Little Paper Shop Digital Image

Hi Friends! In moments of clarity, have you ever asked yourself the question "Why?". LOL! I opened a container full of craft stuff, mostly "junk" and was looking through them and I was like "why the heck did you buy these?", "Why did you think these were nice?", "When did you think you were going to use these". . .LOL! Seriously! I don't know what overcomes me when I'm at the store. I have stuff that I can't imagine putting on my cards or scrapbook layout . . .well, today. . .back then I did buy them for a reason.

I found these cute heart die cuts. . .a few that were actually worth using. I'm hoping to breath some life into the junks that I bought 4 years ago. I don't have the heart to throw them out. . .they may be useful one day. It's the pack rat in me.

Anyway. . .now to my card. Just a whole lot of pink on this one. I won't go into my disaster story because you'll think every card I make starts off as a disaster. . .but it's true, many of my cards start off that way. This one was no exception but what matters is the end results.

Just a hint. . .if you see my images cut out and remounted. . .it's usually because I messed up. LOL!


I colored my image with Copics. . .again. I think I'll stop stating the color medium I used unless it's other than Copics, okay!

Whoohoo! Today is a beautiful day. I want to go bowling today but my husband hurt his bowling finger. . .I haven't gone bowling for 3 weeks. I want to leave him behind and just go bowling without him but he'll feel bad.

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!

I love this card and the pinks. And your remounted image adds a lot of dimension and depth to the card, I think. :-)

One request... do you, by any chance, think of doing a small tutorial on cutting stamped images? I wish you would, because I don't know how to cut them well enough. Love how your umbrella's handle (which is so thin) has been cut to perfection.

Hugs,
Smita
