It's Lily

Hey there! I know, I'm such a naughty blogger. I'm sorry, but I've been really busy lately and I haven't had time to post. Ok, well, I knew I was going to be busy and I could have written something incredibly witty and set it to post at a later time while I was busy (I love that blogger has that feature now!), but I didn't have any projects that were blogworthy. And this one is just ok, in my opinion, but I had to post it cuz that Lily is just so darn cute! See, this card is what happens when I experiment. When I start to test out unfamiliar territory. First of all, I'm coloring! It's just as much fun as, if not more than, when I was 8. These are my copics and, unfortunately, I love them and want more. If you've paid for these, you know why that's a bad thing. But I love them, I do. And I love Lily, too. Pink Cat definitely needs to make more of these. And second, when was the last time you saw me use Apricot Appeal? Mmmhmm. I don't think it's the color I mind, but just the whole thing put together. I mounted Lily onto Apricot Appeal cardstock, and added the white dots with my pen. Then I thought, oooh! I have that same color DSP. I'm not sure what thought I had that made it ok to use the same exact patterned paper under my circles, but there it is. So, next time, I'm hoping to be thinking a bit more clearly when I put something together. Fingers crossed, people.

Stamps: Lily & Tweet (Pink Cat Studio), Simple Little Things (Papertrey), Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko), Paper: Papertrey white, Apricot Appeal CS & DSP (SU!), Accessories: Marvy punches, Copics, Inkssentials White pen

Hey, this is adorable! And having seen it in person, I really like it. And, apricot is not a color I think about all that much, but it so works in this case! And ... [and and and, get over it, dee] I love to color, too, and I'm nearly twice your age!

Coloring is one of my favorite pasttimes. I'm sorry my kids are grown up and don't want to color with mom anymore.

Lily is just the cutest darn thing! Do some more!!!!
