Try It Out Tuesday #7 - Miss Chief

You ever have one of those days when all you wanted to do was crawl up in bed and not get out? That was my day today. We had an unexpected snow storm, instead of staying home, we went in at 11:00. I wasn't feeling quite up to par and was cold to the core from shoveling snow to get my car out. And we didn't have any power. But I made it through. Now quite sure what tomorrow is going to being, but I'm pretty much ready for anything after today.

Now on to better things! Suzanne, our extremely talented Design Team Leader, gave us a 3 for 1 embellishment challenge for The Try It Out Tuesday Challenge this week for Follow Your Heart, Susana's Custom Art and Card Design's store blog. We were tasked with using at least three embellishments on our project and I think I did that with this one! Miss Chief caught my eye because she has that little devil tails and those pointed ears, but she's also got the sweetest, cutest look to her! She stole my heart. I colored her with my copics and layered her onto the new Journal Cards by Pebbles. I wanted to have something that I could make notes one, write recipes, jot down ideas I have for cards, just about anything and these are perfect! I layered it using some great paper from the Dovecraft Retro stack, and added some Kaisercraf Rhinestones to the corners. I touched her dress and hair up with some Pink Poinsettia and Coffee Shimmerz and added a Bazzill pink flower. and hanging from the flower, I had to put some charms by Blue Moon. I love how this cutie came out. And for $3.95 for a wood mounted stamp, that price just can't be beat!

Susana has a ton of new item in the store, including copic bundles, nestabilities, tiger eye pearls, and our own, Anki's Sweethearts for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, exclusively to Susana's store! Los of new things to spend your money on!

Make sure to stop over to the Follow Your Heart Blog and take a look at the other great creations from my talented Design Team members. And while you're there, please welcome Lynn Mercurio as one of our Guest Design Team members. And Aud, you rock for wanting to hang with us! Both of these ladies are so talented and gracious that I feel so luck to be creating with them!

Now I'm off to bed to see if I can warm up a bit. Enjoy!

You poor thing...I know first hand how terribly it is to be without power! It's true that you don't miss something until it's not there anymore!

This card is fantastic. Love the texture in your patterned paper and the sparkle in her hair...AWESOME!
