Hope You're Better Soon!

I was asked weeks ago by a friend to make a get well card for her.  And then, I borrowed this great Lily of the Valley stamp from my friend Donna and let it just sit there for a while.  Finally, when hubby gave me some time on the weekend I was able to find my mojo and this card was born.

Now, I do not take all the credit for it.  I was inspired by Lindsey's Card, which she tells me started out as a Sketch Saturday card, but morphed into her own I guess it's a "six-degrees of separation" kind of card.  No matter how I got there, I just love it. 
I was finally able to use the My Mind's Eye papers that I purchased from The Scrapbooking Cottage back in the spring.  Thankfully, I stamped up a bunch of these images, so I'll be able to make a few cards for my stash....if I could just find the time.

And, most of you know I post these from is the first day back to school for my kids.  Rock Star is starting Senior Kindergarten and Munchkin is in 3rd Grade - both girls are in French Immersion, but this will be Rock Stars first day in the French program...I can't wait to hear what she has to say!  And Munchkin is so excited...she just kept repeating, "I can't believe I'm in 3rd grade!"  Sadly, I remember thinking the same thing not too long ago!

Stamps:  Lily of the Valley
Paper:  My Mind's Eye
Ink:  Copic Markers
Accessories:  Prima Flowers, Kaisercraft Pearls, SU Tag Punch, Pink Ribbon from Walmart

Fab card! Yours actually looks like the original Sketch Saturday design, pity the challenge has closed or you could have entered. Love the image and your papers. Another masterpiece!
