You're Fabulous

This is my second post for the day...Please scroll down for my YNS challenge post.



I am so excited to share this card with you today.  We are having a new challenge beginning today at 7 Kids College Fund...

~ Circles and Circle Shaped Cards ~

I'll just be honest...when I saw this challenge coming up I broke out into a sweat.  I have only done one other circle card and I wanted to burn it!!  So I was going to take the easy way out and just have circles in my design.  But as I was playing around with pleating the ribbon it magically transformed itself into a circle card!!  LOL  Pleating the ribbon was super easy and if you need a tutorial...THIS ONE is pretty much exactly what I did.  

My image is from The Greeting Farm, Cheeky Cherry Collection - Glamour.  I just love this stamp and couldn't wait to ink her up and color make up.  This is my first attempt at coloring makeup and I think it turned out pretty good!!  I gave her smoky eyes using the Warm Grey Copics and green eyes using YG63.   The DP is from MME, Penny Lane and although it has LOTS of sparkle already in the paper, I just had to add the bling flourish.  And for even more fun...I put the image on a wobbler.  It's a plastic springy thing that makes the card bobble around when you touch it...making the card so much fun to play with too!!   I used a banner sentiment which is computer generated to give her a place to sit.


This card was made for my dear friend Jeri.  (Yep, she's sure to see it before it arrives in her mailbox - sorry to ruin the surprise, Jeri)  It's a just a little something to let her know how much I treasure our friendship and to also thank her for some goodies she sent to me recently.

Her hair ia amazing & I love the make-up colouring; really dimensional emphasizing her sultry green eyes. Delightful the way she is perched on the sentiment too & the ruffled ribbon just adds lusciousness.

Hi Wendy. When I sall this card on the Greeting Farm blog post tonight I just had to come over and say hi to you. This card is just GOREOUS! I love, love how you have colored her hair and that purple just makes the whole card to die for. I wanted to get to know you. From what I have seen in just the last few minutes you are very talented. I also had to chuckle over your two toddlers. My kids are Mitchell 13 and Madison 12. They will be 14 and 13 on July 30th and 31st in that order. I so remember them at 2 & 3 and there are times when I still wish they were still that young. Well, I will quite bothering you. I just wanted to say Hi. Hugs, Lisa G
