Uplifting:


Good morning.  The good news:   it looks like Pixie is out of her clustered seizures for now.  The bad new:  she despises her new medications.  It's a wrestling match every day especially with my bad wrist and her wiggly little determination, but in the end I come out the champion ;)

Other good news:  it's Friday!!!

I originally was going to make a baby card, but while I was colouring Barry, I kept thinking how "uplifting" he is, so I added lots of red and a fun little saying:
Card Ingredients:
Stamps: StampFairy Barry Balloons
Inks:  Prismacolor pencils, Craftsmart Teal
Papers/Cardstock: MME Summer Splash, MME Gnome Sweet Gnome/American Crafts and Recollections cardstock
Bits/Bobs: Recollections gems, Gelly Roll white pen
Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, makeup sponge (for blending sky), CC Designs Grass cutter


I created this card for the following challenges:  MilkCoffee - colouring, Word Art Wednesday - anything uplifting, Little Red Wagon - paper piecing, Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch,

Have a super wonderful weekend - cheers!

P.S I'm so glad that your dog Pixie is on the mend it's horrible when your we animal is sick and they can't talk to you like a child and tell you how they feel and what is worry.
