Beautiful things...

Hello again!

I had a busy day at work yesterday and once I got home I got sucked in to watching more Downton Abbey... love it! Luckily for me I already had this card made up for last week's review preview just waiting to be shared here on the ol' blog.

I'm so excited that the Li'l Lolitas have found a new home at All That Scraps and it has been fun seeing the past digis finally become rubber stamps. Even more exciting is that soon we will be getting brand spankin' new, never before seen Lolitas and Lads!
Anywho, I made this card especially for my pal Terry because she made a paper gown for winter CHA last year that was published in Somerset Magazine (you go girl!) and it looked a lot like Willow's flamenco gown. So I colored Willow up to look like she was wearing Terry's dress and even altered her a bit by coloring over the rose in her hair and adding some cherries instead to represent the hat of fruit that Terry's dress had with it. I hope that she likes the card when she gets it. :)

Okey dokey, time for me to scoot my boot and get ready for another day. Take care, stay warm and I'll see ya all manana!

Hello Amy, I love your Spanish Willow. She looks so pretty in her dress, and I love her card and all the happy colors that you have used on it. Truly makes me smile and very happy that my Christmas decor has been put away for another year. Now I am ready to get busy with the new year and your card just screams Ohla' to me. :O) I know I spelled that wrong, but you get the idea. lol... Have a great day. Hugs, Lisa
