It's Candy and Peeker Time!

Good Monday Morning Sweeties!  Did you have a good weekend?  Half of mine was busy busy busy and the other half was ...nap time!  I did something with my sister on Saturday that was very empowering - yay!!!  I used to own this mega treadmill that took up most of my kitchen lol!  It felt so good to get it out of my house so that I could replace it with my craft space.  Where did it go?  To my sister's house, of course hee hee!  Nope, that wasn't the empowering part... She's had the treadmill taking up space in the room she uses as her office, but now she's ready to turn that room into a dining room.  It didn't seem very practical to keep the treadmill in there, but no one knew how to disassemble it.  I mean this thing is HUGE with a monitor to watch TV and even has a fan!  So, it wasn't something we could just fold up and roll out with ease...  After finally finding the model and serial number so we could download the proper manual, we boldly ventured out into the unknown.  With hex key and phillips screwdriver in hand, off came one bolt after another... one piece after another.  It's amazing what you can do with the instructions lol!  So we get the top and side portions off and put the pieces in her garage.  Now came the really really hard part.  I don't know how much this thing weighs, but it's gotta be a lot more than me!  You should have seen the two of us struggling to get it out her front door.  It wasn't pretty hee hee.  I'm tellin ya that working out certainly helped get this job done!!!  Now we're both feeling pretty puffed up cuz we didn't have to ask anyone for help :)  Yay!!!  Victory!!!  So, if you need someone to help you with an intimidating project, just give us a call LOL!

...and now... It's PEEKER time!  For the past few days, I've been pointing you to one of my sweet DT sister's blogs so you could take a peek at her PEEKER.  Now, I've got my own PEEKER for you to peek at!  For the first time ever, feast your eyes on Waiting For...Peeker.

This lil' cutie is from The Peekers by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  The entire collection is beyond adorable!  Just wait til you see the whole kit n caboodle!  You'll want em all : )

 I've colored up this Oh so sweet image with copics:  Dress - BG05 BG02 BG01 BG000 BG0000; Bows - BV04 BV02 BV01 BV00 BV000; Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Curtain/Window Pane - E53 E50; Scenery - C7 C5 C3 C2, G28 G24 G21 G12 G20, E25 BV04.  Can you see the curtain tieback?  I used Gold Ultra Fine Glitter Paint by Glamour Dust!  The camera didn't pick up the bling... :(

My inspiration for this card came from The Outlawz Color Challenge which is Light Blue, Purple and Creamy White.  Oh how I love these colors together!!!  I've used the sketch from Wild Orchid Challenge (which I LOVE!).  Since I was working on a Wild Orchid Challenge, I've used Wild Orchid flowers, but you can find similar flowers in the US Here.  Those quick n easy cream pearls were made with my FAVE Viva Decor Paper Pen.  I will never stop saying how much I LOVE these paper pens lol!  Did ya catch the rhinestones in the lace?  You can find those Here.  The sentiment is computer generated.
