Hey all! Oh, what a week! Ainsley had strep (well, we think strep) and has been home from school since Monday morning when the nurse called. The worst part was the fever — Tuesday she was 105°, which was freaking me out completely. Fortunately, she’s been fever free since yesterday, but I kept her home today to get some extra rest and not get bombarded with more germs at school. Fun stuff, I tell ya!
This morning while Carter was at school I was able to get a card done for this week’s Paper Pretties challenge — really ahead of myself this week. HA! This week’s challenge is a sketch from Frances.
I pulled out Gliding By Sophia, who was one of my first Sophias, and Cosmo Cricket Mitten Weather. I decided to go with a purple card, which led me to paper piece her dress. The reason? I don’t have a lot of purple Copics and what I have never seems to match up to the papers I have. Anyway, I paper pieced her dress and the inside of her cape with the lighter purple polka dot paper from Mitten Weather. After coloring, I added in lots of sparkle with Star Dust Stickles on her ear muffs, muff and the ice.
