Can't win 'em all!

I coloured this card up on the weekend...and I thought I looked a little i decided that I would 'decorate' it with my liquid applique. Well, I messed it up. Then I tried to cover it up and in my own personal opinion, I made a bigger mess. Thank goodness I photographed at this point because the next day I thought I'd try to puff the applique with my heat gun! I figured it might look like fluffy looked worse!

Oh well....can't win 'em all! (thank goodness I have my paper dolls to play with!)

Before I messed this up, I stamped Lulu's Birthday cake on bella's bestest paper and coloured it with copics. (ya...should have just stopped there!) I think I'm gonna have to tackle this one again soon because I love the image and Mom will be needing a lot of b'day cards soon.

Speaking of Mom's...don't forget our theme this week over at Blogabella is Mother's still have time to get your submission to Emily by tomorrow for a chance to win some of those golden bella bucks!

Finally, a little scrappy announcement. Did you know I was a scrapbooker before I started making cards? I still LOVE scrapbooking but sadly, I just don't have time to do it with the day job, the colouring, and now the paper dolls! LOL! But I still love to stalk scrapbooking blogs from time to time. Now I have one more to stalk because the uber talented Denabella (yes THE Dena who loving packs all our bella goodness) has started her own little is called a little scrap of time and I'll be visiting often.

'till next time! Linda.

I agree with Becky. Your coloring is sensational. Maybe you are just a smidgen hard on yourself.

I happen to love this card. Especially how you put texture on the cake. I wish my cards looked like this.

Ok - I know I'm late in seeing this but I agree with the peanut gallery --- this is gorgeous. I love the texture of the cake. In fact, I know I'll be giving it a try since I was lucky to have grabbed this at Scrapfest too. I fear that my colouring will not be as good as yours though but as you say practice, practice. I'll give it a try.
