Hi Everyone!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  Ours was really nice.  My son did very well yesterday when testing and earned his black stripe belt in karate.  We're very proud of him.  Yay buddy!!!

I found some time in my craft room today and made another card to enter into the Whiff of Joy Challenges GDT search.  The theme is Pearls and Swirls.  This time I decided to work with Shopping Willow from the New City Girls Collection.  I like to think of this image as me on a good shopping day.  Yeah, right.  Here she is...

Shopping Willow

Isn't she pretty?  I'd like to come home with that many bags when I go shopping!  Anyway, the dp's were the inspiration.  They already have the 'Swirls' on them.  They're from the BG Sugar Rush collection and I just love em'!  The cs is SU, as usual.  I used my MS punch for the beautiful lattice work and added a soft bow with craft store ribbon.  I cut out the image with my Nestabilities and added some sunny yellow shading to the edge with my Distress Ink.  The green pearls in the corners are actually brads, but I cut the backs off of them because I had already secured the dp to the cs.  I added Stickles to Willow's necklace for a little bling bling, as well as to the tissue paper in the bags.

I watercolored Willow with Distress Inks, except for her skin, which I colored with Copic markers.

That's all I have for today.  I'll be taking my best girl, my 7 year old puppy dog, back to the orthopedic surgeon tomorrow so I won't have any time for crafting.  Hopefully on Tuesday.  I hope you all find some time to color!

Ciao for now,

Angie, you do come home with that many bags when you shop -- you just do it online so they arrive at the door. Great card...makes me want to go shopping.
