Lessons Learned

I learned a very important lesson this past Thursday......don't drink 2 large cups of green tea for dinner. I went to bed at 11, but couldn't sleep. So I got up and went to play a bit. Never got to sleep until about 3am. And then of course the alarm went off at 6am.
This adorable Sara Kay image was given to me by my friend Kathy. I finally colored her the other night, using prisma colored pencils and gamsol. I just finished the card today. The patterned paper is a digital from Gina K. The rest of the paper is SU's old olive textured for thebase, and blush blossom for the mat. I paper pierced the DP and used my creamy caramel marker to do the faux stitch. The vines and blossoms are from my stash that's been hanging around for at least a couple of years.

DH really likes it and says it good enough to be framed. Personally, I think he likes it because there's no ribbon on it, (he is definitely not a ribbon kind of guy). Well, there's laundry to be done so I'm off.
