Sassy Cheryl Challenge #149 - Thinking of You

It's very, very cold here in Central WI (11 degrees - feels like 7) - its one of those 'stay in where its warm' kinda days.  Since I don't have to work today, I have the option of doing that.  I have the slow cooker going so the house smells cozy and between household tasks I'm getting some cards done.  Who could ask for more :)

Best of all - I had the chance to make a card for the latest Sassy Cheryl Challenge.  Yippy!!   Sassy Cheryl posted her latest challenge today and I am all over it.  Okay, I confess.  I cheated a little.  One other cold day I colored up several Sassy Cheryl images.  The stack was sitting on my work table just waiting to be put on a card.  When I saw what the challenge is - Thinking of You!! - this image was sitting on the top of the stack.  No Brainer! that this would be the image I would use.  I love this adorable little boy - Healing Hands Boy. This has got to be one of my favorite Sassy Cheryl's - it just warms my heart!!  The perfect "thinking of you" image along with all the flu and yuck that has been going around.  Yet another good reason to stay home where its cozy.

Here's my card.  Isn't he a cutie?  The vertical sentiment is from my LSS - The Stamp Shoppe.  Heidi has tons of sentiments, many of them unique and many verticals.

Here's a close up............

and something I don't do often - I even dec'd out the inside of the card....

Since I still have time left to this chilly day, I'm going to make some valentines for Send a Smile 4 Kids.  
What a great way to brighten the day of a child who is in the hospital.  

Thanks much for stopping in
