A few of my favorite things...

Hey friends...here I am wrapping up another "too short" weekend!! Actually, it's been quite lovely. Chilly here in Richmond, VA...and we even had a dusting of snow last night! Certainly nothing like my family and friends are experiencing in other parts of the world! Good thing too because we haven't even gotten up all of our fallen leaves yet!! YIKES!!

This will be a pretty quick post because I have to make dinner for my DH. Thanks to all of you who have sent good wishes for him. He's recovering from surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon. He's doing well...good thing he has such an awesome nurse taking care of him!! hehehehe!!

So...this card is one I started working on this past week...and just finished it this weekend!


I didn't keep track of the Copics I used. Sorry about that. I will tell you that the image is from Lili of the Valley...these are some of my favortite stamps!! As many of you know, I have a real love for images of little children...and this one is a cutie, don'tcha think??!


I used some new Frost & Sparkle Shimmer Spritz (from Tsukineko) on the entire front of the card...you can't really appreciate the glimmer in the pics but, believe me, it's GORGEOUS!! I love this stuff!


I will also share with you that the red berries inside are pearls that have been colored w/my R27 Copic marker! How cool is that?! And it doesn't rub off! YAY!

I'm entering this little darlin' into this week's Thursday Challenge #76 "A few of my favorite things" at LOTV HERE. Thanks so much for stopping by for a peek...and for your sweet comments that totally make my day!! Have a great week, sweet friends. See you sooooooooooooon!
