So, so much...

Good morning, gooooood morning!

Oh what a difference a day makes. And despite the freshly fallen snow (yes, we got more of the white stuff), I'm thinkin' that today is going to be a good one. Maybe it's the whole leap year extra day thing... it's kind of a gift don'tcha think? :)

Well, I've got another simple card using up more of the border stickers that were also on my card from yesterday. Paper isn't the only thing that I'm trying to make a dent in my stash of currently. Speaking of which, I can check another un-inked stamp off of my list... yeah! I love this new TGF Miss Anya from the Garland set because of her hair and cute dress but I didn't really need her holding a garland so I did a bit of altering and wiped it and her arms away with a baby wipe before stamping. Then I redrew in the lines of her dress as well as new arms with a Copic multiliner 0.1 pen. I even added some capped sleeves to her dress too so that there would be a bit more color up there.
I also had fun playing around with a new hair color combo that I've fallen instantly in love with. It uses the new YR27 marker as the darkest tone in the combo and I think it turned out so golden and pretty. Don't be surprised if you see it used often around here. ;)

Alrighty friends, I hope you do something fun with this extra day!

We talked the whole night long..... Good mornin to Sorry just watch Singing in the rain this last weekend and still have the music on my brain. Your card is just adorable! Would you believe I don't have this set of Miss Anya yet. I love her with all of your edits. She looks really cute standing there. Love the papers and boarder stickers. I always forget that they work really well on a card. lol... We got a little bit of snow and I am so hoping it is gone by tonight. :O) Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa
