My Favorite Colors


Wow, it has been awhile since I have made anything! My life has just been crazy, you know kids....no matter how old they get they can still drive you nuts-0! I think I have spent 90% of the last week just praying for patients and more patients and guidance and just a little patience!!! When your kids are little you think you want them to grow up and then when they are grown up you wish they were little again, ugh, anyone with me on that? Ok, enough whinning from me, on to the card. I used the I.C.S. for this card, and the
Pink Elephant Challenge for my inspiration for this card. My favorite color combo is pink, brown and white, I am such a girl! This is my first time with both of the challenges so I hope not to disappoint!
Have a safe and happy 4th of July. I know I am so blessed to have born in the United States, a very prosperous, free country!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the men and women in the Armed Forces and their family's, because of them we enjoy the freedom we have!

Sincerely,

Stacy

Oh Stacy ~ this is BEAUTIFUL!!! Great job combining the 2 challenges. I love your colors and the way you used the ICS sketch! Your image is adorable and colored so sweetly. I understand, to an extent, what you mean about the kids issue. I am sure we drive our mom more nuts now than we did when we were younger ;). I GET that and totally dread the teen years :) lol .. and so on. Han plans her dreams and told me last night in the car that she was either going to dream about a princess, cats or what her babies are going to look like .. then on into she is having 3 girls and 2 boys all at the same time. she wants one girl to have yellowy blond hair, one to have curly redish brown hair that she will fix like 'this' (shows me with hand motions). One boy she wants to have black hair and one she will fix in a pointed mohawk of sorts and put him in shark swimsuits (so he will look like a shark) It was a cute story and I enjoyed every minute of it .. but at the same time I was thinking .. oh man if that were to happen I would surely die! lol!!!

Anyway ~ Great card my friend! Have a wonderful, blessed and safe holiday!

Love ya!

Heather
