How Sweet You Are



I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again....I just LOVE Sarah Kay images!

This one is called How Sweet You Are. It's stamped on Prism Smooth White and colored with Prisma pencils....LOVE how easily the prisma colors blend on this CS! An extra hat was colored, cut out and popped up on foam tape. The polka dot Spellbinders frame is also up on foam tape. I added some mini flower rhinestones to the bow on her hat (they're glued down with a small dot of Diamond Glaze). Here's a close-up:

So yesterday I worked, then I painted the front door and all the trim around it. Wow, what a difference that made. It looks like a new door now! Of course, while working on the door, I noticed a bunch of other stuff around the house that needs attention...like some door knobs that need to be replaced, I'd like to repaint the accent wall in the foyer a different color (I need a change in there!), some indoor trim is marked up and needs work...you get the picture...one project leads to ten more, right?

So anyway, today I'm going to paint the side door, maybe work on the front porch to clean that up, and then we'll all hang out and watch the race.

Have a GREAT day!

This is just so pretty, Denise! Your coloring of this adorable image is just amazing!!

I totally KWYM about the one project turns into 10...we are adding on an addition, and building a garage, and now matter how much planning and budgeting you do something else always come up! Which is either more money, or more work for us! It is almost done now...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!!
