Who? Me?



I made this quick card for a good friend who has a birthday coming up (tomorrow - nothing like waiting until the last minute, eh?). I used to work for her back in my retail management days, and she has always been so much fun. I know she'll love this card, but the first thing she'll probably say is that she'll never stop coloring her hair and let it go grey like that. lol! :o)

This stamp is part of a set by Inkadinkado. The little rabbit I used to make this card is in the same set, and I picked it up at Michael's. The base of the card is actually a semi-opaque plastic card base that was among the goodies that my summer sister Lorie sent me in my final package. I'm fairly certain I've been forever banned from the ranks of any future sister swaps for a number of reasons that I won't mention here :o), but maybe she'll take pity on me and let me redeem myself next summer so I can play with the cool kids again. I also have to give a little shout out to Kimmie, who sent me the cute double flower embellishment awhile back. Thanks, girls!

The orange DP you see is by SU, and it's double sided, which is PERFECT for a clear card like this, because the inside looks as good as the outside! I love it! I'm also really happy with the way my coloring came out on this one. It seems like I'm hit or miss on the shading, and this one seemed to go well. Probably because they were small spaces. Small spaces are more copic friendly than large spaces.

I think I need a new winter blog banner. I'm not loving this one as much as I love my every day banner. I might need to work on that in my free time. BWA HA HA HA! Yeah, right. Because I spend sooo much time sitting around wondering what to do with myself! :)

Not much else to report. I'm off to work on the tree some more!

Enjoy your day...

I really like that plastic base card Sarah. It's cool that the paper shows through, but it's not clear like acetate.
Your coloring is really good. I love that image; too funny!

Great card Sarah! I love the layout! That sentiment is too cute! Your shading looks great! It does seem to be a lot easier in smaller areas. I think your banner looks great! Love your signature with the snowflake too!
