Baby Kayleigh/Friday Sketchers challenge

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! I am so utterly confused on what day of the week it is anymore. Last Thursday my hubby had off so we could enroll my oldest in kindergarten. Let's just say I am SOOO not looking forward to August 17th.

Friday he had to take off because he had a doctors appointment that was "in town" so took most of the morning and into the afternoon just to accomplish. Monday he was gone all day because of the filming of the movie. Yesterday he had off because he was on call for the movie.

I think he got sick of us yesterday because today he decided to go into work and wait for a call from someone to do with the film. I am still trying to decide if I should take offense to it or not :)

Today I have a card I made using a digi-image. I mentioned it before on my blog. I was having a little issues crafting yesterday because of yet another headache (seriously the heat is really getting to me here). I figured what better way to get some ideas flowing then to find a sketch that someone else came up with. Where do you go to find a sketch? Well, lots of places but I went to Friday Sketchers and thought I might as well play along with a challenge while I am at it, right?

The image is called "A Fairy for Kayleigh" and I bought it from Paper Makeup Stamps. The proceeds of the purchase of this digi-image go to a family who has gone through a lot in almost a years time. Kayleigh was born about 3 months early and has had many surgeries. On the 11th of this month she lost her battle here on earth and is now running around and having fun with her Father in Heaven. It is a very sad story but now she doesn't have to suffer anymore. My heart goes out to her parents and hope that they can find peace in this terrible time.

This card seemed to come together so easily and I couldn't get a bad picture of it. I think it is lovely and it is fitting that things came together so smoothly.

Here are the deets:

stamps: digi-stamp from Paper Makeup Stamps "A Fairly for Kayleigh"

ink: palette brown, PTI lavender moon

paper: PTI vintage cream, chocolate remix PP, DCWV latte and brown, me & my big ideas

prima flowers, joann's brads, kaiser self-adhesive rhinestones, and the image was colored using copic markers.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
