Appreciate Everything - Paper Smooches CAS(E) This sketch!


Today I was e-mailed by Kim Hughes that I will be
the FEBRUARY Paper Smooches
Guest Designer!!!!

Wow.

I still can't believe it... I entered a few cards..
and really thought, not a chance...but 
Hey..why not?
So surprised..

This sums up my feelings




SO AMAZED at how the Sparkling H2O's
look on this shimmer paper cardstock!
The cardstock is a light light vanila pinkish..with shimmer..
I think I got it at Paper Source.
The kind of paper you see as wedding invitations.
(I have kind of been collecting art supplies
since my art days in college...just recently I let go of all
of my acrylics... I know. how could I?)


I really went lighter to darker and "muddied" up 
the images to have a real concentration of color....

I love CAS(E) this sketch, so here I am again this week..







Now my friends...it is YOUR turn to get crafty!
