Feel Better/Challenge #43-Little Gem

Happy Thursday everyone!!! Sorry about the delay in this post. It turned out to be a crazy afternoon. The hubby called and needed to get lunch early because he had a meeting to attend at the same time he usually has lunch. Then I needed to run over to the base clinic to get a paper filled out. By that time I forgot that I hadn't finished this post and took the kids to the park. Oh...My...Goodness!!! Now, give me some slack here, we lived in Alaska for 5 years before this. But talk about HOT!!! Seriously, it is only March and my boys are running around in shorts and t-shirts. We got to play at the playground for a while before my youngest had to go potty and not the kind you can use a bush for hehehe.
Our plan was to go back out once we were done at home and play at the playground near our house. As soon as we got home and my boys were bright run from running around in the sun, my oldest told me that he is too hot and sweaty and wanted to stay inside for a while to cool off and watch some TV. I am okay with that for a little while.
So on to my card. I made this card for my Aunt who was in a vehicle accident earlier this week. She had an angel watching out for her that day. Instead of being laid up in the hospital she is home and they had to make her stay home from work. She luckily has no broken bones, just minor aches and pains.
This card I made also to qualify (I hope) for "A Spoon Full of Sugar" Challenge #43. All you need to do is use some gems in your project. I hope this is enough. I just love how it turned out.
Also, just to let you know. The apples look closer to the berry sorbet in real life, more so than in this picture. I do love how it turned out. I wasn't sure what image to use but this one popped at me. What is the old saying anyway, an apple a day will keep the doctor away...
I also wanted to comment on the image. Now I have been noticing a huge trend in using a white gel pen to add some highlighting to an image. I didn't mean to do this on this card but this is how it happened. So, I wanted to add some more glitter to the image and was looking for my clear glitter pen when I accidentally picked up my gel pen. That is when a light bulb went off in my head. Yep, so I went to town on the apples and barrel. Doesn't it look awesome? Maybe you can't tell real well in the picture. I don't know. I tell ya, I can't wait to get a photo editing program. It is going to be so much better than using Paint.
Alrighty I think I bugged you enough with my blabber today.

paper: PTI Berry Sorbet, pink blush, PP is $1 pack from Target (the white is the other side of the PP)
ink: Palette black and white, PTI berry sorbet
ribbon: PTI pink blush
image was colored with copic markers and the white is from my white gel pen.
the jewels are self-adhesive that I won on Lori's blog thanks to LimeLight and I used crystal stickles for around the scallop circle.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
