For Livia

This week has been just crazy. First I was ill and then I have to work crazy hours just to catch up. Well -I should not complain. Luckily my hubby takes care of the household and Isac while I am working my b... off.

I had promised my colleague that I would make a card for the Christening of a little Livia. I decided to go for pink and brown (cardstock and DPs from SU).
The colours are not really showing off on the pic that well - due to that it's pitch black here (Well - it has started to snow - for the first time - so I am hoping it will stay that way so Isac get's to play in the snow this year (last year was really a crappy winter)).
Anyway - I coloured my new cute WoJ stamp with my SU markers on aquarelle paper with my aquarelle brush of course. Added some pink and green stickles and highlights with white gel pen. Charm and spacers from the lovely and talented Marlene - Thank you sweetie. I also needed to use my new nestabilities - how in earth could I live without them before??? ;-))

This weeks challenge at A Spoon Full of Sugar is Blooming Marvelous. I discovered that I only needed floral paper and some flowers to enter - so luckily that was what I already had mounted...hihi.....

Well - need to go to bed now so that I am ready for the last day at work for this week.

Natti, natti

Hej Anki,

Loveeee her and I thought the coloring you did to make it look like fur was over the top and her facial details were great. Your artistry is great
