…I Would Pick You!

DON’T FORGET TO CHECK OUT MY STAMP SALE HERE!

card_1546

Hey there, everyone…I’ve made it to my 1,000th post!  Yep….1,000…WHOOHOO!!! :)  As I promised yesterday at the end of my post, I have a card for you today using three new images from By LORi Designs’ new Bug & Roo collection designed by Lori’s talented 14 year-old daughter, Hannah Boyd!  I’d like to introduce you to Charlie, Maggie, and Evie…aren’t they precious?!?

I used my Photoshop Elements program in order to create this scene with the children holding hands (Don’t fret!  I will be working on a tutorial to show you how you can do the same thing!), then colored each one with Copic Sketch Markers.  I paired the completed image with some patterned papers from BasicGrey’s Marjolaine paper pad along with some Not Quite Navy and Spring Moss Cardstock.  I used a sentiment from the “Dream A New Dream” set from There She Goes, and added some Moss Rhinestones beside it.  The patterned papers were stitched to the focal panel, and a piece of Chartreuse Saddle-Stitched Ribbon was added to the top portion of the card.  Whatcha think?

That’s it for me today!  Today marks the beginning of my boys’ three week Christmas vacation, and I am so excited to be spending some quality time with them.  There’s a lot to do this week, but I’ll see you all back here tomorrow with another Tuesday Sketch Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for all of your support and encouragement over the last few days…it has meant the world to me!  Until later…
