Thinking of... Des!

When The Greeting Farm came out with this little cutie, HG Laundry, I jumped for joy! Anyone who knows me (or regularly reads my blog) knows that I'm the laundry queen. I do laundry for a family of six, five of whom are males. It's never ending! But it's also my excuse to craft... my laundry room is right next to my craft room, so I fold and switch loads while I craft... there's a bright spot to everything if you look hard enough!

I'm dedicating this card to my BFF Desiree (Des). I recently got her hooked big time on Copic markers (and now the wonderful world of rubber stamping). She had just received her markers the last time we got together for a crop day, so I was using them to demonstrate some coloring techniques. I think I lost her along the way, though. She sat back and said she was overwhelmed! {LOL} Anyway, I've been hanging on to this sweet colored-up image for nearly two weeks, and she's finally a card! So this one's for you, Des!

I uploaded her on Wednesday to the TGF Galleria for the Farm Fresh Friday Sketch Challenge #7, but am just now getting a chance to feature her on my blog.

I turned the sketch sideways for my card. She is colored with Copics (of course). The cardstock, DP and flower transparency (seen tucked in on the right) are all from a past Taylored Expressions Key Ingredients Kit. The greeting is from a Papertrey Ink stamp set. Can I say, I'm just loving these colors together!!!

Before I go, I have two digi alerts and a reminder:

First, Dustin Pike is selling nearly all of this digi images for one low price of $25 (I haven't counted them all, but I'm thinking that's like 25 cents apiece or thereabouts?). He's going to start drawing for a company that will put his images in rubber. The offer is only good until midnight September 25th!

Second, this is Thursday, so that means a free digi at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps! This week's free digi is Flip the Frog! Hurry, because he'll hop away when tomorrow comes!

Speaking of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps, I hope you're taking the Autumn Stroll blog hop, which started yesterday at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Blog. Be sure and check out all the pure loveliness the SNSS Design Team has for you! My post will be coming tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
