Be Mine...

Hi guys.
     I hope that you all had a wonderful New Years Eve.   We had a nice one with the kids and even stayed awake to toast in the new year with them as well.  Got to love that Sparkling Apple cider.  We did have a bottle of Champagne, but one smell and the M&Ms just didn't want to even try it.  lol... I must admit it isn't really my favorite thing in the world either. 
     So, as you can guess today's card is my first Valentine's Day card.  I know it is a tad early for it, but I was just in the mood to color this little lady up and the more I go into it the more I felt like she would make a perfect Valentine ready to go out on the town with her true love.  I also came up with her colors from the echo park paper pad  'Be Mine'  I love the pretty pinks and black together and I even decided to use the front cover of the pad as my sentiment.  I fussy cut it out, pulled out my Eiffel tower die cut from 'My Favorite Things' and added that over the smaller picture on the sentiment.
     I also pulled out my newest Spellbinder and cut out a frame from it so that Princess Rose Red could look like she was coming out of it.  All in all I really love how it came together. 
     Well I am back to work today, so I had better get a on.  I am sure that it is going to be a very busy day, but a fast one as well.  If I am not around for a day or two you'll know that I am working and then coming home only to go to bed.  I am sure that I am going to  be uber tired as when you are not there for a while it does take me a day or two to get back into the groove.  lol.... Not as young as I used to be.  :O)
     I do however want to thank all of my subscribers that I have had forever and to welcome the new ones that have come over and been visiting me lately.  It really makes my day when I come home and read all of your sweet comments.  You all mean the world to me.  I am excited to say that I am almost to 150 subbies.  I think when I finally hit 150  I will have to do some kind of give-a-way.  I really think that would be so much fun. 
     Hope you have a great rest of your week everyone and I will talk at you later.
Hugs, Lisa G

This is gorgeous the silver DP you used to frame this lovely gal! I love the Saturated Canary images, but find all the details hard to color...:(

Thanks for leaving all the sweet comments, you know it makes my day when you visit.

OMGosh!!! I love it, Lisa, it turned out beautiful. Love the spellbinders die you used and the colors are so very pretty :):):)

Gorgeous Lisa, I think that spellbinders frame behind her is an awesome touch! Is it metal? It has such a nice glow and shine. Hope work wasn't too bad but I have to say I am glad to get back into a normal routine again. Have a great weekend!
