Continuing my Summer Theme.....

Cort and I were home today sick. I made an appt. with the doctor for tomorrow morning. Since Cort is in a wheelchair most of the time, she has a tendency to get bronchitis that has gone into pneumonia. I want to nip it in the bud before it gets to that point.

Since the weather has finally gotten better around here........in the 80's tomorrow! I decided to post another summery card. This is a High Hopes image that I've had for awhile. I love the High Hopes stamps.....they are all so cute! I colored the images in with my Copics. I cut the girl out and put her on a pop dot for a bit of dimension. I happened to have a sun brad and decided to use that too! I used my Nesties, a bit of twine, and a jewelry tag for minimal embellishing. I wanted the focus to be on my image.

Off to get a good night's rest and hope I feel better tomorrow. Have a fantastic weekend!!!!
