For You My Dear Friend ♥

Hiya!  As I'm writing this post, I have my little furbaby over my shoulder... In my post yesterday, I told you that he is just a baby (a four year old baby!).  I'm tellin' ya...he acts just like one.  He loves to cuddle and put his head on my shoulder!  It's WONDERFUL when it's cold : )  He's the best heater!

Well, I'm still gone on a business trip, but wanted to get this posted so you could see another fabulous image by Carmen Medlin for SCACD.  This is definitely one of my favorite stamps from the new Natural Beauty Collection.  Here's my take on Gathering Love:
This card has already gone to a good home...  one of my dear friends had a birthday on Saturday and I decided that she needed this beauty.  I chose the color palette she likes... which is not one that I normally use... but have decided that I needed to get out of the box more often!  Do you find that you reach for your favorite colors most often too?  It's so easy to do.  When I use colors or a style of paper that isn't my first choice, I actually am not sure if it looks good.  Isn't that funny?  Then... of course, I think, 'Maybe what I think is beautiful, someone else is gagging!' LOL!!!  Oh well.

I do think this card is pretty and turned out nice : )  She's stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Cryogen White and colored with copicsHair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Dress - Y17 Y15 Y13 Y11; Bow/Flower/Hearts - YR24 YR16 YR15 YR14 YR12 YR01 YR00; Grass/leaves - YG63 YG05 YG03 YG01.

Papers are printed from Nitwit.  I'm really enjoying using digi papers cuz you can print them over and over as many times as you need!  Roses are Prima and Cream Pearls from Viva Decor Paper Pen.  I've added Citrus Crush Ultra Fine Flower Soft over the grass area for the feeling of being in a meadow... Isn't she the sweetest?  Yes... just for you, my Dear Friend!!!

I'll be back in a few days with more projects... I'm hoping to have some serious coloring time while I'm gone!  I'm almost positive that I won't have access to a computer, so I'll miss you :(  Maybe my phone will be charged enough at the right time to be able to hop over to a few of your blogs!

See you soon, my lovely friends

May God bless you, keep you and comfort your soul~
