Say cheese!

Olo!

Well, it was a no go on the movie yesterday. By 9am it was snowing and it didn't let up until the evening. I'm still determined to travel to Middle Earth so Jac and I will try to make the trip today, weather permitting.

As for today's card, I was recently introduced to a new digital stamp shop called Alicia's Crafty Corner. As soon as I saw those big, beautiful eyes I knew that I wanted to use Photographer Alicia blown up and cropped in a 'big head' style. Printing her out this size also made it super fun to color her hair as well. 
And if this sweet face isn't enough incentive to check out these new digis then wait 'til you see the challenge that Alicia has going on right now. I'm entering this card into the open challenge which runs until January 7th and up for grabs is a Silhouette Portrait electronic cutting tool... talk about a WOW prize!

Alrighty, wish me luck that the snow stays away and I can make the trip to the movie safe and sound. I'm sure it will be worth the trouble but I'll admit there is a part of me that really wishes these movies came out earlier in the year when the weather is not an issue. ;)

Toodles!

This is my favorite card ever! Like Crafty Den said, words cannot describe how amazing your coloring is. I owe you an apology, because I did post your card on Facebook, I gave you the credit and a link to your blog, but I should have asked you first if I could do that, so sorry about it. I think it is such an amazing card I just more people to see it. I will remove it. Again sorry, I didn't want to cause any inconvenience at all.
