Sebastian's Card and a Sunday Drive By

Today's card is for a brave little boy named Sebastian who I found out about through various blogs. You can read about Sebastian's situation here and you can read about the card drive here. I probably had ten cards already made that I could have send to Sebastian but I decided he deserved a card specifically created just for him. 

I wanted the card to be fun and cheerful so I started out by stamping an image from The Cat's Pajamas Clownin' Around set onto Copics X-Press It cardstock. I cut it out with Spellbinders Nestabilities using the out of the box technique for the balloon portion. I generally followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch (MOJO227). I used a couple of The Cat's Pajamas CutUps, the Big Ticket die and the Circus Border die for some added interested. The paper is all from the Echo Park A Boy's Life 6x6 pad.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp and CutUps, Echo Park dp, Doodlebug buttons, Spellbinders Nestabilities, Copic Markers
Copics: G40, G43, G46, Y21, Y23, Y35, BG0000, BG01, BG05, R11, R14, R17, YR04, C00

Just to be on the safe side, I am mailing my card to Sebastian's teacher rather than the hospital.

And a Sunday drive by:
  • I am really struggling with anxiety these days - thank goodness I have crafts to help calm me
  • the tax related pile is sitting on the kitchen table taunting me to do something with it. I've got it on ignore right now
  • apparently I am majorly overdue a pedicure - my three year old granddaughter noticed my toenails the other day and said "oh, they bwoke". They are not but apparently a small chip of polish on each toe make them look that way
  • winter has returned here after weeks of unseasonably warm weather
Have a good rest of the weekend.
