Lovable Avie is So Sweet!!!

Happy day after Valentine's Day!!!  I say why not extend the holiday?  That goes for birthdays especially : D  I may have overdone it a bit though.  My whole family (hubby and two sons + puppy dog!) was together for dinner.  Yes, that is something that is rare these days.  I thoroughly enjoyed it!  I love my sons' sense of humor - they just make me laugh...

Anyway, I baked cookies for dessert.  How can I not test each batch to make sure they are presentable?  Oh well.  Back to my 'diet' tomorrow.  I'm hoping to be able to tell you soon that I've lost 20 pounds.  After tonight, that may be a little longer than I expected hee hee!

Well, Chelsea's done it again.  Oh yeah... not only does she come up with the best sketches, but today's card features one of her newest images, Lovable Avie!  I adore her!!!

This month at CLP Sketch Challenge the sponsor is Pretty Little Stamps (formerly known as Gurlee Girl Stamps).  Join us!  You could win 3 of the newest girlies in digi format.  How cool is that?  You have until the end of the month!

Here's what I came up with for CLP Sketch Challenge #44:

This is Lovable Avie...  Isn't she darling?  I just love her to pieces!

Avie is colored with my fave copic markers, of course : )  I've used the following colors:  Hair - E49 E59 E25 E53; Skin - E11 E00 E000; Pinks - RV34 RV32 RV11 RV10 RV000; Greens - YG17 YG05 YG03 YG01 YG00 w/R00 on top; Bunny/Shoes - E55 E53 E51 E50 w/R20 for inside ears; Background - BG000.

In this photo, the stickles haven't dried completely... it's still liquid-y and the sparkle hasn't shown much yet.  That's what I get for waiting until the last day!

This card is actually a hybrid project!  The image is layered on a piece of digi printed paper and cardstock.  The background layers were created in Photoshop Elements and printed as one layer.  I'm sorry I don't have the information to give credit for this paper : (  If you know, please advise so I can update!

The sentiment is from My Time Made Easy from the Well Preserved Stamp Set and the rest basically from my stash... well except for the two top corner 'pearls' which I created using my Opal Paper Pen.

Challenges Entered:
Digital Tuesday - Use Your Stash #147

Btw... Cheryl has won the Rose Paper Pen and has contacted me, so I may soon have to give away an Opal Paper Pen : D  If you know me, you know that my Paper Pens are one of my 'must haves!'

I hope that you are having a wonderful day after Valentine's Day ♥

See you soon!

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