Thursday, January 20, 2011


Hi, hope you're having a good Thursday.  This was my first week back to work for two days a week, it went okay, but it is early in the tax season here, so things will get more hectic soon.

Today's card is another image from the digital collection called Adorables from Sugar Nellie.  I am so in love with these little girls.  They are so beautifully drawn and shadowed that they are a dream to color, and that's coming from a die-hard rubber stamper!!!!!!!

This is a ticket digi from Cutiepie Inspirations and it is an entire sheet and it was free!

The card is made from the sketch at Midnight Madness #87.  I haven't participated in the challenge for awhile and for no other reason than life gets in the way, but I have missed it.  I particularly love this sketch, and it fit so well with these little girl digi's.

Close of of Verity, by Sugar Nellie

Hearts - Spellbinder's Die
Both heart borders, Martha Stewart
Papers = DCWV - Sweet Stack
Lace - My sewing stash
Colored with Copics
Ribbon is from Michael's
Pearls - Kaiser
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Creatalicious Challenges - #18 Love is in the Air
Pile it On - #3 Anything Goes
Simply Create - #35 Use Punches
Copic Creations - Something new (Digi) and use Copics (no problem!)
Do You Stack Up -#3 Use Pink

Enjoy the rest of your Thursday. Thanks for stopping by.  Tomorrow is the mid-way card for the Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge, just a warning, put your colored glasses on kids before viewing!!!

Until later............

Hi Sue!
So great to see you again! Absolutely LOVE your photo of the Niagra falls. I don't want to think about how cold there must have been... brrrr. We have had a couple of cold months here in Norway, but luckily nothing like that.

Your card is very sweet. The girl is adorable and your colorings are amazing. Love the bow!

Thanks for joining in our challenge. I hope to see you again soon!
