Sweet Marguerite

Our Seriously Creative Design Team had some crop time last night as a way to say good-bye to our Design Team member, Chris, who is moving away this week. We laughed a LOT and I think all of us even managed to complete a project or two!

I finally took time to photograph a few recent projects, which I'll share with you over the coming days... but today I'm sharing my fave of the cards I made last night! I've coloured (with Copics, of course) a new image from Stampavie (Sarah Kay) called "Marguerite taking Ruben for a walk" and paired her with my fave of the new collections by Crate Paper, Portrait.

Aren't those papers delicious? Did you notice my sentiment? I stamped it (a fave of mine from Hero Arts) onto a mini calendar from the paper collection- this card will go in my stash for an upcoming May birthday :) I cut out Marguerite from one of the new Spellbinder's nesting labels (thanks Cheri) which will now go to the top of my wish list cuz it's pretty fabulous! The layout was inspired by the current Sketch Saturday layout- hope you can see the resemblance ;) I love giving a twist to sketches!

last night was a blast, and I'm still recovering! got home at 2am, then Ethan woke up and didn't go back to bed until 3:30...then Kieran woke up at 6:30...3 hours of sleep isn't fun, but it was worth it! I love how your card turned out! I didn't get to see it up close last night. I love the way you colored her pants, they're awesome! I love that line of papers too...anything crate really ;) We'll have to do that again, sooner rather than later!
