In My Thoughts

When I saw this set I just had to have it.  I send my mother a card for her to use every month and this set just made me think of her.  I am not one who is very happy with coloring images so I usually try to stay away from this kind of sets but I know I will use it a lot and maybe improve enough in my coloring technique to venture on to other sets.

I was a very good girl and waited until the budget said it was alright before I ordered out of the new catalog so this is my first time playing with my new toys.  The things I just had to have was the Perfect Pennant Die, and of course the new Impression folders.  I love the Cherry Cobbler so it was an easy choice which color to get in one of the new ribbons.  I loved that the image fit in the 2-1/2" circle punch except when I was coloring the image I stuck my pinkie in the ink and it got on the paper. It was a blessing in disguise because I have had the idea of the heart pop out for a long time and it fit perfect over my smudge.  The pearls added the perfect touch to make the dots on the ribbon pop.

  1. Debbi, this is so pretty. I love your layout and pearls. Your embossing really stands out when used on part not all of the page. I'm gonna have to try this.

  2. This is gorgeous - this set is on my wishlist for my next order - I love to color! I love the way you used the half pennant image as a accent with the 2 1/2 inch circle and the 3D heart is an awesome addition ... 'what booboo? ;)
