Picking Up the Pieces Vol. 16 My Lifesaver

So my weekend oncall for work was pretty demanding which left me with very little time to craft...BOOOOO!  I was determined though because my OLW for the year is BALANCE and I pretty much worked my bum off and needed some crafting time to unwind.

Today's card is dedicated to my hubby that ALWAYS makes sure I don't have to worry about the kids, cooking or cleaning while I'm at work.  Being an oncall nurse is pretty demanding at times (I do love my job), and I know I wouldn't be the nurse I am without the hubby's support.  He is my LIFESAVER!

So here it is following this week's Freshly Made Sketch...

Lawn Fawn Float My Boat, Lawn Fawn Critters in the Snow, Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card, Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallops, Lawn Fawn Hello Sunshine paper pad, Hero Hues India Ink Black and Unicorn ink, Memento Lady Bug ink

So I paper pieced the cute little seal and then did a little "surgery" with the lifesaver to get it on the seal.  The waves were created using the stitched scallops left over pieces...and there ya have it!

Here's the sketch...

Mahalo for stopping by!
