Thank you for stopping by. I wanted to share this card with you today for two reasons. First it was my first attempt at using markers. I'm starting to see more and cards beautifully coloured using Copic Markers and then a light came on. I have Pantone Markers!! Oh my I had them all along stashed away. What a CRIME!! So I blew the dust of them and started colouring.

My Second reason is...I made this card for my friend, I think she's the greatest mom ever (besides my mom) and this image of a little girl and her mom cuddling reminded me so much of Laura that I had to make her a card with this stamp. I even tried to make the hair match!

So here's to Laura, your the best girlfriend.

Love Melyssa

Supplies

Cudding-Rachael Anne Miller (clear stamps)

Christmas in the City-Lizzie Anne Designs

Pattern Paper-Making Memories
