Friday Sketchers # 59 meets Madge

Morning all, we had a bit of a rough day yesterday, Sophie has got tonsilitis and some sort of viral infection that has bought her out in a nasty rash...she spent the whole day on the sofa but I'm pleased to say she seems much brighter this morning...hopefully her Anti B's will kick in soon and her tonsils will calm down...poor little lamb...not nice in this heat either :(

I did manage to get a card made yesterday which is for this weeks Friday Sketchers, I loved this sketch and it made the coming together of this card so easy. I've used another new digi stamp release from the Digi Stamp Boutique and this delightful little character is known as Madge and she is the perfect companion for Jim. I have coloured her in with promarkers and she has been mounted onto some Core'dinations cardstock. The design papers are by Pink Petticoat and I have used some ribbon, buttons and lace from my craft stash. The sentiment is a freebie stamp with the Docrafts magazine. TFL :)

Gorgeous Card! love the colours and the image hope you little Sophie gets over her tonsillitis, my Maria used to get it really bad, her tonsils were the biggest I've ever seen, three trips to hospital to stay in an oxygen-tent and her doctor still said no to having them out! She had to wait until she was 17 and she asked for a second opinion. The new doctor said she should've had them out years before. Hope you're having a good crafty week-end.
