Crafting When We Can Personalize It!

I hope you all are having a wonderful Sunday. Today we have a new Challenge over at Crafting When We Can. The theme for this week is to Personalize your card by adding a name. I decided to make a card for my oldest daughter since she will be finishing up her first year of college in another week and coming home for the summer. I hope she will like it!

I used Katniss Girl On Fire from Sassy Studio Designs. I colored her with Copic. I added blooms and gems and a swirl of gems. The dies are from Spellbinders. This was a fun image to color up and I think she turned out pretty nice.

Dress - B00, B12, B14, B16, YR02, YR04, YR07
Skin - E00, E01, E11, R20
Lips - R43, R83
Hair - E50, E53, E43, E57


I'm really proud of her making it through her first year of college and being out on her own. I hope she knows that.

I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday! We will be heading off to church soon. It has been a lazy weekend so far and I hope it stays that way LOL I needed some down time, quiet time. I had a really stressful week last week and I have no idea what the heck was wrong with me LOL Tired? Hormonal? LOL Who knows! Just one of those weeks and I'm really glad it is over! hehehe  On to a new week and may it be much better! *hugs* to all of you!!
