Just for the pure joy of coloring...

Good day everyone! I hope you're enjoying your weekend and getting to play a little at your crafting table.
  I'm off to a Master Smocking Class in just a wee while, but I have time to post a card I made using Saturated Canary image "Jules".
 I really enjoy coloring these images and find them quite a challenge to get the hair just right. They are so cute, don't you think? This is one of the cards I've made to send to one of the several couples we met while cruising. Each one made the trip completely fabulous and I wanted to share some of my crafting with them. I went a little overboard on the stickles...oh well...
So here is the card front. I decided to make it look a little like and envelope.

Here is a closer look at the image. Please don't laugh at all the stickles I put on her petticoat, I'm rusty, remember?

Sometimes I wish I didn't feel completely anal about finishing the inside of my cards. Once I've designed the front I think I'm finished then the whole process starts over again on the inside! Decisions, decisions, decisions...

And last, but not least is the artsy-fartsy tipped on it's side view...

Just a short post...a busy day ahead of me...
Blessings and hugs...Barb
