Favorite thoughts...


I think it is safe to say that I am finally over the worst of this cold... thank goodness! Yesterday wasn't great but I got a lot of rest and was coughing less and less as the day went on. At least I should be able to function at work for the next couple of days. :)

When I sat down to color yesterday I knew I wanted something quick, as my bed and an afternoon nap were calling me. And I realized that it has been ages since I inked up one of the stamps from my Sister Stamps collection. Lovely Minako hadn't made it onto a card yet so this seemed the perfect opportunity to rectify that situation. The papers were pulled from my scraps, which always feels great though I never seem to make a dent in them. Even though for some reason Minako's kimono looks kinda peachy in the photo she really is 'pretty in pink' in person. I enjoyed coloring her up so much that it has me hoping there are some new Sister Stamps coming out soon. Since we've already gotten mermaids you know I'm not so secretly hoping for some SS fairies... they would be totes adorbs! ;)

Ok, time for me to get this day started.

Glad you're feeling better. Oh what a gorgeous card Amy! Love the pretty in pink and the sentiment.
