To you from me...and Willow

Hi everyone, hope you had a great day. Mine's been ok, had to visit the dentist this morning because of two cavities. I am so glad I decided not to get numbed, because I HATE that feeling. It only hurt for a very short time. But I am so glad I got that dentist visit over with!!

Here's a card I made monday and it fits the challenge at the Cupcake craft challenge which is Pearls and swirls. I know you can all see the pearls, the swirls are harder to see, as they are only on the image.



This sweet image is from Whiff of Joy "Willow with cookies". Isn't it just beautiful. I had so much fun coloring it with copics and prismacolor pencils and baby oil. The designer paper is from Basic Grey and the cards stocks are from Stampin Up. I used my janome sew mini sewing machine for some zigzag stitches and Martha Stewart and stampin up punches for flowers and leaves. The full recipe is below.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog today, hope you're having a great day/night!

Ellie.
