2 Sisters - Garden Minnie

I finished making the invitations for Trevor's graduation party finally - I'll be posting a pic on Sunday when I post for the Just Some Lines blog, so be sure to check back then.  :)

I spent some time cleaning up my blog yesterday, removing some old links and blinkies and such.  I play in a LOT of challenges, and I've noticed lately that some of them just don't "play fair" - they choose winners that didn't follow the rules, or they never post winners, or never send the prize to the winner, etc.  And although I play because I love to make cards, I also spend a lot of time trying to be sure I followed all of the rules for each particular challenge - and let's face it, I wouldn't play if I didn't at least hope I had a chance at winning!   LOL  So I decided that the only thing I could really do is 1.) stop playing in those challenges, and 2.) only promote the great challenge blogs that are out there - and there are a LOT!  So check out my side bar for fun challenges that I love to play in - and be sure to take a few seconds to read each blog to be sure you are following the rules!!!  ;)

For today, I had a blast making this adorable card for the:

I used the sweet Minnie from Tiddly Inks, colored with a combination of Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, SU! markers & Prismacolor markers.  I used Crystal Effects on her glasses, which you can't really see in the picture but it makes them look so realistic!  DP, ribbon & flower brads from SU!  Quote/sentiment is printed on DP from my word processing program.  I love the colors in this one, and I absolutely adore Minnie's hair... hee hee
Enjoy your weekend!  Peace.
