Sugar 'n Spice Marci... and a Survey!

Well, this is a rather late Friday post, isn't it? I confess I haven't felt myself the past couple of days... been a bit under the weather and I'm only today finding a bit of energy to get back to "normal," whatever that is! lol The washing machine is going full tilt, so I guess that's a sign. (*grin*)

One thing that makes me happy is coloring up sweet Marci. Is she not the cutest thing? This is Sugar 'n Spice Marci from La-La Land Crafts. Pairing her with patterned paper from the Modern Homemaker collection by October Afternoon was a natural fit!

I've loosely followed Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #105. I sat down to do the math to figure out the sizes of the squares to cut my paper, but my brain got tired (ha). I gave up and used patterned paper with squares built in instead. I'm terrible, I know. :) That cool ruffled edge was made with my Magnolia DooHickey die called Antique Lace which I love love love!

Okay, so I've got a little survey going on here on the right sidebar of my blog (for those reading this by email or RSS feed). Please take a moment to pop in and vote for the item you'd love to win. There's a very good reason I'm wondering, and all will be revealed soon!

Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back soon with Sketch Saturday!

Sorry for following so late, but now that i've found you... muaaahhhhahaha... just playin'.. this is such a super sweet card. I love the colors and you've done an amazing coloring job. I don't think it's lazy at all to use dp with squares. It's a nice touch. :) I'm with Debbie on your poll... hahaha, but if it helps narrow down the selection I'll play along. HUGS!!!
