Adorable on so many levels!

Hi everyone! I hope you all had wonderful holiday celebrations and are now safe and sound snuggled in your dwellings...and if you are REALLY lucky, you'll be snuggling in new comfies that you got for xmas! My family get togethers have come to an end, it was a busy and fun few days, but I'm glad it is now settling down and I'll have time to unwind before I head back to the day job.

Today I watched almost the entire Season 1 of Dexter while I coloured my fingers to the bone. Now I'm watching one of my FAV movies of all time, The Sound of Music. It is right up there with The Thornbirds (really a TV mini series) and Gone with the Wind. Seriously, I think I could recite these movies I've seen them so many times!

Anyhoo...I was so 'stoked' (a teen phrase meaning totally excited!) over my framed batman scene I decided I needed to color another Green Bean Baby to make me happy! This is Miranda the teacup girl and when I was sorting thru my paper the other day I came across this random piece and the vines were a perfect match for this image. She was stamped on bella's bestest paper and coloured in copic markers with the yellow shading and grounding done in prismacolor pencils and gamsol. The adorable definition block was stamped with black stazon on vellum cardstock...the perfect soft suble touch!

Please don't ask what copic markers were used because if I don't list them, it means that I didn't track them...likely because the pile was so large I didn't have the time or energy to try to make sense of them! The crocheted flower is a GEM that was part of a package sent to me by fellow babe was crocheted by her mom and I really think she should start selling them on Etsy because you just can't find exquisite flowers like this anywhere else! Thanks Meahni's mom! They are beautiful!

For the next few weeks many of my cards will be dedicated and sent to some close friends, family, and/or co-workers who are going thru some pretty tough life hurdles and I'm hoping to bring smiles on their faces and a spark to their day!

Now for business...since I have removed the word verification for comments (and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your comments so please don't stop!) I have been getting a lot of spam comments. I manually delete them, but it takes more time than I have, so without having to turn the word verification back on (I know it's a pain!), I have decided to remove anonymous peeps from leaving comments. Hopefully this will save me some time, and if you comment anonymously, please accept my apologies and consider creating a google account. It is free and easy and will allow you to comment on any DO NOT have to be a blogger to have a google account! Thanks for your understanding.

Regards, and see ya soon!
