Quiet moments

Hi Everyone, a nice restful card today, I made it for my Niece's husband as he is working in China and I thought he should enjoy the peaceful moments before my Niece and their daughter join him LOL. That's why I chose this sentiment, I am wicked!

Deedee's digis is sponsoring the challenge over at Suzy Bee's Bloomin' Challenge  "Add a Sentiment" The image is from the Deedee's Digi kit Lazy Days. For this card instead of using Deedee's ready coloured image I decided to colour it myself in PS (of course.) I'm not clever like you ladies who use such things as pencils or pens LOL. I paper pieced the hammock with the DP included in the kit, which I also used below the image. I used my new Tonic rectangle dies to cut the image and the blue card behind the image. Inspiration for the sketch is, with many thanks, from Cotnob Oh! yes the garden twine represents the hammock rope - I know I'm a bit of an eccentric!

I made the image bigger for the insert and added a verse found on a verse blog, but can't remember where - sorry.

So sweet Faith! What a great image and I love the sentiment to go with it! The twine was a fabulous addition to this outdoorsie theme! Love it! hugs :)

Great use of this fab set. Love your PS coloring on the digi, and that quiet blue background sets the stage for a serene nap in his paper pieced hammock. This is just too precious, & I'm loving the sentment too. Your nephew will love it too. Bet that twine adds quite a bit of texture & dimension IRL too. Clever design, delightful card. TFS

Such a fun card, Faith. Loving your little paper-pieced hammock. Looks like the wee bear is going to be there for quite a while!

I don't have a clue how to color in PS so my hat is off to you! I love this tongue in cheek card!

What a great image Faith and the twine adds a lovely finishing touch as does the paper pieced hammock.
