Cherry Cherry Baby...

Hi everyone!
Wow! I've just noticed my followers list has increased to 200! Thank you all for following me and for the lovely words you leave about my cards! 
I went shopping the other day at Mo's Store and found some new releases which are simply fabulous. I really had a hard time choosing a new image to play with for this week's challenge which has a theme of Buttons 'n Bows. 
Eventually I went for  Cherry and I simply fell in love with this cutie and her shy sweet face. I tried to make her look a bit gipsy-like and colored her skin more intensely. She's definitely one of my favorite girl stamps this year.

Salut Iulia,
iti multumesc pentru vizita:)
Ai un blog nemaipomenit, folosesti atatea tehnici si materiale diferite! Ador stampilele pe care le alegi, vesele si cu un pic de magie si imi plac culorile pe care le folosesti. Incet si eu ma indrept spre tehnici si materiale noi, dar momentan sunt in faza quilling. Oare chiar esti in Cluj?

Mette said...

Love this card and the happy feel.

Hugs, Mette

Honey Child, you are with out a doubt, one of the best designers out there. Your coloring is to die for and your design work leaves me speechless and you know me well enough to know that that does not happen very often. Your cards are glorious and I love them!!
