Bunch 'o Stuff

First things first, you have a few hours left to enter my blog candy!

Second things, I made a purple and lemon Tilda card. I wanted to try pleats and folds on a non-straight dress and work with my purple Copics. I wasn't happy with the way they blend together. I don't have the folds quite the way I want, but I am now happier with purple markers. Then I went for a complimentary color in yellow. I colored her socks first and had to ask DH if they looked like "pee" socks, but things got better when I added more yellow : ) Probably more of a story than you wanted. I went clean and simple on this card, with the addition of just a few lace doilies.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Magnolia-licious Highlites - use only paper
2. Some Odd Girl - complimentary colors - I used violet and yellow.
3. Totally Tilda #29 - fit for a princess

Third things, here's my journal page for the Week 4 Heart Journal with The Greeting Farm. The theme this week is The Girl in Me. I thought it would be fun to image my life in digi stamps. I used Bride Mae and Baby Snuggle Kaylee from Some Odd Girl, Isabelle and Belle from Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Zoe All Excited from Make It Crafty, Sonny Honeycloud - Poetry from Pollycraft, and 50s Sweetheart from The Greeting Farm. I put them in order of my life, me born, me as a schoolgirl, meeting DH, getting married, graduating with my PhD, and having Peanut. You may be wondering why Zoe is all dressed in orange. These are not my school colors. I was reading about academic degree colors and engineering is orange. If I'd read further, I would have discovered that a Ph.D. should be blue, regardless of the field. I like blue better, too, but she was already colored.

Happy Crafting,
