"Made" for Him...

ETA: I've added the "subscribe" feature on the upper-left of my blog. This is for those many emails that have asked if I would add this feature...please let me know, if you do subscribe how it works. I'm "techy-challenged" so I'm not familiar with this format?

Some how with an image like this, I TOTALLY think my hubby will get over the fact that his card is drowning in shades of pink and red! I'm sure this is EXACTLY how all housewives do their chores..NO?? Anyhoo, it's a good laugh for all! I just have to say that Kim over at My Favorite Things is a very sweet and wonderful gal. I'd had some shipping issues with this Maid for You set and then I think it was delayed again in Raleigh due to the snowstorm we'd had. She was very gracious to track it down for me! I'd like to blame it on the postman gawking at such a sight, but I doubt my postLADY was holding it hostage...lol Anyhoo, here are the finished products and I'm thrilled with the outcome. I'm starting to get a better grasp on using my Copic markers. It took me a little longer to learn the shading techniques and layering the colors, but I'm getting there. The floor board looked a little dull for me in all brown so I used my Black Spica Pen to add some lines and nails. The paper is from the Target $ Spot and where I placed my heart brads were some pink hearts on the paper so I used those as my guide. I hadn't intended on putting them there, it's just how the paper cut.
One sassy gal! I just stuck with the same colors but different sketch here. The Heidi Swapp Ghost Heart is from MFT and I colored the back side with my Lipstick Red Copic Maker. You can see it here, but I probably should have let it dry and then added another coat of ink, but it'll do! Also, today is the start of Chinese New Year and I thought I'd share some pics we took this morning before school. Grace wore this outfit last year and it dragged just a tad...not this year! I noticed the sleeves are getting shorter and the pants a little snug {sniff, sniff}. I went and shared a little presentation with her class as well as shared some Chinese candies with her classmates. I always get a kick out of her letting us know that she is "half-Chinese AND Eng-A-lish"...lolHere is my other China Doll, Addison. Lovin' that grin! You wouldn't know that just 20 mins. prior to this pic that she fell and tore her tights and skinned her knee:(
