Hang in there

Happy Monday my friends! Can you believe we had 70 degree weather the other day and tonight we have a winter advisory, with possible accumulations of snow 5 or more inches. I am so ready for Spring. Oh well I guess that's what I get for wanting to live in a 4 season state. I would take this over all year round heat any day.

For today's card that was created by yours truly, yay I got to craft this weekend (well only a little, enough to make one card), I used a sketch I saw on Sketches in Thyme.



The image was a freebie over at Just Some Lines. So I only had some textured white cardstock from American Crafts to use for the image which made it a bit difficult to color but it turned out ok. I used Prisma Colored pencils. I REALLY want to learn how to properly use Copics. There is a class once a month at a scrapbook store about an hour away. I am hoping one day to attend. Maybe when I am in between semesters (Spring to Summer) I can make it to one. Anywho, I used papers from Echo Park's A Walk in the Park collection. YUMMY papers!!!

Hello my name is Leeanne and I am in LOVE with Echo Park papers. LOL!

Anywho, I did a little stitching with my sewing machine, I think I am also going to become addicted to that, I LOVE the look! I used some Micro Mini Alphas from Basic Grey. Some chipboard shapes from Cosmo Cricket's Pixie-Licious collection matched perfectly, that would be the button and butterfly.

Well that's it for today. Please don't forget about the sketch challenge for this month, you only have 2 more days to enter. Click here for more info! I hope ya'll have a fabulous day, I am off to make breakfast for my family and then off to school. I am thinking Belgian Waffles! YUMMY!!

Happy Crafting!!

Awesome Leeanne! I totally know what mean about feeling like going to Echo Park Paper Anonymous! I seriously sang them a little song the other day. It was like 1:30 in the morning and I thought it would be a good idea! haha.
