First Day of School

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

Good Morning!

For months now I've seen gorgeous cards being created with Mo's Digital's Pencil images everywhere. Her storybook type images are incredibly gorgeous and detailed and I knew they'd look great watercolored, so I broke down and used some of my funds from my card sales to buy a couple of her images. SO glad I did!

Isn't this image adorable?! I couldn't resist it! Love those rolling hills and the folds in Mama's apron! Can I just say how much I love how this image turned out? I can say that right?? :)

Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC52) this week was perfect for this image. Only, I rotated it because it just seemed to work better with this large image. Then I borrowed some more paper from Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection again - love that stuff! And you all know how much I love my layers, well it just so happens that today's A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge (#87) is lots of layers! I think there are 7 or 8 in this card....is that enough?? ;)

Ok, I'm off to clean the bathrooms this morning and do the laundry. Fun times. Not. ;)

Thanks so much for hanging out with me this morning!
