hey, CUPCAKE

I saw my surgeon this morning, and to my pleasant surprise, he will not be doing surgery on my foot tomorrow like I was anticipating. yippee! Having my foot elevated, along with new antibiotics, seems to be improving the infection. Another week of doing what I've been doing since Friday and all should be good ... at least it better be! It's been a long haul ... as my original surgery was nine weeks ago and I NEED to be at my job.

I was able to hand sketch this card, then assemble it within a very short time period last night. I get scolded at the mention of doing any hard core stamping! LOL! I just had to tackle Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #02 this week. I used the new Loop to Loop Rub-Ons and Hand Drawn Designer Paper from the Level Three Hostess Bundle, Hand Drawn.

I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this situation .... the new catalog states that the coordinating colors for the Hand Drawn Designer Paper are Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, and Basic Gray. I hold Old Olive up to this "happy birthday" paper and my eyes say it doesn't match! I see Certainly Celery! Does anyone else?

Hmmm....I don't have this paper, but from the looks of your card it DOES seem to be Certainly Celery. Glad to hear your foot is getting better on it's own, and my prayers will be with you that you will be all bette and back at work (if you REALLY want that - he he he ;) ) in no time!!!

Fantastic card for the sketch! I thought the same thing about matching up a green to the hand drawn designer paper, I used Kiwi Kiss but it was a toss up between that and Certainly Celery.
I'm so sorry to hear that your having such a hard time with your foot.
Take care.

Hey Nancy! I love this! I didn't get this when we had the chance but I so wish I had now! Glad to hear all is healing well! You'll be dancing in no time!

I love this hostess set, wish I had pre-ordered it. Great job with this, looks really good!

Renée said...

I haven't seen the bundle in person, so I couldn't help with colours although by the pic, I would have to say that celery would be a better colour match than olive!

Fabulous card, Nancy!!

Vicki said...

Love this card Nancy! I so should have gotten that bundle!!!

Jenn D said...

This is SO SWEET! I'm so bummed that I used up all of these Hey Cupcake rub-ons. They need to include an entire sheet of them. I see certainly celery too.

I'm glad to hear that your foot is getting better.

Karen Giron said...

This is delicious! I'm with you - I think it's Certainly Celery, not Old Olive :)

I'm happy to hear you won't be needing surgery again - rest up and get better soon!!

Corie said...

This is just FABULOUS -- I agree it is celery not olive

kathleenh said...

Deb M. said...

That is just the sweetest cupcake b'day card! Now I am wishing I would have picked that package in level 3.
I am so glad to hear you won't need surgery Nancy! Make sure you keep that foot up!

Danita said...

This card is just adorable Nancy. I have found that color problem a few times. Kind of frustrating too. I usually go with the color that my eyes see!!! Great job with this stamp bundle!!!
