Mari Gold

Good evening!  So how was your day?!?  Probably better than mine... yup I'm like the groundhog... I keep repeating myself... Tonight I came back home shivering... even if it was 10 degrees celcius I started up my seat warmer in the car to try to warm myself up!  I took a hot shower and some advils.  After that I was ready to color a bit before I go to bed!

I'm pretty happy with how my card turned out actually!  Well to be honest I made 2... yup crazy right?!?  Must be the fever bringing extra mojo this time!  Well of course it could also be because Heather's digis are just soooooo adorable!!!  I did one that I can't show you yet... but the other I can ;)  So I will!  I did a card with the fabulous and so very sweet Mari Gold!  You can find her here.  And don't forget only Lacy Sunshine is the authorized store for Heather's images!  So if you find them elsewhere... well it's like buying stolen goods!  You wouldn't want that right?!?
For this card I used all paper from my scrap pile again!!!!  WOOOHOOO it's still huge however...lol  and it takes long to try to match the paper... but it's a really good feeling to use what I have.  I used my scallop and classic circle from Spellbinder.  I used some leave dies from Dee's dies.  I added some flowers from Wild Orchid (love those) and a little butterfly sticker from my stash.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored using my copics.  I added a sentiment from Create with TLC.
Isn't she a cutie?!?  Just looooove her!  Can you blame me for coloring her up?!?  Just HAD too!  I think unless I'm in the hospital I really need this...

I followed this sketch:

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Everybody-art-challenge - Sketch
  2. Can you digi it - Butterfly
  3. Joanna sheen challenge - Spring into spring ( I just think the little flower pot pretties are just the perfect spring images!)
  4. Clear it out challenge - Spring - use stashed flowers (well did just that ;) ) 
  5. Use it tuesday - Sticky situation (use a sticker - my butterfly)
So that's it!!!  Now I need to prepare a post for tomorrow morning and go to bed!  Thanks for the warm thoughts everyone!  I'm sure that my sinus infection will eventually go away... just a bit upset that the antibiotics are not working better and faster... :(

  2. Vicky, you are right...your card is adorable. The nurse in me is saying that you can't be on the right antibiotic sweetie and that this is going on too long. I know things work differently in Canada, but you need a different treatment.
