Sweetness

Happy Day you all! The sun is shining so that is a wonderful thing for us here in Michigan- it gives us a little hope for spring in a few months, right? Or at least temperatures above zero! This little whiff of joy was sent to me and so I dug right in to work on her. I chose purple as I wanted something cheerful and I wanted to use my SU DP pack as well- it has been neglected for some time. I will preface this with- I do think that this card is somber and naked but I could not find a coordinating paper to go with this. I used SU Rose cardstock to matte the picture on. I colored her with my copics and I am happy with her but you know what I forgot and seem to keep forgetting is the white signo pen! Dang it! I added a little heart button that I found- I am really into charms and buttons now and so I am hoping to use a bunch that I have (cause remember that I am a hoarder!) LOL! Do you see my heart punch? Oh yeah- Heidi got a Martha Steward Valentine Lace punch but I tell ya- I had to work for that! I called so many stores daily and I think that the staff got to know me that when they came in they were glad my calls stopped! Hee hee........ but you know what? Who cares, I got me the punch!
Well I am sorry to make this short as I have a couple meetings this evening and a couple projects to work on later. Take care and check back- OH and thank you all for your wonderful comments.

Awww Heidi i don't think this is sombre at all, it is beautiful, you know we say elegant when a card has not too many embellishments or layers and it is stunning... as always... you lucky girl with that punch, i wish we could get them over here... Mark paid a fortune to get me a couple from ebay US, hopefully they'll start to some over soon.... Crafty Hugs Tina xx
