Sunday Sweetness

Ahhhhhhh... finally! A day to sit back, relax and just chill... sweeeeet...

The weather also seems to be cooperating with my "take it easy" attitude by being a bit grey and wet so there is nothing for me to do except stay inside and play. ;)

I've actually had this beautiful Marie Antoinette stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie's for quite some time but it took getting this new Sweetness paper pad for me to actually ink her up. I just thought that cool floral print was so Rococo looking and a perfect match for her. I replaced the kinda scary looking crow like bird that came with her for this cute little bird that came with one of my Pergamano Fairy sets... it had that sweet look that I was going for on this card. I also covered her whole dress with clear Spica glitter pen but no luck in getting it to show up in the pic... such is life. Oh and I used some more of Kiara's yummy crinkled ribbon... can't get enough of it! All in all I think this card shows that sometimes you just need to go all out girly and pretty and you can never have enough pink! LOL

Real quick before I take off... be sure to hop on over to the Color Me Copic blog if you haven't already. There is a brand new video tutorial from the fabulous Kelly Booth and it is all about how she gets her perfectly pretty make-up on her stamped girlies... LOVE it! :)

Smooches!

Oh Amy, this is just adorable! I love the paper, your coloring and how you have the little birdie ready to deliver her card to whomever she wants to sent it to. This is just so sweet! We are rainy today, so I intend to craft. I was a good girl yesterday and we got all of our cleaning and running around done. Yay! Have a great couple of days off, I am sure you deserve it. Hugs, Lisa
