Sweeter than Sugar

Hello everyone - thank you for stopping by to visit my blog today - today as I was sitting and waiting for our hot water tank to be replaced I made this card. We have more damage than first anticipated our carpet has been damaged and we are finding that the drywall is also soaked and will probably need to be replaced on the one wall - not fun!! On to better things - my card was made with my new PB Betsy Bluebell stamp set - I think these little gals are just the cutest ever!! She is colored with copics and cut out and layered on designer paper (not sure where the paper is from as it is "old stuff"). I used a SU oval punch for under her feet. The sentiment is from an old SU set. I used one of my nestability dies for the dark green background and layered again on more DP. I added a button to the dress and added some copic spica orange pen to highlight the flowers and some glass pearls on each corner. I must say when I am not rushed I sure enjoy just sitting and coloring - I find it so very relaxing! I only had to work 3 hours today so my day was a bit less hectic and I really liked that. I hope you had a great Tuesday - tomorrow is already mid-week - I love long weekends - it makes the work week go by so much faster!! Bye for now!!

Your stamping friend
