"Tickled Pink"

Good Frosty Morning All!!
Brrr...I am still waiting for some warmer weather
if there is such a thing.
We have so much snow, we are running out of places to pile it!!

However, the warmest room in my house is my creative room
so that is where you find me...and loving every minute of it!

I was working on some DT things with flowers, and this little one was leftover
and decided so as not to leave him "forlorn" I cut 4 more
and the idea just kept growing, until I had added a basket and bow.




The flowers were made with the CLD Gardenia die..and only using the top 2 petals...
love that, it gives me another entire flower!!


I "painted" them with PanPastels Permanent Red..giving them a nice soft "pink" color
All the leaves were water colored with TH Distress Peeled Paint Markers
I wanted a white basket, but I aso wanted to use white card stock, so the old
light bulb moment kicked in and I cut the basket from glossy card stock,
making it stand out on the white card stock!!


Look at that bow....I LOVE it.....
I watched the video of the new releases at CLD and they said, the bows
were addicting and you wouldn't be able to stop making them....
well, boy howdy, were they right...I have about a dozen sitting here already...
and they take minutes to make...you can whip those puppies out in no time!!!

Some of my items maybe purchased at Classy Cards 'n Such...and hey if use the code
