Pretty pose

This year, I'm determined to color up more stamps/images and use more supplies on hand (yeah, talk myself into USING those pretties, instead of SAVING them - I know you crafters know what I'm talking about, right !!).
With that being said, I've colored up a new My Bestie image, broke into a new paper pad AND used a brand-new diecut for the first time!  Oh, and the heart embellishment was in my Christmas gift box, too.

  29. This card has stolen my heart. It's one of the best cards I've viewed while cruising blogs of cards entered in challenges I plan on entering. It's nice to see what the competition is. Hahahhaa. I might lose to this's outstanding. The image is adorable and colored to perfection. This card has everything I love...cute image, lace, ribbon, layered flower with the pearl center, punched greenery, swirl, the diecut Viewfinder, the papers and all the layering. Tim was looking over my shoulder and said to tell Lillian: "That's one of the prettiest cards I've ever seen, besides yours sweetheart." He had to add "besides yours sweetheart" since he wants me to cook dinner. hahaha. Lillian, this is a fabulous card. You've got my address, right? Hahahahahaha Just kidding BFF. Hugs, Gail
