Water Baby

I am so excited I just have to share. Not only have I been able to walk without pain the past 2 weeks, but yesterday I was able to take large (actually normal) steps again. YEAH! Considering I was very close to loosing function of my body from the waist down and the Dr said their may be permanent damage to the spinal cord I could not be more happy. Maybe I will be able to bring the dogs for short walks now :o) Anyway...thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

I also wanted to say thank you to everyone who comments on my creations. I am trying to catch up on leaving comments on yours as well as the other ones that I follow. If I have not gotten to yours yet, rest assured that I am still reading them and will be leaving comments soon :o)

There are 2 blogs I can't seem to access, so if Jaspere and Best Web Hosting are reading this, I am so sorry I have not been able to leave you comments.

OK...on to my card, lol I use one of the the new images from the Water Baby set at Nicecrane Designs. Ignacio is always working on new images so it is well worth bookmarking his store and checking back often.

I decided to layer the baby and paper tole the body for a more dimensional look. It is kind of hard to see here, but the paper toling gives it a nice raised look and feel.

Isn't this seaweed great. It is actually used for designing eggs, but I thought it was so perfect for this image. The tiny shells are actually shells that I collected back in high school. My boyfriend (husband now) and I went to the beach for the day and I collected tons of these because they were cute, lol, and to remember out day together. They are the perfect size for this card. The tiny sand dollars I did get from the local craft store. They are real and so cute too.

I colored the image with my copics and found that I lost my beloved C1 marker! How could I have done that, they never leave my desk. I looked everywhere and am so sad as it is my most used marker. I hate to pay shipping for just one marker too! Wish we had a store locally that sold them.

The inside of the card matches the front. I am not sure who I am going to give this to (if I give it away {wink})

Thank you for stopping by today. My long haired doxie is going to the groomer to get shaved. Not naked, lol, but he will look like a short haired doxie. Much more comfortable for him the in summer. Other than that (well...and the dishes) I am planning to spend the rest of the day in my craft room (and hope my lost marker will suddenly appear, lol)
