Spring Thanks

What a week this has been. Sorry for the non-existant posts. I started back to work this week after the 3 month move hiatus and it hit me a little more than I would have thought. So I'll be back to making cards on the weekends to post during the week. Today I got up real early to make this for you!

Pookie Lollipop is a Lori Boyd creation designed for Stamping Bella. I thought she would be perfect for spring. While I've always colored her in pinks, I decided to give a new copic selection a try...shades of purple. With that in mind I also pulled my Basic Grey Green at Heart 6x6 design paper. I stamped her out on Bella's Bestest paper, inked with Memento Tuxedo black ink and colored with copics. I then cut the image out using my new fiskars finger cutter and shaded her with prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella.

Card details: finished size 5 1/2 inch square, paper: Basic Grey, Bazzil cardstock, glitter, MFT Scallop die-namic, border punch by Martha Stewart, and deckled edge rectangle die from Spelbinders.

Hope you enjoy your weekend.
