Good Luck

Hello my friends… aim early today :-) Aim looking forward to my day today. After this posting i am going to head with my mother in law to Joanns to purchase some fabrics to make curtains for the kitchen and the dining room. She is going to show me how :-) finally the sewing machine gets a use for different things than my cards. Than i am going to get a new hair do. Iam up for something crazy today. I will see what will happen. In Germany i had always short short hair but since we are here it has been always shoulder length. I will see.. definitely need to get rid of my greys buuhuuu. How annoying are those stubborn grey hairs.

Anyhow… you did come not to hear about my hair lol you came to see my card. Thank you girls! xoxoxo
This image “Lucky Cats” i used was one of those i spoke the other day about, which are so cute but really kind of fast to color in. I have colored the kittens in some browns, brown-red and the E41 color sections just to make them stand out a bit more against the rather white background. The background is colored with Prisma pencil “slate grey”. The horseshoe is colored with N colors with Copics. Sir Stampalot has a fabulos collection of Prisma Color pencil sets.

Stamps: new Spring 2011 Lili of the Valley image “Lucky Cats
Sentiment: Good Luck by Magnolia
Papers: My Minds Eye 6x6 Glitter pack
Embellishments: all from Cute Cards and Stamps – horseshoe and the gems are by Kars
Ribbons: green wide Satin Ribbon is from the Ribbon Girls and the grosgrain is from Stampin up

What a stunning card again. You did a fabulous job on coloring. I think your kitchen and dining room will look perfect, because you have shown us how good you are in mixing and matching colors and desings. About the grey hair: for men we say: it's making them interesting and for women we say, they are getting old!!Brrr. Hope you have a lovely busy day and you feel like a teenager after your visit at the hairdresser.
Have a nice cheerfull weekend.
Hugs Marianne
