Thinking of you

Hi Bloggers. Hope you are having a grand day. Here's a card for a friend who is having a bit of a rough patch lately. I hope this little Koala Bear will cheer her up. The stamp is from a Hang in There set, (Gina K), created by Theresa Momber I believe. I colored him with copics, cut out, popped up on the background. The kraft background was embossed with Sizzix Branches & leaves folder, and I used a small sponge dauber to shade the leaves. Use some Pebbles chalks for the branches, then sponged Distress Ink Vintage Photo around the edges. The blue is paper from Authentique Collection Gathering. The sentiment is also from the Hang In There set, diecut with S/Binders Labels Trio, stamped with Momento Northern Pine, edged with Vintage Photo. I took 2 pictures of the card, one using a white background, one using a black background. I think I like the black background best, but I'd appreciate your comments on this. I think I'll see if I can share this at Pixie's Snippets playground, (http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.com/2012/06/pixies-crafty-snippets-challenge-25.html) as the Koala was an image I had colored months ago, but thought it might cheer my friend. The kraft background was also a snippet, just handy on my desk, waiting for me to use it!

I love your sweet card! You are so thoughtful! Isn't it the best feeling to mail a card to someone you made special just for them?!

Super cute little fellow. He is enough to cheer anyone up. I'm painting a kola bear for my Mum (just gone into a home) in oils and nearly finished it to send to her. Hugs Mrs A.
