Back to Normal

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

Things are back to normal today!  After yesterday's post, I simply had to get back to the cute, cheerful, whimsical, happy cards I love.  Which of course brings me back to a lot of my favorites, starting with the digi which is from Sassy Cheryl. I love this one & thought it would make a good "sitting here with my tea, missing you & feeling the winter blues" kind of card.  Even the poor cat is looking out the window waiting for spring to come again so he can get back outside & chase the birds!

I colored her with my Prismacolor brush markers and then paper pieced the chair. I wanted it to match the curtains.  The window is a Memory Box die (Grand Madison Window). The curtains are a new die  from Poppy Stamps called Lacy Curtains and both the bare branch (which I've had awhile) and the cat (which I got for Xmas) are from Impression Obsession dies.  I used an embossing folder from Embossalicious for the wallpaper & lightly sanded it.  I'm entering this in the following challenges:

 Sassy Cheryl - Challenge #199 Winter Blues
Just Us Girls- Challenge #223 Paper Piecing
Simon Says Stamp - Embossing Folders
Die Cuttin' Divas - Challenge #148 -Out with the Old, In with the New

I'm ready to strangle Mr. Blogger right now.  He has dumped me twice.  Cross your fingers!  Make that THREE times, he has dumped me!  Grrrrr!!!!!   I'm going to stop for the day & hope this will actually post now!

Have a great day!
