Thinking of you...

Since all the new releases from CHA have been released.I'm discovering my wish list is really quite long.Among them was all the new releases from Stampavie.It got me thinking about the ones I had stashed away that I hadn't used or barely used.

So I inked up this cutie.I used Graphic 45 papers with her.Now I had issues coloring her up.I tried her several different colorings,ended up with this.Something is bothering me about this card.I'm not quite sure what it is...Oh well.

Enjoy TTYL

I used Kaiser Kraft's After five papers.This pad is sooo beautiful.See how shiny the foil is...
