Hi there, turns out we have another great grandchild on the way. My brother and his lovely wife are expecting in February and now our cousin Rachel and her husband are expecting in March! So here is the card that I made her using Laura's sketch from this weeks sketch over at 2 Sketches 4 You.

And here is my take:

Trying to add some more visual effects around my work...

Just loving the Dew Drops!

So I've been playing with my camera trying to figure out what is the best time and light to get pictures of true colors of my work and these pictures show really what the colors are like:

-DPs: Anna Griffins collections
-Flowers: Gartner Table Confetti Embossed Ivory Shimmer
-Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox Dark Moss
-Computer fonts: DB Boho Frames 1 using the "L" character at 400 pts and "F" at 600 pts, Ck Bella for both quotes at 38 pts and 35 pts
