Today is Three Clover Thursday challenge day. I wasn't sure I'd be participating today because I was scheduled to have Carpal Tunnel surgery on Tuesday and I just didn't think I'd feel up to making a card. So you might (or might not) be wondering how a card appears here today then. Well you see my surgery was scheduled for 9:00 am and on Monday I got a call stating that I had to be "bumped" further back in the day to 1:00 pm. Since I didn't want to sit around all morning thinking about the surgery I decided to use my time to create a card for Kerry's fun challenge: It's A Zoo Around Here (Use Animals). I started out by using the Cupcake Friday sketch from Taylor's blog which really helped speed the creating process right along.
My all time favorite animal is a CAT and I just bet Kerry knew that I would have to use one if I participated in the challenge and she was right! The image I used is from The Greeting Farm (McSplendid Farm). Don't you just think that sweet little mouse and happy kitty are just adorable, I know I do. Anyway I colored the image with Prisma Color Pencils. The paper I used is from the Bloom and Grow pattern by My Mind's Eye.
Ribbons, Rick Rack and button are from Making Memories. Frosted Brads (Doodlebug Designs) small brads, (Queen and Co.)
So there you have it. I should be home recovering from my surgery by the time you view this card. I am not sure if I'll be able to stamp for a couple of weeks but if I can I'll sure give it my best try. Hope you have a wonderful week and don't forget to view the other members cards. You'll notice a new "blinkie" on my sidebar that will take you right to Kerry's Blog and you can see all the great art work from the other members there. Don't forget to visit their blogs and leave them some "lovin" via the comments buttons.
