Hi folks! Thanks for all the well wishes over our carpet install. It went smoothly. It looks and feels sooooo good! Moving everything out of 3 rooms was actually a nesting mother's dream come true. We were able to clean everything from top to bottom before putting it back in place. I've been working on organizing everything in the nursery now. Not much longer. Went to the Dr. Monday and I'm 1 cm. dilated!! That snapped us into action to get last minute things wrapped up. Takes me a bit longer to create stuff these days, but I've been working on this card for a couple days now. Anna told me about this new blog called Color my Copic. I highly suggest checking it out. It's full of wonderful tips from color combos to different techniques. I saw this tutorial for Coloring Grass and decided to give it a try. Gotta admit, I love how it turned out. Gives the bottom of your image a little extra something. I started off by following Sketch Challenge 287, but I added an extra panel across the center. It's hard to see in the photo, but I dotted the center of the flowers with a Sharpie Poster-Paint pen to help them stand out a bit more. Just wanted to take a moment to point you over to Jodi's blog. It's packed full of inspiration and pictures of Edward ;) she's celebrating her birthday in a very generous way by offering you the chance to win 1 of 5 amazing sets of blog candy. You have until the 31st to enter. Thanks for stopping by!!!
