Whimsy Inspiration - Stargazer Lilly

Howdy -

   Well we got the rain! There has been some flooding around here, we have been lucky and just good rain. All the rain left Hubby and I inside all day. Now we have a list of "chores" a mile long, and many of them are inside jobs. Guess how much we got done yesterday while "stuck" inside while it rained all day.  Laundry. That is just about it. Oh and I got some coloring done. We basically were pretty lazy. Why is it that rainy days make it hard to work on chores. Hopefully we can catch up today. If not our list will grow and then move to tomorrow.

Here is my card for Whimsy this week - I have really been wanting to color the new Stargazer Lily image.

Love this image - Dana's Digi - Stargazer Lily - I have layers and layers of coloring here... LOL I colored, and then set it aside, then decided it wasn't right and colored over it again. This is one of the few that you see the ink on the backside of my paper. I use Papertrey Ink card stock to color. And not much soaks through. This one shows about 90% on the back side, wish I had taken a photo and showed you. After I picked out my pattern paper I went back and colored the background green to match. Went over it with the same green Copic about 10-12 times. Love how it almost has a velvet look to it.

The paper is from a older pad, from K&Company. Just says Designer Pad. The front I used just a simple pattern, but take a look at the inside of the card... sort of matches huh?

Sorry the photos are sort of dark... lots of rain remember? Anyway love how it sort of matches the image. Back to the front of the card. I matted with Bazzill Dotted Swiss Hot Pink card stock, on a white card stock base. Matted the image and the sentiment. I had to use that sentiment it is just so me lately -

"Life - is about playing catch up. Just when you think you've reached the bottom of the list, it miraculously grows." Yep... that is life around here!

I added tiny little pearls to the white flowers on the pattern paper on the front, and then just a touch of stickles for some bling.

Inside kept it simple, just using the one pattern paper, matted and a white box for signing.

Here are the Copic colors - may have used up a few... LOL

Now what is on the list for today? Breakfast with the locals at the cafe. Priorities you know. Then maybe the grocery store. Then back to some "deep" cleaning. Trying to do a little Spring Cleaning around here. Hope I can get it all done before Spring is over -

Then I also need to get some items listed to start up on eBay tonight. OH.. I added a BUNCH of craft items to my eBay store.  Some older new items, and some very brand new items that I just got in. :0) Link is top right if you would like to take a look at all I have for sale right now.

Hope you have a wonderful blessed Sunday -
HUGS and -

What a pretty card, lovely colours and a little bling too! For a nice change we have some sun on our bank holiday weekend in UK. So nice to get out in the garden with a lazy day today. The sentiment on your card is very true too!! Hugs to you,
