Back on Your Feet.....FMS398





Back on Your Feet from Stampin' Up is as cute as can be and the perfect set for get well wishes.  This card is headed to the Big Guy's barber.  I don't know about you but I can't even begin to count how many people have cut my hair in the last fifty years.  But the Big Guy has only had one!  His barber is well into his eighties and has reduced hours but has no plans to retire. Unfortunately for the first time that we can remember he has closed his shop due to illness.  Word on the street though is that he will be up and clipping soon!



Cecile has a delightfully breezy sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Hope you join us!



The Paper Players has a CAS masculine theme this week.

Thanks, Linda, for quickly taking me right back to my childhood, to the cartoon about the big race between the turtle and the hare! This guy is going to make that barber feel young again, too! Laughter is the very best medicine, after all!
SO cahUTE!

I bet he loved this. I had to pop over here to read about it after seeing it on the FMS blog. So fun.

Such a brilliant interpretation of this fun sketch! I love this little guy. Great card, my friend!

What an adorable card, Linda! I love the background you created, and how you "popped" up this little fella. I'm sure this card brightened up the barber's day. How awesome that he is cutting hair well into his eighties! Thank you for playing in my CAS Masculine challenge over at The Paper Players!

Everything about your card is fabulous, Linda! I'm seriously ordering this set tomorrow because of your card. Thanks so much for joining us this week over at The Paper Players!

Love this Linda! Great for our PP challenge and a worthy winner and a fab take on the FMS sketch. The turtle shell has real texture and dimension, thanks to your expert colouring! I am not quit matching your hubby, but I have had my haircut by the same person for 27 years- she now counts as a personal friend and I get palpitations if she’s sick!!

Jen Timko said...

This is fun and sure to be appreciated. Just the idea of the same barber...what a gift of time and commitment to the community. Great take on the sketch.

I think this was my favorite in the bunch today. I adore that little turtle and the fun way you did the background. This card is PERFECTION!

Vicky Hayes said...

Oh this is super Linda! Love your background and the turtle is beautifully coloured. Sending get well wishes for your hubby's barber!
