is offering a $15 certificate to their store.
How great is that!

Now for my card.
I used both a DD Image and all DD pattern Paper.
I chose a technique I can HONESTLY say I won't do again
even though I love the results!
At many points, I thought I'd pull my hair out!
Sometimes, life is just like that!

I hope the work was worth it!

Yes, 'tis true.  I had 40 pieces of teensy tiny pieces of 12" paper strips that I wove through 40 other teensy tiny pieces of 12" paper strips!  OMGosh....It was the most creative thought, and I love how it turned out, using Digital Designs Spring Happy Flowers Designer Paper - but WOW - I had no idea what I was getting into!  As for the coloring of the images, I absolutely loved it (as usual.)  I used my water brush and SU pastels.  I love the consistent look they give and the way you can play with them to achieve light sources, which is more difficult with pencil and even my beloved copics!

 The swirly Q is from the $ store - my new Michael's!

 Now how cute is this paper!

  4. Hi Samara,

    Thanks for your kind and encouraging words about my ribbon flower. I'm going Michaels and Joann's tomorrow - I found a really cool flower that would be way easier than trying to use ribbon, needle & thread. I'll let you know how it turns out. LOL

    As for your GORGEOUS paper weaving... what are you talking about? As I said, it's GORGEOUS!! What a fabulous way to use up some scraps. I love your card. Great job girl friend!



My wish for you is a great day full of laughter! Samara x
