You Mean Everything

If you are looking for my BLOG CANDY, be sure to check it out here!  It's available until March 3rd!

Today, my previously homeschooled daughters went off to public school.  I've been thinking about them a lot.  My little Emily's lip was quivering as I left her at the school today.  Can you tell I was thinking about my girls today?  This image is A Tasty Read by Elizabeth Bell Designs.  It's one of my favourites!  I coloured her in with Copic Markers (colours listed below).  I love the combination between pretty scallops and shabby distressing! 

I haven't really shown you what I do with the inside of my cards.  I don't do anything fancy, but I like to give it a more finished look.  Sometimes I use a small stamp on the inside.  In this case I used a strip of the patterned paper and distressed it.  Simple, but finished!
