Happy March 1st! Can you believe that? I feel like we just finished up with Christmas. That's ok though, I am happy that the days are getting longer and the snow that we have gotten lately is just a dusting and not still be on the ground by morning. However it has been pretty COLD the last few days and the WIND omword, you have to love living in the Columbia Basin. lol.... Sorry if you are one of those that is still digging out from all the horrible 'Winter' weather these last few days.
Ok, I am going to get right to my card today as I have been waiting all week to share this one with you all. My awesome friend Amy was nice enough to purchase some Tiddly Inks stamps for me as I don't have a paypal account and I really have been wanting some of these awesome stamps. Thanks so so much Amy! Anyway one of first stamps that I chose was 'Precious', and I just love her. She sure fits her name.
As I have mentioned quite a lot lately I am slowing down my coloring and enjoying the process once again and not worrying so much about getting something done within a set amount of time. So with Precious I felt like coloring and everyone was headed to bed the other night and I just couldn't stop coloring her. I first picked out what papers I thought would go with her and then I colored her to match. (Not my usual way of coloring. lol) I took my time and I really played with her hair, and her skirts and as you can tell by my writing I am super super pleased with how both Precious and her card came together.
After dinner the other night I was getting ready to put my card together when I noticed that one of my furry friends (I won't mention names, Lucy) walked on top of her and got a little spot on her dress. Well, I was so upset but determined to not have to make her over. Instead I just added a little something and now if you didn't know it was there I don't think you can see our accident. lol...
Thanks everyone for all your sweet comments and welcome to my new followers. I always love meeting new people and seeing what everyone is up to.
Well I had better head to bed. Have my half day today and then errands to run with Jerry. I hope you all have a great day. Thanks for all the inspiration that you all give just by what you show us on your blogs and YouTube videos. It truly does make a difference and give me awesome ideas to try out. :O)

TiddlyInks I am entering this card in their challenge
