sweetest wishes

Hi!  I almost thought I wouldn't be able to make a card for TGF's first Monday Funday Challenge to use scallops.  But I found some time tonight though I should've actually been cleaning the house and getting ready for my daughter's Lego robotics team to come over to our house for practice.

Anyway, here is my card.  I stuck with something simple and sweet.  This is TGF's Cuddle Anya.  Isn't she super cute?  Love her and her hat and bear.  I used a scalloped square and actually went around and punched holes to give it that eyelet look.  The background is stamped with Hero Arts canvas.  The tree die cut and sentiment is from PTI.

I thought I'd practice my pencil coloring again.  I used my kids' regular color pencils.  Now I think I need to practice the hair.

Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday! 

Thanks for reading!

Hey Eva- indeed this is such a cutie card....
great job on the pencil coloring, I haven't tried this solution yet but I've seen alot of blogger's using them too...Awesome! Like your inter-twine on the scalloped edge, such a great idea...
Have a great crafting weekend!

Cute card! Can't believe you punched all those holes, seems like it would be hard to center them. Very brave, having a bunch of kids running around your house, although hopefully it's not as hectic when they're older.

This is gorgeous, Eva! Love the coloring and the eyelet effect. You make me wanna buy this stamp!

I'm with ya...sometimes I stamp/craft when I should be cleaning. Oh, but it's such a great release!
