You would think that Mr. Mojo would be like most men...

...and avoid me when I'm sick. After all, I'm a bad patient. I whine. I'm cranky. I want you to leave me alone, but be close enough to get me anything I happen to yell for. Most men would run for the hills, but it seems that Mr. Mojo likes it, because not only did he show up yesterday, but he came over to my house today, too. Granted, I was feeling better today. Not 100%. I had to cancel my day out with my gram and aunt because I didn't feel quite well enough for excursions to another state (and didn't want to make them sick), but I was feeling a bit better. I colored a couple of images today. For the first time, I tried stamping on kraft paper and coloring it with copics. Now, THAT was an interesting endeavor. The copics come out very differently on kraft paper, as you'd imagine. It was a lot differently than I expected, though, but I guess the results aren't bad. Check it out:
Paper is kraft, bazzill (brown cardstock), and Webster's Pages. Flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts. The brown pleated ribbon came from Hobby Lobby. I added liquid pearls around the image, which was cut out with Spellbinders nestabilities. I added flowersoft below her little foot. Isn't she too cute? She's another Elisabeth Bell image from my collection. I'm pretty sure I got her at Sweet Pea Stamps. I have so many Elisabeth Bell images now that I sometimes forget which great store they came from! If you get the chance, swing by Lynette's store. She's got lots of great rubber stamps from awesome artists, and her customer service is fantastic.

This card is for the following challenges:
BnW challenge blog: warm earth colors
Charisma Card Challenges: birthday card
Simon Says Stamp challenge: spots or stripes
Sketch Saturday: week 190

As always, thanks for looking! And wish me luck; I hope to feel well enough tomorrow to get to Target so I can buy some stuff for my new soldier. I don't know if I told you, but the marine I adopted through Soldier's Angels is coming home (yay!!! I'm so excited for her!). So, I adopted another soldier and I need to send him a kick ass care package to introduce myself and remind him that his sacrifices and dedication are not forgotten.
