Hello Dear Readers,
I'm baaaaack!!!! I have been slacking on my blogging but not my card making. I've just been so busy with things at home that I haven't been able to set aside time to blog! Where to start - OK, we had to go car shopping. I finally gave up and left the choice to my sweet husband. In early December, a woman wasn't paying attention, ran a light and slammed right into our car totaling it. The Lord was with my husband as he didn't have a scratch! He was just shaken up as anyone would be. We were so blessed. Fortunately, we also have a Navigator SUV and were not without a car. Hubby wanted to put closure to the issue so we got a new car last week. I was sick for a week. Ever since I had pneumonia a little over a year ago, it seems that there is a little respiratory issue that keeps coming back like an unwanted guest! Breathing becomes hard, and the coughing is constant. I finally got cough medicine with codeine in it to suppress the cough. I keep Delsym cough drops at hand. That brand works very well for me. But, I still have managed to make some pretty cards which you will be seeing in the near future! It felt good to sit and create.
Today's card features Ribbon Dancer Tilda from the Moscow Collection. She's so cute! I got my stamp at Magnolia-licious. Diana is currently out of this particular stamp, but if you contact her, she'll let you know when they will be back in stock. I made it a very girly girl type card. The front sparkles both with the Frantage and Stickles I've added to her outfit. She has been watercolored and accentuated with both Derwent Inktense and Prismacolor Watercolor Pencils. Here she is:
There is a Doo-hickey heart tag in the upper right as well as a Doo-hickey tag tucked behind the raised image at center left. The inside panels are completely finished as well. I used Maja papers for this card. Here are the inside panels:
I hope you like my little girly girl creation. For some reason, I am really into pink!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I really love reading your comments and hope that you will share your thoughts with me. XOXO
I'll be back on Tuesday with my design for the new Magnolia-licious Challenge! Hope you will come back soon!
