Thankful for you...


Sheesh, this week seems to be flying by for some reason. I haven't had much time to stop and catch my breath but I'm hoping to rectify that with a couple of days off today and tomorrow. And considering we are expecting a new snow storm to blow through I think it will be a coupe of cozy days just spent here at home. Which sounds pretty darn good to me. :)

Alrighty, this card was just for the fun of inking up another as yet un-loved stamp. It's a Gorjuss Girl called Poppy Wood that I've actually had for quite some time but never quite got around to before now. At first the plan was to color her dress blue but it was not coming out at all so instead of scrappin' the whole thing I figured it would be easiest to just paper piece it instead. I added a bit of shading to it but that big wide dress was still proving hard to give good definition to. Finally I had to call it good enough and move on. Other than the dress giving me fits I am very happy with how her hair turned out at least. ;)

Well folks, I'm going to go see what I want to tackle first today... maybe, just maybe, I might get around to doing a video or two.

AWE your card is GORGEOUS!!!! Love the papers, lace and crochet flower too!!! I should of stayed home from work myself. I am on day 3 of being miserably sick! Brooke is home sick with a 102.3 fever. My dad actually offered to watch her so we wouldn't miss work. That was super nice of him. My mom still works and my dad is retired! Which reminds me....I never checked my last 2 lottery tickets. Maybe I too can retire! lol must go check wallet.
Hugs, Heidi & Brooke
