Mid-week reboot


So after a couple of not-so-great days I'm thinking that I need to refresh and regroup so that this week isn't a total bust. That is my goal for the day... along with a small list of other things, but definitely the most important one. :)

Ok, so I had started coloring up miss Poppy here a couple weeks ago for a video request that I had and it was about time that I got her onto a card. I used more Basic Grey Picadilly papers on this one... LOVE them and I'm so glad that I'm finally putting them to use. They were released at a weird time, just before the holidays started rolling around so I was already heavy into Halloween and Christmas cards thus making it so I had to set them aside for a later date. They are so delicate and feminine, without relying on lots of pink and now I am finding them to be a perfectly pretty pick me up to the cold and grey weather that we are experiencing here too.

Well, I should really go get busy. Thanks so much for stopping by.
Later gators!
