Hello sunshine

Good morning!

I've got to take a quick Glee moment just to say how much I enjoyed last night's show. Yes, all of the Whitney songs were wonderful but it was more than that. The theme of counting down all of the 'lasts' during a senior year type of situation was really poignant and so bittersweet. Plus it seems like it has been ages since Kurt had a fab solo and his rendition of 'I have nothing' brought tears to my eyes. Sigh...

Yesterday I took the afternoon to make my 'start to finish' card making video series for April. I inked up this beautiful Happy Days Annabel from Crafty Sentiments Designs and I totally love her. She is a bit more intricate of an image so I ended up having to break the series up into four different videos this time. You can check any of them out here or on the Color Me Copic blog.
It's funny because the whole time that I was making this card I was just going along la-di-da without any real story or plan for her other than wanting to use the roses. Though once I got it finished and showed it to my sister, right away she said, "She looks like Belle from Beauty and the Beast." What?! You're crazy! But there she was... the brown hair, yellow dress and even a garden of magic roses. So yea, apparently I was subliminally channeling Belle onto Annabel, LOL!

Alrighty then. Thanks for stopping by and I hope that your day is full of sunshine too! :)

The cutest little goldfish...

Good morning!

It's been a beautiful weekend here and I'm happy to report that the snow is melting away. :)

Perhaps this little beauty helped to bring the sunshine my way... I like to think so anyway. I actually colored up this sweet Annabel the Mermaid stamp last weekend for a series of coloring videos that I did and I finally got around to putting her on a card. If you are interested in seeing how I colored her up, you can find the videos here, here, and here. Or over on the Color Me Copic blog as well.
Something about Annabel just made me think goldfish, I betting it's all of her ruffley fins... and I'm really happy with how she looks all decked in orange.

On a completely separate note, I've been enjoying cruising around Pinterest and would love to find some new pinboards to follow and new inspiration. So if any of you fellow pinners want to leave me a link to your boards I will totally have a blast checking them out!

Later gators!
