Hello on this gloomy Tuesday afternoon! We had a tiny bit of sunshine yesterday and then the wind and rain started! Today it's just downright cold and cloudy! I am so ready for spring and summer and we haven't even had much winter yet!! I need the sun!!! Another pink card today, I just seem to gravitate toward that color, do any of you do that? I will probably need to push myself to choose a different color scheme next, but oh, Valentines is near and how can you possibly resist pinks, and reds and whites??? Not me! This one will be for my Mom, I am always trying to make a card with some meaning and since we have 6 kids in our family, the six hearts seemed to be a perfect choice for her!! I apologize for the dark pictures, but there is no sunlight available today! I made a criss-cross card and added a belly band that most of the embellishments are on! The Maggie is Ribbon Tilda from the Christmas Collection, I love that she can be used for so many different reasons!! The flowers are Prima and I colored with my prismacolor pencils, of course and the skin with the prismacolor markers. I swear someday I am going to work with copics!!!!! But for now, my pencils are my comfort zone! The paper is from MME, the Lost and Found collection... I LOVE this paper!!!! I have a quiet night coming up, Bill is going to the hunting store and dinner for a guys night out, so I have time to play with my stamps and pencils!! I have a lot of Saturated Canary images just begging to be colored... they are soooo beautiful... another obsession!!! Have a wonderful evening and week!!

Well, I guess it's about time I get back to posting on this poor, neglected blog!!! I was without internet off and on for almost three months!! Yikes!!! But everything is good now, so I'm back!! And I have a new project, a Valentine Card, most likely for my sweetie pie granddaughter! I used Prima paper, Sweet Fairy and of course, a darling Maggie! She's not the original one I colored, after I finished with it, I didn't like how high up she was sitting, so I used my Un-du to take her off and when it was time to reposition her, I noticed yellow streaks on her face!!! The un-do has discolored all the places I had colored with my prismacolor markers!! Oh my gosh, I couldn't believe it!! So after sitting in disbelief for about a half hour, I started looking through my stash of colored up Maggies and found this one!! A happy ending because she actually looks better on the card!!!! I have added a chipboard tag and corner that have been edged with chunky glitter!! Hope everyone had a fabulous holiday, ours was wonderful, very relaxing and fun!! Over way too soon though!!! I'm going to enter this in the magnolia-licious highlites challenge blog and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
I'll be posting more often!! Thanks for looking!!
