Hello sunshine

Good morning!

I've got to take a quick Glee moment just to say how much I enjoyed last night's show. Yes, all of the Whitney songs were wonderful but it was more than that. The theme of counting down all of the 'lasts' during a senior year type of situation was really poignant and so bittersweet. Plus it seems like it has been ages since Kurt had a fab solo and his rendition of 'I have nothing' brought tears to my eyes. Sigh...

Yesterday I took the afternoon to make my 'start to finish' card making video series for April. I inked up this beautiful Happy Days Annabel from Crafty Sentiments Designs and I totally love her. She is a bit more intricate of an image so I ended up having to break the series up into four different videos this time. You can check any of them out here or on the Color Me Copic blog.
It's funny because the whole time that I was making this card I was just going along la-di-da without any real story or plan for her other than wanting to use the roses. Though once I got it finished and showed it to my sister, right away she said, "She looks like Belle from Beauty and the Beast." What?! You're crazy! But there she was... the brown hair, yellow dress and even a garden of magic roses. So yea, apparently I was subliminally channeling Belle onto Annabel, LOL!

Alrighty then. Thanks for stopping by and I hope that your day is full of sunshine too! :)

Hi Amy. I have to say that I love your card. She is so cute and such a sweetheart. I can't wait to go watch your video. Now, much like you Jerry and I both enjoyed last night so much. We were both teary eyed when Kurt sang. I can only imagine how we'll be next week. lol.. I was so upset for Blain. I just love the two of them together. Hope you had a great day. Hugs
