Thinking of you

Good Morning. Is it just me, or is this year just speeding by? We are nearly 1/2 through 2013. How can this be?!
Today my card is made from an LOTV topper I've had for some time. A UK blogger buddy kindly advised me when the store was having free shipping. I see these lovely toppers used so many places, and had been wanting some of these cuties. Finally had a chance to use it.  Here goes:

- image was sponged around the sides & corners with DI Antique Linen and Spun Sugar. I also used Spica pens to add a bit of sparkle on the flowers; a Clear Star Gel pen added some bling on the table & bench legs. I did not use my signature stamp on this one, since it was a topper.

- trimmed the green mat to fit the image. Diecut the central portion of the green (a snippet!) as well as the multicolored mat behind the green. This was a background I had made used a Hero Arts Lotus Stamp that I had spread various colors of gelato markers over, then spritzed with water. It had seemed 'too busy' for anything I have done todate, but thought it would look cheery with the bunny colors. This was also a snippet., center portion diecut away to save on layering.

- Sentiment by Elizabeth Craft, also a snippet.
(since I have some snippets on this card, I'm off to see what those Playground girls are up to this morning. They get into the most delightful mischief. Com'on along with me, and feast your eyes on some luscious cards and projects.)

This is going out to a blog buddy at our Playground group and I hope it will bring a little cheer to let her know she is in my thoughts.

I'll try to get back later this afternoon, with another post. Been experimenting with my new camera, trying to make a shaped rose, and getting ready to have a new television installed in our basement room. (No I didn't damage the old one with my recent water episode! We have a Sony Wega that is about 9 yrs old, and is getting ready to bite the dust. Now you don't expect me to be crafting in a basement with no tv. I must have the television on to old movies in order to create! HA HA HA.) Have a blessed day and see ya later! Thanks for joining me this morning. Hugs
