Running Nose??

Happy Wednesday!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week - it's cold and snow-y here in central Indiana and after trudging around all morning in the snow getting kids to school - it was so nice to sit in my warm studio and do some stamping - LOL! Which brings me to the card I have to share today...so last week I was in Archiver's - cruising around - drooling over all the new stamps when I spotted some familiar stamps out of the corner of my eye - and there - right on the front counter - with a big sign that said "New at Archiver's" was stamps by Our Craft Lounge!! OMG - I totally geeked out - I have been wanting some of these stamps ever since they were released and it's just so cool to know where they came from, kwim? (Our Craft Lounge is co-owned by Cami Turnbow, Marianne Walker and Joy Kennedy.) Soooooooooooo....I snagged a couple of sets and am so excited to finally get a chance to ink them up today and OMG - I am in love with this "Running Sick" set - the images and sentiments are SO funny and just right up my alley!! I made this card for today's sketch challenge - you can view the sketch here - I had a blast with this one. I flipped the sketch and made it longer to fit my image. For my image - I used the tissue box and nose from the OCL set - I did have to do some masking to get the tissue boxes chasing the poor nose. The entire image was colored in with Copics. The paper is from the My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy glitter stack. The stars are die cuts cut with my Cricut and the star brads are from JoAnn's. I accented the bottom star with some ribbon and a button. Thanks so much for stopping by - and the next time you are in Archiver's - check out the OCL stamps - they are AWESOME!!!
