Sunflower Angel



Hello Everyone, Smiley from millan.net

The sun is shining brightly today and I feel energetic! I've cleaned my house, Smiley from millan.net dinner is done and I feel as though I could take on the world! *lol* Now if only I felt this way everyday, I would be into something:)



I finished coloring another Ching- Chou Kuiks Fantasy Image (Sunflower Angel) last night and I love this image! While coloring her, I visioned a doll that was unhappy because she wasn't human, therefore the sad face. I even dabbed a super tiny amount of Liquid Glass on her cheeks, trying to create the illusion of tears. After I stamped my sentiment, I realized that due to the size of the word arrangement, the sentiment wasn't going to work for my card. I thought about Anne Taintor and copied her sentiment style.

I could go on and on but I'm going to bring my post to a close. Today my step-kids (the twins) are celebrating their birthday Smiley from millan.net and I want everything to be ready when they arrive from school. I have a few errands to run and in my case, the clock hands swing into speed dial mode....3:00 PM will be here before I know it. I have to get moving! Smiley from millan.net

card details.....
stamp and sentiment..Sweet Pea Stamps, c/s PTI and Bazzill, DP all SU, inks Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic Markers Embellishments Liquid Glass, Stickles and Prima's Say it in Pearls Pink

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by! Smiley from millan.net
