A Wink Wink - Midnight Madness - Get Well ...

Good Wednesday Evening Everyone!!
What a fun day I am having!!!  To my surprise, DH came home at lunch time ... took me out to lunch and a movie!  I can't remember when we did this last!!!  Oh wait ... NEVER!!!

Anyways ... I had just finished a couple of cards when I heard him come through the door so even though I'm late with my post ... here is what I have to share with you today!!

It's time again for a Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge and as seems to be the case lately ... I'm LATE with my submittal!  Remember, over at Priscillastyles, you have a choice of sketches to use!!  There is a "detailed sketch" (which is my choice) and a "simplified sketch".

I have given you a little "snippet" of the new FUN image I chose to use for my card today!  This is a Wink Wink Ink digi image called "Pup and Boots" ... isn't he adorable and just perfect for those SPRINGTIME cards you have been waiting to create and send!  Melanie has several new digis you'll want to check out available in HER STORE.  Remember, you not only get a regular and a transparent image ... but you also get a PRECOLORED image like I've used here!!!
Here is a list of items used on this creation:
Stamps:  Stamping Sensations, Endless Creations, Wink Wink Ink digi
Papers:  Hot Off the Press designer paper, White cs, Mauve cs, Turquoise cs
Inks:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  SU grosgrain ribbons, Prima flowers, Darice brad

This should lift the spirits of anyone who might be under the weather right now!!!  I know it lifted my spirits just creating it!!   Don't forget about the cute "Rainy Day" FREEBIE digi Melanie has available for a limited time only!   You'll want to pop on over to the Wink Wink Ink website and be sure and check out all the fun posts to find out immediately when Melanie posts new images and to see some inspiration she shares!  I'm sure she'd love to hear from you!!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving such beautiful comments!  I read each & every one and do appreciate them all!!!

    I am so glad you had a mid-day date.. you need that every once in awhile.. I hope you are having a good week.. Huge hugs..
