My dear twin brother had some minor surgery on his foot on Thursday and I thought I'd better get my butt into gear and make him a little get well card. He's on bed rest for the first 7 days and will be off his foot for 3-4 weeks. He and his partner rearranged their lounge room so he can blob out on the couch playing x-box and/or watching the telly whilst looking out their big windows at the ocean, plus I'm pretty sure that PJ's will be his go-to fashion for much of these few weeks. Lucky duck!! lol ;)
Anywho, I used this weeks Farm Fresh Friday sketch to help me plan my card and pulled it together from there. I ummed and aahed over which image to use - the Nurse Anya or a My Guy Ian, or even the cute little dogs on the couch in the Home Sweet Home set.....before finally deciding this cute little Max fit the bill perfectly. I paper pieced his outfit so that it more resembled pj's and pulled out my Copics. I'm not all that pleased with my colouring on this card, but I'm not gonna redo it, so it will have to do. Dan won't be critiquing it anyway. This also fits with this week's challenges at Anya Ink at Anyone for Anya, which is anything goes.
Its Easter Sunday over here now and our daylight savings has finished overnight. I'm usually doubleminded about this end of DS - I love the extra hour of sleep, but hate that its dark so much earlier in the afternoon/evening. Definitely won't be leaving work with lingering light left in the sky most evenings now. Oh welll....
Happy Resurrection Sunday to all.
