Hey There Everyone!!!  Crazy busy week so far!  Hubby is working tons of hours so I'm playing 'single Mom' this week and I don't know how all you 'single Moms' do it!  I've been going 100 mph since 6:30 a.m., killed myself at my spin class this evening to get rid of some stress, got my son to bed, and now I'm finally sitting down to say 'hi' to ya'll.  Hi!

I really needed a break from what I was working on earlier today and I had another LOTV image colored from the other day, so I decided to assemble a card with it.  Shocking huh?  Have image...make card!  I remembered seeing a sketch that I liked on the Wild Orchid Challenges blog, so that's the route I took.  I'm going to enter the card into some other challenges too and I'll give a list below.  I think I'm going a bit crazy on the 'challenges' thing, but I'm really enjoying it :-)


Wild Orchid Challenges - sketch
LOTV - new beginnings
Stamp Something - glitter
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Fab'n' Funky Challenges - anything goes

Here's my card...

This sweet image is Lili of the Valley's 'On the Garden Wall'.  Doesn't it make you remember the first boy you liked when you were a little girl?  As mentioned, the layout follows the Wild Orchid Challenges sketch and it was a ton of fun to work with.  The dp's are from a brand new 6x6 paper pad from BoBunny called 'Crush'.  I actually used a whole bunch of new things on this card:  Spellbinder's dies - Large Octagons and Classic Heart; the stamp itself was new; and a new MS punch for the black paper lace.  The roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The adorable love potion bottle is by Making Memories and I filled it with some colored water - I'm hoping it won't somehow ruin my card if it leaks!  Ahhh!  The gems are from my stash and I colored them with a Copic marker.  Finally, I added stardust Stickles for some 'bling'.

I colored this image with a combination of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger Distress Inks.  I can't find the little note where I marked the details so I don't have them for you - so sorry!

That's it for today.  I hope you're having a wonderful 2011 so far!  It's the beginning, so it promises everything.  Decide what you want and make it happen.  And try to have fun in the process :-)

This darling little card is so precious Angie.. love all the colors, pinks, red, black, white.. all so adorable together.. love your layout and love the papers... We love LOTV but are relunctant to get them from England as they are so expensive but may have to break down and get them... I am just getting so in love with them.. and of course your coloring proves that we should all have a few to color...
