Card no. 66 - You're Sweet

Well, well ... finally found a little bit of time for some much-needed crafting. I finished this card yesterday, but haven't had a chance to post it yet. We went to a bonsai store on Saturday afternoon (where my hubby could walk for HOURS - but after 3 hrs I just got fed up and said let's go, besides kids were going totally crazy). Yesterday we went to the Zoo and it was THE perfect day for it. The weather was wonderful, not too hot, not too cold - humidity just right - absolutely fabulous!

Anyways, I made this card for my friend Amanda, who is absolutely wonderful photographer and she did family pictures for us this past Monday - haven't seen them yet, but I am sure they are fabulous.

I used few challenges to get my inspiration going:
Friday Sketchers - Sketch no. 118
Just Magnolia - Week 71 (Anything goes)
Simon Says Stamp - Pearls and Lace

I messed up on coloring Tilda's face - Gosh! I have to get that down! But the overall "shabbiness" hides that a bit - hopefully :)

Hi Michaela: I have a suggestion for your faces. I did alot of youtube tutorials on using the copis for skin tones. I also started using chalks for the cheeks and loved the results. The youtube tutorials will tell you what copics to buy and will show you how to blend them. I learned so much.......remember, not to many months ago I stayed away people and faces because I just didn't know how to get the right combination.

so glad you are back.....we all missed you this summer but am glad you had a great time with your mom and your kids.
