Hi Everyone! Happy Tuesday!
Don't you just love when things start falling in place and luck seems to be on your side? Well...our beaches are being cleaned and the health hazard warning has been lifted. That means the beach is open and my feet can feel the sand and water again!! I have been without a desktop computer for about a month now and finally found a good deal on a hard drive over the weekend. I am almost back in the swing of things. Just need to learn Windows 7! Probably not a good thing for a person my age to have a Mac laptop and a Windows desktop. I keep looking in the opposite direction for the minimize and maximize buttons!!
Anyway...My card today is for my last post as a Guest Designer Diva for Sweet 'n Sassy Digi's. June just seemed to speed right by! I love this little Flower Pot Girl and colored her up with Copics. I gave the image touches of atYou Spica for some glitter on her hairband, flowers and the butterfly. The felt flowers are cut with a CB flower die. The DP is Cosmo Cricket DeLovely. The layout is this weeks Card Patterns Sketch #70.
Speaking of the butterfly...I plan to send this card to my daughter. The meaning of the name Vanessa is "butterfly". Butterflies have always been special to us for many reasons. She recently lost her dog that I had gotten for her for Christmas when she was seven. Little Lacey was by my daughter's side for fourteen years. Vanessa buried her on her Dad's ranch and placed a couple of purple paper butterflies with her. She asked Lacey to come see her one more time. The very next day Vanessa saw a purple butterfly flying around the yard. I did not realize that there really is purple butterflies until I looked it up and sure enough there are! So of course the butterfly on the flower pot just had to be purple!
Copics Used: Skin (E00), Hair (E21, E25), Flower Pot/Grass (YG23, YG95), Hairband/Dress/Flowers (Y13, Y19), Big Flower (RV23, RV25), Butterfly (V12)
I wish you a wonderful week!
See you back here real soon!
