Cool!

 

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  I was thinking that since this is the last day of 2010 I began to think about what I was doing a year ago.  I joined two great groups (Copic Crafters and Frugal Scrappers) where I have learned so much throughout the year.  And hoping I learn more in 2011.

“Cool” is the word my 10 year old Grandson used when I showed him my new card I just finished making.  You just don’t get better compliments than from a 10 year old boy. When I saw the stamp called Japanese Tilda I knew I had to have her.  I got her right before Christmas and had to color her immediately.  Let me know what you think.

This is the first card where I used my new Desktop Photo Studio. What a difference it makes when taking photos.  No more taking tons of photos to get the best one. 

I’m entering this card in the following challenges:

1. Stamping Scrapping Challenge Central

2. 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog

  3. Nice job, Fran, I love the way you've used a 'scrapping' paper to good advantage. Sometimes the patterns are so big they don't relate well to cards, I have this stack, just haven't used it much, will have to rethink that. C2

  17. You colored her so pretty and the photo is nice, I do not have a photo booth so I will still be taking tons of pictures. I love the butterflies you added to the card, it really pulled it together perfectly.
