Such a Cute Big Sister!

Coffee of the Day - Coconut Pecan

Yesterday we received the news that our nephew and his wife welcomed their second child, a handsome boy, into their family! mom and son are doing great, thank goodness! I am putting final touches on the baby card, so will hopefully share that with you tomorrow. but in the mean time I want to show you the card I made for 'Big Sister'.  I didn't want her to feel left out in the excitement of Baby Brother coming home. :)

the image is one given out over at Maurie Manning's new "Bronte and Bella's Clubhouse" on Facebook. it's a great group of VERY talented crafters. there are challenges and contests that will take place all the time. this image was given so everyone could practice their face coloring and shading.  I know I'll be using it to work on some much needed Copic coloring skills. sigh..... no way could I ever afford one of the Copic classes, so will practice practice practice away here at home with this cutie!

papers and sticker embellishments are from the Basic Grey Fresh Cut collection. sentiment banner was sprayed with glimmer mist. stickles was dotted on the butterfly sticker. ric rack, a doily, button from my stash, and pretty pink wired ribbon complete the card. a few little dots with my white gel pen sit in the upper corner.

Have a great weekend! :)
