Tough-ie


Ok, this was just a really hard card for me to do!!!! The image, from Designed2Delight for their progressive challenge, is just lovely.......however, I COULD NOT come up with whatever I thought I wanted to do!! BUT, it's done......I will say this.....I'm kinda looking at it as a piece of art. They say that when you look at art you should stand back from it and not view it close up so you can get the full effect! Well, if you "stand back" from this, it really is nice!

I used some Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, and Soft Suede paper. The sentiment is from a CTMH set. I colored the image with Copics and crayons! Yes, crayons...........

Oh, on a side note here - if you have time, go check out this site: Sincerely Babette! She makes the cutest little projects and today she's got a darling purse with a few accessories! Very cute, Babette.

Thanks for stopping by..............

Love this precious wreath of autumn leaves!! What a great design, Lynn!

We didn't get enough rain to wash us away yesterday and very little wind! My thirsty grass was screaming, "YES!" Today is sunny and bright!! Hope it's not in your neighborhood today!
