For some reason they never wake easy. I poke, I prod, I move limbs. They are like bumps on a log. Every now and then, though, I throw open the curtains and state quite loudly "hello sunshine!". If I'm lucky, they'll slowly open one eye, then the other, and then they mutter...Mutter about it being too bright, but alas, they are awake and moving! Mission accomplished!
All Things Unity is having a Style Challenge. I grabbed the only Unity Set I had and went to work, trying to come up with a graphic, non cute-sy design that doesn't focus on the frog in the set. I first clear embossed the clouds on kraft paper and then colored the exposed areas with ink. I've never tried this technique before and quite like it. Suites my clean and graphic style. I'll be giving this to someone as a get well or thinking about you card...someday.
Ooh, and did you see the blog candy offered up by The Button Junkie, SherryAnn? Find out about it here, it's amazing.
