Oh, it's so lovely today. I opened my door and let the fresh air come in for the first time in AGES! I also had time today to head out and chop that tree down in my front yard that fell over in the big snowstorm. After that, I decided to head out to the beauty shop to get a much needed haircut. Well, she chopped a lot off and I now have a new doo. (and she did my eyebrows too) so I guess now, all I have to do is wash that gray right out of my hair and I'll really be ready for my Spring Break in a few weeks.
I also had some time this weekend to work on a card for a special friend on the magnolia-licious yahoo group. Oh yes, there is a group for all those addicted to Magnolia stamps! Hmmm..I wonder how much a trip to Sweden is? I'd love to visit the shop! Anyway, here's my card. The theme was "Green" (I guess to relate to spring and St. Pat's day) but boy, my GREEN turned into what now looks like a FALL card. Oh, well, I love these colors anyway.
OK, yes, I did add a bit of doodling to this creation. Those of you who really know me know that I love to doodle so this worked really well for this card. I added some "eyelet" as you can see. The pattern matches the three dots on Tilda's shirt. I also added some little doodle vines that mimic the vine/flower on her jeans. Decided not to stamp a sentiment but rather, wrote my own sentiment on a piece of torn paper from my notebook. I used the torn paper because there seemed to be too much white space and by adding that white paper, it just disappeared!
