Riding to Grandma's

Don't ask me why I named this card this way. Maybe it is wishful thinking. I may not get flowers, but I get lots of hugs and kisses from my two grand-daughters. I have been so busy this week, I don't even remember why I made up this card. I had to scan it again, and then move it to Photoshop, so it isn't the best posting. I was experimenting on this one and decided to colour my subject first (with Copics) and then I had the brilliant idea to cuttlebug the actual subject, instead of the background. Does it work? Her cheeks are little pink, but then if you were to see my two gdtrs, they look like this when they have been playing. In fact the older one
I nicknamed Snow White, because she has dark brunette hair, fair skin, blue eyes and
the reddest lips going. I used stickles and white flowers to finish the look. The ribbon is actually soft pink with white dots and the background paper is two tone mottled heavy stock, that I made the card from.
At the moment I am sanding and varnishing some woodwork that my husband made, so that
will be all my posting for a couple of days. Have a good evening. Talk soon.

Gorgeous!! your coloring is fabulous and to tell you the truth I couldn't tell the subject was actually cuttlebuged at first. I think it turned out great!!
