These are the copic markers I used to color the image. I did not add to many embellishments. Got a couple of buttons from Georgianna and used one of her MS border punches and some lace.

A Present for Me!

Present for me 2014
Hello everyone and welcome to my blog. We have started the Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge and for this week the twist is to make a card with your favorite color. I want to tell you it was hard taking pictures of my card for this week. It was a cloudy day and the wind was blowing and I had a hard time keeping the card standing. So mother nature was not being very nice. At home I do not need to go out side and take my pictures. So please bear with me. Our sponsors are for the month of April.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I so sorry for not posting more. Just to let you know I really think this has been so good for Georgianna. We have been working on the cord of her body and doing lots of exercises to try and tell her muscles in her legs they will walk again some day. So do not take little things for granted because once they are gone it is so hard to get them back.

 Love

Had to share this with you. I was done with all the coloring and working on the grass and to my surprise my YG67 leaked all over the bottom and I was not very happy, what to do? So I added flowers. I used Martha Steward hydrangea punch and covered my spot. These crazy thing happen to all of us. We just need to think of how to hide it, right?

This was a pin that lost a stone so I added some orange stickles several times and each time I would let it dry until it filled the opening. Added a mesh with some pearls.
