Some News....and a card share....

Hi all,

Before I start, would you pls. say a few prayers for me as we had a family emergency over this Thanksgiving weekend. My husband is ill and has been at the ER/Critical Care Unit at our local hospital since Saturday.

I just got back from visiting him this morning, we hope to have him home soon, I just don't know when at this time. I will keep you updated as much as I can in the days to come.

In the meantime, to keep my calmness and stay focused during this stressful time, I made this card while waiting to get updates from the hospital......

It is with a cute stamp by Jane, it's called Party the Penguin:

UR Cool

I love fun-shaped cards and I shaded the background of the globe with Tumbled Glass and the bottom portion of the globe with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. Added a few fun embellies, colored in the penguins, and finished.

Supplies:
Jane's Doodles - Party the Penguin.
Tim Holtz Inks.
Spellbinders Nestabilities.
Cuttlebug.
Neenah Solar White Cardstock.
Memento Black Ink.
Prima Pearls.
Cosmo Cricket button.
Diamond Glaze.
Copic Markers.
Versafine Onyx Black Ink.
Diecut label and flourish from sweet friends Marilyn and Leni.
