I wanted to pop in and share another card.
Wow, I'm doing pretty good on the crafting front
this week, aren't I?
Take a look at this one.
This card actually looks so much prettier in person.
For some reason my camera does not photograph
light colors well. But I think you get the jist of it.
The image is from Lili of the Valley.
Isn't it pure sweetness?
I love it.
It reminds me of my aunt Cheryl and I
(she's just two years older than me)
when we were growing up together.
In fact, I'm going to give it to her.
I've actually been working on coloring this image
for a couple of weeks. I've had it sitting on my desk,
and each morning while waiting to get into the bathroom
(which is right outside my office)
I've colored it a little bit more.
Let me tell you, sharing one tiny bathroom
with a grown man and three boys
teaches you a lot of hard lessons in patience.
Not to mention hygiene. Ick.
I paired it with this great text print from the
All About Girls mini stack from DCWV.
It says sweet things like "strike a pose",
"you are beautiful", "share your gifts",
and "have a lovely day."
Plus it has a built-in sentiment --
"set your heart on something beautiful"
above that great minty green scalloped border.
To make the image stand out more,
I mounted it first on a green gingham print
from the same stack, rounded all the corners
and popped it up with dimensionals.
Then I added a scrap of purple
Pure Color ribbon, tied in a bow, and
cut the ends into a V shape, which
seemed to fit the image.
Hope you like it!
Okay, gotta run!
Hell's Kitchen is starting and I've got
to get the kids in bed.
Have a great night!
