Here are few of my favourite things...

As the song goes...
Here are few of my favorite things.
Today I am going to show you a card I made on Sunday night. I adore this new stamp that I just picked up. I know this image has been around for a while but everytime I see it, it makes me smile. (It's a Mo Manning stamp.) It reminds me of my daughter and they just grow too darn quick. It's my daughter's last day of grade one today. GRADE 1 - poof!! Gone just like that?!!!

I would like for someone to explain to me where the time has gone and I would like to know who I can talk to about getting that time back??!! Anyone know??

Well, as I said this image makes me smile so I hope you like the card :

I used the sketch from The Sweetest Thing
Here is a snapshot of the cutey :

And a close-up of the Copic markers I used :
I am also submitting this card for :

Mo's Digital Pencil : Flowers, Flutters, Fairies, Fancy Fold...
(I went with flowers)
Paper Sundaes : purple, wings, gems and/or paper piecing
(I obviously went with the purple and gems)

CMC - coloring folds, pleates and ruffles

Stampin' For the Weekend - Pick your fave thing
(besides it reminding me of my daughter - it would be a tie between Copics and MME patterned paper)

OCC - DT Call - anything but it has to be your style.

Well, I think this card suits my style to a tee.
Cutesy, coloring and bright.

I should run but don't forget to scroll down for my previous post and the new Fab 'n Funky challenge!!
Have a great day.
