Adele card

"Soft View"

Well I finally got my card finished with Adele.. Wow she is just so stunning I had to have just the right paper to go with her and I am not sure that these photos do it justice!
But, wanted to stop and get her on here so you could see... Love putting the finishing touches on the images by putting them onto a card...
Hope you like her too

Adele, red head and brunette

This is a Make it Crafty digi and OMG does she take a little bit of time to color, but oh what fun!
Don't have her into a card yet, just got her done and thought I would share..

It's Karber DT Monday

Well I don't know what it is like where you live but here in Ohio it sure doesn't feel like it is February.. I heard them say that today we will be in the 50's and by Wednesday we will be up in the mid 60's! UNBELIEVABLE!! So I decided I would throw in a Karber EASTER digi stamp to make you start thinking about any Easter cards you might need to get done up.. ( I have mine all done and ready to send out ) shhhh....................:-)
Isn't Easter Leslie just precious? I love her
Here is where you can go to find Easter Leslie and don't forget to go by Karber Blog and check out what all the other awesome DT teams members have come up with for this week!
Oh and I colored with Easter Leslie with my Copic Markers:
E49, 47, 44, 43, 42, 41
E0000, 000, 00, 01
R81, 83, 85
E 55, 53, 51
Y38, 11
BV01, 00, 000
Used a paper piercer to go around the edges of my digi stamp that I had cut out with my Spellbinders Nestabilities.
Memory box tag die, just love the stamp (I'm all ears) I got it from Scrappy mom stamps I have just about everyone of there sentiment stamps as they work perfect with my cards.. Some nice pearls always give a nice final touch to any card and then of course you just have to have a nice big fluffy bow to top the card off! :-)
I hope you all have a GREAT week and thanks for stopping by!

Make it Crafty, shades of Red
Tried to enter this one into Shades of Red with Make it Colorful but didn't know the correct time zone for Australia. So I will go ahead and put it on for everyone else to see.
Just remember that when youa re working with Red, be very careful as to not over saturate your
Paper and use good paper. let dry slightly between layers of red, but don't let it dry to much, then you will have a harder time blending your shades.
