Che fiero costume D'aligero nume, Che a forza di pene si faccia adorar!

Sorry, I hit you with an Italian Art Song today...this song has been stuck in my head all morning! No idea why, but I felt the need to sing it for ya. *grin*

Today is the day for another Elzybells Challenge! Elizabeth has posted the sketch and some examples, as well as the sketch for the next challenge HERE, so go check it out! You can see all of the cards for the sketch here.


For this card I wanted to use this cute little image from the Cold Nose Warm Heart Dinkies Set. These images are slightly smaller than the originals, but still larger than the ones distributed in North America. I colored her with Copic markers, and added Diamond Glaze, Glitter, and Liquid Applique to add a little something extra. Then I stamped the Tiny Snowflake in Baja Breeze on my background panel, then stamped my Linen Background over it, then sponged the edges to soften it. Before I added the circles, I added some crazy stitching with the sewing machine and some White Taffeta ribbon.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes for Cole...we had a great day. He even tried to wear his "birthday crown" again to school today. Here's a picture his daddy took of him at lunch yesterday.
Such a big boy!! Anywho, he is big now, especially since he got a remote controlled motorcycle that "pops wheelies INSTANTLY!" (he said that to his Aunt Sarah)

Well I'm off to start my day...I hope you have a wonderful Thursday!!
