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!


  1. Well considering you have done so many first's you ain't done too bad I think it's gorgeous and your black hair is perfect wish I could do it mine always ends up looking like a zebra lol love the stitching details and the papers too
    I do hope you feel better soon
    Take care

  2. wow... Its great! Love the image and you've coloured her beautifully! I must say that your stitching is MUCH better than the first time I tried... I went zigzag right off the paper and it was ever so crooked! yours looks pretty good to me!! :)

  3. I can't believe that's the first time you've coloured black hair it's fantastic. I attempted stitching once...it was so disastrous I haven't attempted again.

  4. Oh my goodness her hair is gorgeous, I have been trying for months an months to do something like that, well done, it's a lovely card :) Mandz xox
