Good thoughts

Hola! Can you believe we are already almost through March? So far it looks like the old adage about March coming in like a lion and out like a lamb has held true yet again because yesterday was absolutely beautiful here. The sun was shining and the sky was clear and blue... I'm pretty sure that influenced the color scheme that I used on this card. ;) I inked up one of the new Pixies by Christy Croll because not only is she super cute but she has these great polka dots on her dress that I thought would mimic the ladybugs on the card perfectly. I also couldn't resist coloring up more of that fun curly hair, LOL! You may also notice that I used another doily. This was a trend that I resisted for quite a while because I just didn't need any more embellies... but then my local crafty store got some in and I totally caved. Now I can't get enough of them! Sigh... what can I say? When it comes to crafty goodies I am too weak to resist! Alrighty, tomorrow I'll be shining the spotlight on a fabulous new Sweet November Guest Gal which also means that April sneak peeks are soon to follow! So I hope to see y'all back here in 24! :) Supply list: cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It paper- My Mind's Eye (blue) stamps- Stamping Bella (The Pixies set), Hero Arts (sentiment) ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox dark brown October Afternoon Cherry Hill journaling cards Prima flower ribbon button Sticko epoxy ladybug stickers Little Yellow Bicycle leaf stick pin and doily Copic Spica glitter pen Copic markers: skin- E000, E00, E11, R00, R20 hair- C5, C7, C9, 100 clothes- R24, R27, R29, E18, YG00, YG01, YG03, C7, C9, 100, BG000, 0

Love the way you layered the doily with the newprint and what a cute stamp! I am also too weak to resist all the new craft bits that come out... sigh... as long as we enjoy them I suppose!

I've decided after reading this post, and the other comments, that this is what I love the most about cardmaking in blogland: we're all like-minded with our hoarding and must-having!! This is a really cute card, I think I've got some ladybirds, somewhere, and (now) I simply must have that image and some doilies, ...and I know it's alright 'coz you guys caved before me! TFS, Dee
