MelJen's Designs Challenge #148

Gooood morning!! So, it seems like forever since I posted. I have been moving. We are all moved in and pretty well settled. I was able to finish a card for MelJen's challenge! I'm hoping to get back into a groove and get some cards going!  This week at MelJen's we have Challenge #148 - Seeing Spots! (Polka Dots) Here is what I came up with:

I used a dry emboss dots by Darice, the red paper is a patterned and the white paper is cardstock. The ribbon is from my stash... must be 8 to 10 years old LOL The sentiment was made by me. I colored the most wonderful image, Cuddle Bug from MelJen's Designs, with Copic. That's it.. pretty simple card. I popped the blanket.. more like warped it and wrapped it.. I popped the center, but not the edges. I also popped the head over the blanket.

Red: R20, R22, R24, R27, R29, R39
Aqua: BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18
Yellow: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17
Black: C3, C5, C7, C9

Alright.. I'm off to work soon. Thank goodness it's Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful day! It's starting off a cold one this morning. 

I'll have to take photos of my area this weekend. We are pretty well settled in. It is really nice having a great husband and a great scrapping space. He has completely let me take over this room down here. He took the shelves we had in the garage and lined them up on the wall so I could put out all my stuff. He is fantastic! :) Our bedroom is right off of this room, so I wake up in the morning and log in to work and my crafting stuff is right here. I'm loving it! Anyway.. enough of that LOL I'll take photos and post them. I miss you all and hopefully I will be around much more again!!

Have a Happy, Blessed Thursday!!!
