You're The Best!


Hi there! I had a little time this morning, so I decided to color and create something just for fun!

Here's a cutie from Tiddly Inks called Awww Thanks! I decided to start coloring her last night and so I did what I always do and colored the skin first. Then, when I woke up today I decide to take another peek in my craftroom and saw her just waiting to be colored. So, I sat down and got started, but I started with her pants. I never start with the pants!!! Oh well, no big deal right? Well, it is a big deal if you color her pants denim blue and then you don't have ANY blue dp that's even close to denim blue!!! So this is where it all got crazy!

I searched high and low for something to coordinate with her blue pants and I found this great BG banner paper in my stash. Yay for me! Ok...now I have tons of colors to choose from for the rest, right? Right! So, I color away and finally finish the card! DONE! I couldn't figure out what was 'wrong' with my card...you would probably say nothing if you saw it, but it wasn't what I wanted. Then I started pulling it apart...WHAT? "What was I doing," I kept thinking to myself! The original version had a ribbon banner die across the bottom and a different sentiment. After I took it apart except for the dp on the base I was looking at all my pieces...Ok, now what! Then, I was just staring at the card...at the banner paper...duh, I wanted to use a banner!

So, out came the MFT and Whimsy banner dies...combined them for the a small banner using a PTI sentiment, added some twine, wooden buttons and a big 'ole bow in her hair. That just left one more detail...a little bling on the flowers for the Tiddly Inks challenge and finally, she's DONE! She's perfect for the SCS Central theme too - friends and flowers...since this is a card for one of my dd's besties and it has flowers on it!

I hope you like this final version. It was one of those 'marathon' cards! Thanks for stopping by too!
