Thank You

This is my 2nd post today...please scroll down to view my Sweet Stampin' card.

This card is for my sister's boss and owner of VanWebber Upholstery.  Rick and my sister have worked together for so long he is like family.  When I mentioned how faded our patio furniture had become he generously offered to re-upholster it for me.  This card is to say THANKS!!  :)  :)  My sister's home page on her office computer is my blog (how sweet is that?!?!) and they both take a peek each day at my work.    She knew I had this image from Stampavie, Ruffles Get Well Soon and said she thought that it would make a perfect card for Rick.  Although it's a get well soon image (and I imagine Rick probably has a sore paw hand after all the work he's done for me) but more importantly it just scream re-upholster me!!!  LOL  If this were my chair I would have it have it re-upholstered for sure.  It's a little too floral and fru fru for my taste.   

The bottom cushion and slippers were popped up with foam tape for added dimension.   The DP is a new favorite of mine from My Mind's Eye (Lost & Found - Portobello Road).  The sentiment is from My Favorite Things (Thanks a Bunch).    I lost the daylight and couldn't get a good photo to show the layers.  

I loved this weeks awesome sketch from the The Sweet Stop.  Be sure to stop by to see the fabulous samples the other Sugar Babies have created with this sketch to inspire you with.

I like the depth you coloured into that cushion & those slippers are just brilliant. Either of the patterned papers would look good upholstering the chair wouldn't they?
It sounds as if you have a lovely family.

I just popped over from the Sweet Stop blog to tell you how cute I thought your card was. I love the digi. The puppy on the chair is adorable and the card is so appropriate for who you are giving it to.

I really like your blog too. I am a new follower. :)
