Sick and a Kiss

This cutie pop (I love that phrase, Suzanne!) has been trying for three days to get here to you. She's been smudged, not try and I think just sick! His name is Sick Shy Bear, and you can find him at Susana's Custom Art and Card Design. I was trying to find just the right paper for him to make it look like he was in his bedroom sick and getting over the flu. It's been a way of life around our house lately and well, we're SICK of it!

I colored him with copics and used some Shimmerz on him and Crystal Laquer to show all the liquid he's been drinking. Oh, and please don't forget the tissue! This tissue box is from the Lockhart Stamp Company and I added a personal touch to the box (Puff's by the way!). And I just received my Metallic Dew Drops from Susana and oh, are the gorgeous!

Well, Chloe isn't worrying about any flu going around! A Kiss for Chloe is one of my favorite Sarah Kay stamps that Summer carries at Roses on Paper. This stamp reminds me of that first kiss that comes from your first real love. Gosh, they're just adorable!

I stamped these sweeties on watercolor paper and used Distressed Inks on them. The paper is from a gorgeous stack from Prima papers and the flowers are also from Prima. I highlighted them with some stickles and used some pearls on these sweeties along with some spacers to give them a bit of a rustic look. I love the sheer gold ribbon and think it's just beautiful.

Thanks so much for bearing with me while I've been fighting the flu for so long. I promise I'll try and make the wait up to you.
