well I actually tripped, then slid down the stairs because of my house slippers. You can say I basically, slipper surfed down the stairs. House slippers can be dangerous when walking down the steps. Well, I hope you can find a way to treat your pain.

I love your 2 cards! Great use of those SU stamps! I love the pretty pink colors and your chemo angel will definitely love her cards!
