Tuesday's Card...

For today's Sunshine's Stamps card, I chose to use Romeo again. However, there is something missing from good ol' Romeo...his extended heart. (scroll back a few cards to see what he looks like normally) I wanted to show you all the versatility of using a digi image. Hopefully this doesn't get me in any trouble with Sunshine :) I was looking to make an Easter card and just LOVE Romeo....but his 'heart' just wasn't working for Easter.I opened him up in Paint Shop Pro and simply 'erased' his heart, added a few lines and boom....an altered image :) This is one of the main reasons I just love working with digi images. The same thing was done to "Huckleberry" on Stephanie's Blog.....Hucks heart was removed and an Easter egg was put in it's place. THIS is Huck with the heart...and THIS is him with the egg. Yep, I LOVE digi images :) If you get a chance, click on her link and check out her images! I actually didn't use any Copics on this image....it's all Prisma pencils!! It's hard to really see it, but I also used white fun flock on his tummy, snout and ears.

Blog Candy!!!

Valentine's Party....postponed......

Well, thanks to Mother Nature....Paige's Valentine's Day party at school
was postponed until Tuesday. It gave us a bit more time to work on her
'mailbox' though, so it's all good. She was very happy with how it turned out.

Is it Spring yet???

Ah yes, just as good ol' Punxsutawney Phil claims 6 more weeks of
winter....we get hammered. Super. AND to top it off, with the combined
snow days and Presidents Day vacation days, my kids are off for a total
of 6 days in a row. Apparently Mother Nature has a sense of humor.
Again, super. NOT that I don't like having my kids around....it's the
catastrophe of a mess that they seem to leave behind. Not to mention
the slew of winter clothes that 5 kids leave behind when returning from
frolicking in said snow :(
At least it's pretty to look at!!!

Just around the corner......

Valentine's Day is just a few days away....are you ready??
Hopping in just in time for the big day is Huckleberry.
Another absolutely ADORABLE image from Sunshine's Stamps
I just LOVE pink and brown together. Perhaps not the traditional
Valentine's colors, but they work :)
I colored the image using Copics and Prisma pencils.
I also used a Martha Stewart border punch, and some
Kaiser pearls.
