Good morning everyone. Yes, it is once again Monday morning. Wow the weekends sure do go fast! Thanks so much to everyone that wished me a Happy Birthday yesterday. I had a ton of Birthday wishes over on face book, and I don't even know how to do that very well. lol....
Anywho today's card is not for me, but for my sister. Her Birthday is June 4th and she has red hair. As kids when she was being mean I would inform her that her hair was not red or strawberry blond, but ORANGE! Man did that make her mad...heehee...I guess in the long run both my sister and my little brother got me back at me for that one... Chris (my Sister) gave me a sweet redheaded nephew almost 22 years ago and Rick (my baby Brother) married an awesome redhead and gave me my youngest redheaded nephew 8 years ago... What can I say I am surrounded! lol...We all make a funny group as both my siblings and their families tend to be on the fairer side and then you have my family with all the dark skin and black hair and black eyes. I love the variety that my Mom and Dad ended up with. After all it is the spice of life.
Wow did I go off topic or what. I must be stalling for Monday morning at work. lol...Ok, I will get with it. I just had to make Chris this little Anya. She is just sooo cute. Chris has three Sons, so she is surrounded by all things male. I try to add a little girly into her life whenever possible. I know she is going to love the bright colors. Bright green is one of her favorite colors. So hopefully she doesn't decide to check out my blog today. If so Happy Birthday Chris! Love you.... I also used the Saturday Sketch over at CA&F for this card. It just worked out so well for it. Have a great Monday everyone. I am out of here. Hugs, Lisa G

Oh she is just so prety and girly!! Your sister will love this!! Too funny about the red hair and your family being all dark headed, with darker skin and eyes!! HAve a wondeful week!!!

P.S. SO sorry I never responded to your this question!!! I forget alot of times, but I don't mean too!! If I ever do again just ask me again!! The curls on the flowers are made from the stems they are attached to. I use the end of a small paint brush(the handle) and I curl it around it then gently pull out!!! Easy and no wait of the stems and it also adds more to look at!!! I am hoping to get a tutorial made up of how I color hair for you.. It will be with pictures though no video!! I just have to find some extra time to do so!!
