Little girl in blue..

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend.  It was a very cool weekend here in SW Ontario.  Yesterday, Bill and I went down to Pt. Pelee, to see if there were any new birds have landed.  It was so cold along Lake Erie - strong cold winds and cloudy, but I had layers of clothing on to keep me warm.
It felt like winter all over again. Brrrrrr.  We had a successful outing, we saw a red-headed woodpecker, palm warbler and a blue gray natcatcher.  These birds don't sit in one place too long, always fluttering around so it was hard to get a real good picture of them and with being cloudy not the best for pictures, but I do believe Bill managed to get a couple of good ones.  I will share with you once he prepares them.

This afternoon, I managed to work on a card in between cooking a roast chicken dinner and a pot of soup for lunches this week.

I found this sketch I really liked from Card Patterns #160.  So I pulled out an image that would work.
I'm using one of the new images from Emily's last release called Flynn needs a cupcake.

 I  stamped her on bella's bestest paper using black memento ink.  I then coloured her up using copics and shading is done with pencils and gamsol.  I based my colours on paper from MME called On the Bright Side - One. I think I got a bit carried away with the glitter, I started with just a bit of glitter on the bottom of her dress, and then i just kept on dotting my quickie glue pen all over, so that's why she has so much glitter - but then again a 'girl' needs glitter right! Finished off with some stitching, prima flower and I punched the leaves using a couple of different Martha Stewart leaf punches.

Okay, off to get some things in order to begin the work week again.  Have a good week, see you again real soon.
