Hello Friend...

In keeping with the coloring I've been practicing, I found an adorable little chick on one of my DJ Inkers CDs. Unfortunately, I just scrolled through and copied ones I liked for printing and didn't note the name of the CD I got it from. (I have several) I had fun coloring this with my Koh-i-noor woodless pencils, odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps. I actually colored the image last week, but added some Pink Shimmerz and set it aside to dry, then never got back to it. I have to admit that I just love how I colored those shoes! Today, I had an idea for how to finish it and this is the result...


I took a break the other night after dinner and went to Archiver's to wander around. Imagine my surprise when I saw that they had Nestabilities on display! They had just gotten them in and while I already own the basics, I eagerly picked up the Labels One set! That I had a coupon made the purchase that much more fun. I've been itching to use the dies since then.

I decided to use a Cuttlebug embossing folder (and I've not yet labeled them, so I don't remember the name-it came with some dies, though) and I added more of the Pink Shimmerz to the centers of the flowers. I popped the focal image up with pop dots.

Your Archiver's sounds dangerous...I'm glad I don't have one too close by or I'd be in BIG trouble! Lucky for you that Steve lets you 'disappear after dinner' --my hubby's sweet as pie, but I think I'd have a really hard time convincing him I 'needed' to disappear to Archiver's. lol

Nice score on your new Nesties + darling image (love those sneakers! lol) = CUTE card!
