WOJ Lavender and Lace

I am absolutely in love with this card. I really hope this doesn`t sound like boasting, but I do think this is one of my favorite cards. I love the stamp, Kneeling Willow, love the color and think the lace dollie is just perfect...a $store purchase. What makes it even more perfect is that I colored it using my wonderful Twinkling H20s and Prismacolored Pencils.
I used the H20s on the lavender apron and the flowers...Prismacolored pencils and OMS on everything else. I used a lavender spica pen on the ribbon trim and flower design on the dress and apron.
This second picture shows the twinkle effect of the H20s. The flower stamp is from Alota and fits inside the oval nestibility perfectly. I love how it surrounds Willow.

On the inside of the card, I used Versamark and Perfect Pearls on the image and the curvy rectangle nestibility for the sentiment.
It has been very busy around here this week. My Mom left yesterday for Calgary. She is almost 91 so travelling is a bit of a concern for me but she has a sister who she enjoys visiting. My son`s shift at his work also changed so I must drive him into work each day this week which is really effecting my stamp time....woe is me. Imagine a mother helping out her son!
On a serious note, I found one lurking in the corner, thanks so much for the wonderful comments. As soon as I turn on my laptop, I go directly to my dashboard to see if there are any comments. It makes me feel so wonderful to have someone comment. I try to do it on other blogs so I do realize it takes time and effort but I wanted to make sure all commenters know I love to hear from you.
Guess I had better wake everybody up...another work day for the non-retired...do I sound pleased with myself!
Hugs
Heather
