related themes adventure

I love the funnies (comic strips - we always just called them funnies).  I've loved them since I learned how to read.  We still subscribe to two print newspaper just so I can get the Sunday Funnies.  A lot of times I notice on Sundays that two or more strips will have related themes (not counting holiday themes), and that always amuses me.  This week there were matching themes in the challenges I read (actually, that happens a lot, too) - both Less is More and Addicted to CAS are looking for get well cards.  At Less is More, it's also one-layer week.  I don't usually love one-layer cards - I'll admit that sometimes I cut off the front and mount it on a different base later.  I didn't think I loved the color combination at Hand Stamped Sentiments this week, either.  CAS(E) this Sketch #45 just cried out for a stamp set I don't usually love, and those were the right colors for that stamp set, though.  Taken all together, I surprised myself by loving this card!
stamp set - Thoughts & Prayers; ink - Baked Brown Sugar; Stampin' Write markers - Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple; card stock - Naturals Vanilla

Oh, and one of my Wetlands cards for Technique Time Tuesday was chosen for the showcase - the Smackin' Acetate technique - WooHoo!  and Thank You!
Wow - two showcase cards in two weeks - I better watch out or my head will swell too big to go through doors :)
