You did it!

This has truly been a stressful week and my heart has been very heavy. It is nice to be able to turn to crafting to "get away" even if it's only to hide in my craft room for a little while! While it's been hard to focus and really get into it, I needed to make several cards, including this one for my daughter. I had just recieved my order of the new In Style stamps Anime - have you seen them?! Gahhhhhhhh! They are deliciously cute! This little sweetie's name is Yuki. My girls used to watch Sailor Moon when they were little and I knew the second I saw them that I had to order a couple of these darling little girls. Now, I just have to ..... um .... learn to color them, lol! ;)

I found out at the end of last week that my dd, Chrissy, tried out for Florida All-State and made it through Round 1. She has a voice that would make the angels stop and stare! (a proud mommy moment, sorry!) There are 2 more rounds to make it through so the upcoming month will be filled with anticipation and hopefully joy :)

Sending blessings your way!

  11. Kelly, this card is adorably sweet and so perfect for your sweet DD! You know I'm into the pink and I think your coloring is great. I'm still trying to get the hang of my Copics. I wish we didn't live 1218.56 miles apart because I would *love* to see Chrissy sing and to spend some time coloring with you in your craft room! Hoping this week is better for you, hunny. {{HUGS}}

    Congrats & good luck to Chrissy! Will the proud Momma be marketing CD recordings soon??? I'd buy one for sure! :)

    This card is so cute! Your coloring and shading are beautiful, and I love how you did the ribbon with button! Great layout, papers and colors. It is very apparent that everyone in your family is dripping in talent! As proud as you are of your wonderful kiddos, I know they are proud of you!

    Keeping you in my prayers as always. {{{HUGS}}}
