KK Love is in the Air

The challenge this week over at Kraftin' Kimmie is "Love is in the Air".  I'll be honest here..I don't do Valentine's Day.  I don't send cards to anyone and don't celebrate it.  Yep that's me..alone and bitter lol.  Actually I am quite happy with just me and my animals.  Anyway, I decided to use Tara for this card.  The part you don't see is the inside which says "that I love you".  This is going along with the rest of my thank you cards because I figure it can be used as a thank you for someone the person loves right? I stamped her on Heavenly White Premium Ultrasmooth paper and colored her with Copics.  I used paper from Authentique for the background.  Thanks for looking.

MFTWSC110 - Violin Girl

For the sketch at My Favorite Things this week I used Pure Innocence Violin Girl.  I love this sketch.  I flipped it to better fit the image.  I used Teresa Collins Vintage Finds paper and colored this sweet girl with Copics.  For a change, I decided to try to use my photo box since my photos have been a little dark lately.  The hard part is keeping the cat out of it, but I know I need to work on my pictures so this is a start.  I have to say the Fishtail Flag Die-namics is my most used die.  Thanks for looking.

KK Challenge 164 - Texture

I thought since there was a power outage during the Super Bowl I'd upload a few cards.  I made this one for the challenge this week at Kraftin' Kimmie - Texture.  I recently bought some mesh ribbon and had an idea to use the ribbon as a net below Arielle.  Nothing ever comes out the way you see it in your head though does it lol.  I used some plain cardstock and colored Arielle with Copics, adding some stickles to her hair and bodysuit for a little sparkle.  You gotta sparkle in the circus.  Here is my card:

Thanks for looking and here's to hoping the 49ers get moving soon :)
