You + Me

Thank you all for checking out my card for today! I hope you have had a great weekend. I love Spring so much but boy, those allergies with the pollen and dust definitely kick in for me every year. I pretty much “knocked out” all Saturday and Sunday.
I’m sure you have seen this cute new Tilda image on some blogs already since she was available over at Magnolia-licous, now you can pre-order her and as soon Diana has a new shipment in, she could be yours.
Well, i do not know much to tell you about my card. I wanted to make something special for my friend Christina. I knew she loves the stamps form the new Princess collection. The papers seamed to be just the perfect fit to use with Fairy Tilda and the frog :-)  I know it is nothing “special”, but note that i spent a bit extra time with planning my layout and cuts of the Designer Paper carefully? This way i was able that the recipient is able to read “You + Me” two times at the top left and bottom right and “I love you for who you are” at the upper part as well.

This time i did not use any Stickles on flowers or the image itself, instead i used a Copic Glitter pen to add shimmer and sparkle just to Tilda’s wings. This way the multicolored wings would still show and not be hidden from layers of Stickles. As you can tell.. i love to color my images in with bright cheerful colors.

Hi Everyone,

I've been looking to figure out a place to begin the Acai Berry free trial & was just wanting to know if someone had some opinions on whether or not it works for dieting? So far this is the 1 [url=http://acaiberries.zoomblog.com/]article[/url] I've been able to come across that seemed realistic for the goals I have. Thoughts?
