So far, so good in keeping up with my "resolutions".....

I've basically had the image colored up since right after Krista from Saturated Canary released them!  When I finished coloring her, I knew I had to enter the Saturated Canary challenge which is so aptly called "FAIRY TALES"!!  I've been hopping and skipping to and fro between blogs to see if I could find a challenge to enter the card in...... actually  I was clueless as too the layout of the card and went searching for some sketches....

I finally decided on entering The Sketchy Challenges and this is what I came up with.....

 Now, you have to understand.... this card contains quite a few "firsts for me!!  Its my first time using my BV's..... first time doing black hair...... first time doing grass and lastly, its my first time doing stitching on a card!!  What a catastrophe!!!  Let's call it a learning curve and hopefully next time will be better!! lol
 Here's a close up of her face!  That was what drew me to her when I first saw her!!! I LOVE the surprised look!!  It reminds me of myself when I know I just did something wrong (and that happens often) so maybe that's why I like her so much!!

That's all from me for now.... I have the flu and sitting here typing this have reduced me to a coughing mess!

Okay, here goes......

I haven't done this in SO long, I've actually forgotten how..... Its sad, I know!

I've recently made some "almost the end of the year" resolutions...... dont know if I should be committing myself to all of them by actually naming them here... BUT there are 2 that I dont mind sharing!! Hey, who knows, maybe it might even help me to stick to them!!!

The first one is to loose some weight... (oh gawd, did I just say that, AGAIN) anyway, I have some pretty good motivation!! It is my BESTEST friend in the whole wide world's wedding in March next year (actually 2 days before my birthday) and I'm going to be her matron / maid (not sure) of honor!!!  I heard that I'm gonna be wearing purple and have a desperate need NOT to look like Barney!!! I love you.....you love me.....uhm, I think not!!! So, that's the first one!!

The second one is something that all my lovely followers (yes, All 25 of you) might connect to a little better.... I am going to try and post at least once a week, mmm, maybe make that fortnightly, oh heck, who am I kidding!!! At least once a month!!!  okay, okay, more often!!!  And I am going to start by doing my very 1st post TODAY!!

I'm entering a challenge over at the Little Darlings Design Team Inspirations blog, simply because I LOVE Saturated Canary images!!! I only have digi's and since the prize is some rubber.... well, who could resist!??

The challenge is to create a tag, using any Saturated Canary image.  I chose the lovely Violet Vintage image. Isn't she just too darn sweet???

I used some Pebbles paper that I've had for ages and (to be truthful) didn't really want to cut up.. but just had to use it for something!! I cut all the little squares to (hopefully) give a quilt like effect.  Just wish I had the courage to do some REAL sewing!! But alas, its only white gel pen!

I've always had trouble with my flowers not sticking until I read somewhere on Facebook that people use Glossy Accents.... I got some and now its my alltime favorite new toy!!! I stick everything down with it and I lovvvvve the shine it adds!!

I'm still practicing hair, here's a little close up....

So, one done, lets see if I can stick to the resolution!!!
