Mad for Markers

I bad. Well not really bad just a little bad. I went to buy card stock and thankfully the store had the colours I needed but then I was distracted by all the new pretty paper that just cried out for me. I practiced restraint and only picked up a few sheets but when I got home I just had to make a card with this lovely paper from American Craft. The colours are so spring like and they lifted a grey day yesterday. I'm anxious for spring to arrive and stay. We got snow again last night.

The paper is from the Peachy Keen line and the Pebbles Happy Go Lucky collection. The stamp is from Lili of the Valley, coloured with copic markers. To get that nice coral colour I use R00. R01, R02. The blues are done in BG10, BG 11 and BG72. The hair is done in Yr 21, 23 and E33. I used Stampin' Up gross grain ribbon and some pearls from Kaiser Craft. I am entering this is the Mad for Markers challenge. Love this colour combination

Just a short post since I need to dust the house, clean bathrooms and do some laundry. This afternoon I am off the look for a vanity for my bathroom remodel. Really what is up with the prices? I don't want to buy the whole company I just what one little vanity. I'm on my own this week since my DH had to go to work. His holidays are pushed off until things are under control at work. It's a little bitter sweet. I miss time with him but it gives me time to craft during the day. Hope your week is wonderful.
