Just Sittin' Here Thinking of You

I'm thinking about my sweet little Schmitzy tonight.  His poor little body is attacking itself.  Back to the vet tomorrow...

So in order to lift my spirits, my DH sent me to "my room" to create.  It was a smart move on his part, as it has made me feel a little better and the creative slump I have been in now has a dent in it.

I used a Cheery Lynn die.  First I cut it out and had so many little pieces left that it dawned on me that someone suggested using wax paper between.  I tried that and it is amazing!  I had to poke about 3 pieces out!!!  The sketch comes from The House that Stamps Built.  I stamped the Memory Box image in the center of the die cut using Memento Rich Cocoa.  I debated about coloring the birds, played with an image on scrap, but decided I like the clean image best.  All cs came from my scrap bin.  I used an A Muse sentiment punched out with an SU! punch.  The chocolate ribbon is also from SU!  Rhinestones also come from stash.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Creative Moments - monochrome
The Ribbon Carousel- Winter Spirit

Thanks for stopping by and please keep Schmitzy in your prayers.
