Happy Mail and a new Sarah Kay Card!







Hello everyone, I'm sorry I was MIA a couple of days. My husband and I went away for the weekend and I really needed the break! We had a wonderful time but I'm glad to be home. (I think I was missing the kids a bit but don't tell them!)*smile*

Before we left for our trip, I received this awesome RAK plus some goodies in the mail from Barb! I love this card and the coloring is awesome. The peaches look so real!! Barb is super talented and her cards are beautiful!!! Thank you so much for the "happy mail" Barb...you really made my day!











I also managed to finish another Sarah Kay image fromLittle C's . Wow....I tell you...these stamps are the cutest and I love playing with them! I used the same sketch plan that was designed by Maria last week. (LCWH#1) The image is from Little C's and the sentiment is from SU. All card stock and DP are from Papertrey Ink. The inks are Adirodack Pitch Black and Copic Markers. I used my Spellbinders Nestabilities rectangle and sm. circle templates to mat image. Embellishments are flowers from Myra Road, Dew Drops and extra fine glitter.


Thank you for stopping by and have a great day:)

Wow! If someone with that good coloring skills is sending me stamped images, I would tell them to color them before they send to me.

But obviously you color well too, so you don't need to do that.

These Sara Kay images are so cool. Love your card, coloring and all the embellishments you used.
