Do you need CPR?

Are you going into shock?
I TOLD you I wasn getting back into the swing of things!
One week from today, Lily is back in school and nap time is MY TIME again!
Here is a card I created for the 2S4U current challenge.  I always love the sketches Laura and Kazan come up with, fresh and lovely...This week's challenge is sponsored by AiFactory, I don't know much about it, but I'm heading right over after I finish this post!  I really excited about this card, I was able to use my NEW Copic markers from my PC Stampin' Royalty win for the first time...along with some of the others I picked up...How did I ever get by without them?  They are QUITE amazing!  It was very fun coloring this in, I think you'll see a lot more Copic work in future creations!
