Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge #23




Happy Thursday Everyone and it's time for another Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge! This weeks challenge is to make a card according to the sketch layout on my card. Nothing too complicated and a very easy sketch to follow. Should you decide to participate with LOTV Thursday Challenge, please link your card to LOTV Thursday Challenge blog. Every week, a very nice prize is given to the winner and who knows...the winner could be YOU! So what are you waiting for????



I had planned to do something different for this weeks challenge, but I had a family emergency and was at the hospital all day and most of the evening. My mom fainted in the nursing home and they rushed her to the hospital. For some reason my mom has a fainting spell a couple times a year. We usually are in the hospital all day as a result, and after the doctors run every test imaginable, they never can find anything wrong with her and send her back to the nursing home! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that she is OK. She's up in age a bit and is in the third stage of Alzheimer's.

Sorry about rambling there, the words just came out in a rush! So... to make my LOTV deadline in a timely manner, I resorted to using my LOTV download image Easter Bunnies. I tell ya' if you are pressed for time and need a card like... right now...these download images from LOTV are the perfect remedy!

To give my image a bit of my own personal touch, I used my Copic Markers and gave the bunny a bit more depth and used my gray marker for shadowing. The card stock is SU's Certainly Celery and the design paper is SU's Rainbow Sherbet. To embellish my card, I added Dew Drops,liquid glass, extra fine glitter and flowers.

I already know that I'm going to be super busy again tomorrow. Hopefully my mom will be alright and if the hospital releases her tomorrow, I should be home sometime in the afternoon. I haven't forgotten anyone and once I rest up, I will be around to see your lovey cards!

Until then, take care and thank you so much for stopping by!

Hugs

I love your sweet little bunny card. The Copics look great on this image and is that a bit of sparkle I see, too? Very nice. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to share a card with us.

Take care now.

Adorable Easter card Risa & I luv the bling!

Hope your mom is OK, I know what it's like, I did alot of running around when I took care of my mom & then had to put her in a nursing home & got those calls saying she fell or something else & had to go rushing to the hospital to be with her. Take care of yourself too. I'll be thinking & praying for your mom & you.
