Again, this is an old image that was in the 'binder' of colored images. I used an old Mojomonday sketch for my inspiration...not sure which one though. I picked up a small notebook recently and hope I can maybe keep track of the sketches I use and supplies too. That's the plan, but whether it actually happens remains to be seen! As far as this one? Fluffles is the main image and I used some old SU dp. A quick and easy one, but I like it.
Well...I am off to begin book #7. I am hoping to read 8 books this month and I think I should be able to finish them.
Thanks for stoppin' by ... happy crafting and happy reading!

I had a fun evening out with the Calgals last night...even though we were missing 3 of the girls. I actually managed to finish 3 cards! Shocking for me. I usually have great intentions and then spend the night coloring and not actually creating!
I had a date with my oldest today. We went to see Harry Potter 7 pt1. It was great. I was a little worried that it might have been a bit too much for her, but she did fine. We are both looking forward to pt 2!! I got the series for Christmas and she has started reading them. She should be finishing up book 1 this weekend. I am so happy that she loves to read. I am so thankful for books, like Harry Potter, that have opened her up to a love of reading. Speaking of which...I was wondering if anyone out there with an ereader could give me their recommendations. I have read so many reviews on each and every brand name. I have no idea! I am really looking for a no frills...cheaper...ereader. Something that is user friendly. Any thoughts?
I should be finished book 6 in the next day or two, so I will be back with another card too.

This is a very simple one, but I had the image sitting on my table and decided to go with it. It is quite a large image, so not a lot was needed. I like it.
Thanks for stoppin' by...onto book #6...;0)

This image was sitting on my table, so I thought I should use her. I am pretty happy with the way this one came together. I used up some flowers that have been sitting in my stash for sometime and now that I have revamped my cardstock and DP it is SO much easier to find something.Thanks for stoppin' by...I am off to start book #4!
