Meet "Victoria"...

Happy Saturday!! Well, I'm back from my trip to see the grandkiddos...and let me tell you, it was fantabulous!!! We went shopping several times, ate lots of yummy Mexican food, crafted (yes, all 5 of the grandkids are crafters!) and went "trick or treating"...such fun!! Unfortunately, my "souvenir" from the trip was a stinky ol' head cold!! ugh! But...no worries, I plan to shake it by next week when my sweet hubby and I take off for Las Vegas!! Never a dull moment around here!!

So...do I ever have some exciting news today!! Wait for it...

Sugar Nellie is releasing 6 new "Adorables" digi images! That's right...you can find them over at Funky Kits! And, as luck would have it, Sugar Nellie is having a big "reveal" of the images today! Wooohooo!! More about that in a a sec...first I'd like to introduce the most adorable of all the "Adorables" (I may change my mind when I see the others...but seriously, I can't imagine a cuter image than this little darlin'!)


Her name is Victoria! I've colored the digi of her head only...but there is another new digi of Victoria that includes her entire body! Can't wait to see her!! So...instead of printing this image with my standard black printer ink, I opted for a Sepia tone ink!! A little trickier to color...especially since I lightened the image a bit! So...she sort of looks like there are no lines, don'tcha think?


I colored Victoria with Copics & Prosmacolor pencils, blended with a little Sansodor. And used DPs from Simple Stories' Baby Steps collection.


Here's the rest of my card "recipe"...

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip & Blush Blossom from Stampin' Up
Flower: Prima
Lace & Pearl "buckle": Wild Orchid Crafts
Ribbon & pearls: my stash
A variety of dies: Magnolia, Sizzix, Spellbinders
Sentiment: Stampin' Up

And a peek at the inside...very, very basic indeed...


And, of course, the ever popular "artsy" view...


Now, my lovelies, it's time for you to pop on over to Sugar Nellie's HERE to see the rest of the new "Adorables"  images. My DT sistahs have come up with some lovely creations to showcase these little sweethearts! Enjoy!!

And...that's it for me! Thank you so much for visting...and for your kind comments that really make me smile! Oh...and please be sure to stop back on Monday, November 7th, when I'll be posting another of my Sugar Nellie DT projects. Until then, I'm sending you all "virtual" hugs...the kind that won't spread any of my cold cooties!

Wow, stunning coloring on this one Pat! It looks like you spent some while on this one; it looks too perfect to be colored within minutes- the kind I do. So I guess I'll stick to my black contours for now:) Really love this!
