Fresh Baked Pie

Hello Everyone!  If you've been following me on Facebook, then you know that we have begun construction on our new house.  We broke ground yesterday and now I need to start making the really big decisions.  This house has already been nearly 2 years in the making and it's so exciting to have finally begun this phase.  The build is expected to take about 10-11 months.  Here's hoping we stay on schedule!!!

If you follow the Little Darlings Inspiration Blog then you may have noticed that I completely missed my post on Sunday :-(  Sheri stepped up to the plate and covered my backside.  Thank you Sheri!!!  So I am taking Sheri's turn with my post today :-)

So....I have had this scene painted for nearly 2 weeks and finally found time today to put the card together.  I hadn't painted in sooooooo long and this was so difficult that it was almost torture at times.  I can't tell you how many times I nearly threw it away and started over again!  But, I powered on through and I'm pretty happy with the result.  If I were to start it again, I'm certain there are things that I would do differently.  But that's probably ALWAYS the case!  LOL!!!!

Fresh Baked Pie

Well, here she is!  She's got a 'Fresh Baked Pie' and she's ready for company!  Want some?  Mmmmmm....smells delish!  She is one of the lovely LDRS Cutie Pies!  I have paired her with the really great 'Wing Back Chair' and 'Table & Lamp', also from LDRS.  The combo creates such a warm and cozy 'at home' scene.  And, they were SO MUCH FUN TO WORK WITH!!!!!  When I had these designed, I wanted some background elements that would really create an in-home feeling with a little bit of whimsy.  I think they are perfect!

The papers are from BoBunny and, although they have a lot pink, they are very warm Autumn colors overall.  I think it's the brown and green that give it that feel.  The flowers are all from my stash.  Claudia gave me the green flowers, along with a couple of other colors, and I really LOVE them.  Thank you Claudia!!!  The ribbons are from SU and American Crafts.  I doodled the brown stitching around the scene.  The images....well, as mentioned, they are painted with DI's.  I also used a few Copics on the skin and hair.
Well, that's it from me today!  Thank you so very much for stopping by!!!
Hugs to you all :-)
