Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice!

Howdy!!!  I'm finally back with a card... I know, shocking, huh?  My bags are unpacked, I went to the gym AND even went to my eye doctor appointment today!  Woot Woot lol!  Actually, my eye doctor appointment really was a big deal.  I need new lenses and have wanted new frames for a zillion years!  I am soooooo done with the ones I have.  Maybe... just maybe, I'll post a photo of my new haircut and glasses when I get them.  I hadn't cut my hair in over a year and it was awful (although you didn't know it cuz I've been using an old profile pic hee hee).  We shall see...

Have you caught the PEEKER FEVER?  Elisabeth Bell has done it again with another fabulous release!  I showed you a sneak peek of Waiting For...Peeker - now I have New Beginnings Peeker, of course by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD :)

 My inspiration came from this fabulous paper by Prima - Madeline collection
  
Here's the close up where you can see my boo boo!  Well, you probably can see lots of boo-boo's, but the one I'm talking about is a creative mistake... I made the back of the carriage look kinda like faux suede.  OK, I'll admit it is a stretch hee hee!  The other option I had was to start all over again and that certainly was NOT going to happen!!!  Anywho, as usual, I've colored up this cutie with copics.
 
I am obsessed with crocheted flowers!!!  AND... I learned how to make them - yay!!!  What do you think?  Does it pass inspection?  I sure have fun making them :)  Oh... that flower bud got squished, but don't worry, I fixed it!  I've used a combo of Wild Orchid and Prima roses.

I've discovered a new love for beads too!  The ones on the pin are 'real' of course, but the ones on the lace and flower lace are from my Viva Decor Paper Pen in Opal.  Love Love Love my paper pens!!!

I forgot I had this Cuttlebug embossing folder!  Don't you love butterflies?  I've stickled this one :)  Susana doesn't carry this particular embossing folder, but you can find others that are fabulous Here.

Lori, Love this Peekers also. You did a wonerdul job on her. Great idea the way you put the charm on with the pin and added a few beards, that was cleaver. I have to remember that. I also have those charms. Wonderful paper for your background and the edging or ribbon you used is perfect. Stunning card.
Hugs...Pat
