Oh No........

Coffee of the Day - Vanilla Macadamia

There is a story behind this card ~ I colored this image about a year ago and then tucked it away in my pack of Basic Grey Origins paper. it was for a challenge over at Sassy Cheryl, the designer of this cutie pie image, and I ended up being late getting something put together. (okay, stop snickering. yes, I know I am frequently late for challenges...... :p) so I was working on a card for Thursday for Shady Tree (yep, anticipation folks!!!) when I came across this precious patiently waiting for my return. You must understand that when I typed out this sentiment, it was something I was quite known for saying myself. have I improved over the past year? nope, not one itty bitty bit. sigh........ maybe by next year. but then again..... maybe not. tee hee!

I am glad I have at least one card with this image, since I no longer have it. and she asked me ever so politely if she could wear her fave in the whole wide world pink tennies. how could I possibly tell her 'no'? I know how much I love every single pair of my pink shoes, and yes, I have more than one! :) as mentioned above, papers are Basic Grey Origins, buttons are all from my vintage stash, little yellow rose is Prima painted with just a touch of shimmerz, and a bit of crochet trim. her shoes, socks, and bow were also painted with shimmerz. I used my gold glitter pen to outline the flowers on the border die. have I mentioned today how much I am enjoying my Big Shot?!

have a most glorious day! love ya!

Oh isn't she just too cute with her pink sneakers. I am loving your layout, the lace and of course, the sentiment.

Stunning card! I love her pink shoes. Thanks for all your comments on my blog. I only shared the more organized part of my ribbon. My desk is a horror story that I won't share. LOL!

Adorable! And what a great story to go with it!!! And don't feel bad, I've tucked stuff away, on my computer, and have forgotten about them too!
