He likes me...

... or does he?

Isn't she sweet?  This cutie patootie image is one of the new Hostess sets from The Angel Company.  Love her!  I paired her with the Angelee paper line and created a tall skinny card for a little change of pace.  Me likey.

And finally a little foof!  Why-o-WHY haven't I been reaching for my beautimous ribbons?  And check out the bow.  My wunnerful buddy Michelle McD (yes, MISS Angel of the Year herself) was using a "Bow Easy" contraption last weekend and it caused me to dig mine out this week :)   {psssst... luv u Michelle :)}  Of course I had to rack my brain trying to remember how she did it... I STILL don't think I got it right, but whatever I did worked.

Paper:  Angelee SWIC, Angelee cardstock, & Neenah white cardstock
Other:  Scor-Bug, Angelee Ribbon, MM ivory pearl heart
Copics:  skin:  E000, E00, E11, R02;  hair:  YR23, YR24, E57;  dress:  V93, V95, V99;  flower:  BV20, YR23;  bench:  E53, E57, E59, E71;  grass:  G12, G21, G24, G85

I know I've been MIA lately, but for whatever reason I've got Halloween on the brain.  I DO have several non-Halloweenie images colored up just begging me to finish a freakin' card with one of them... now to just do it :)

OH!  I never even really talked about the fun Angel gathering last weekend.  Good grief.  Had a blast... loads of laughs, a ton of inspiring projects (thanks Heather & Lori!) and did a little coloring, too :)  Can't wait for the next one!

By the way... I've got a couple of spots open for my Hostess Club that starts up in August... lemme know if you want in :)

I'm also going to be starting a separate Copic Marker Club if you would be interested in that.  Since TAC has their own Caboodle sets now, with perfectly picked color trios and matching cardstock, it's THAT much easier to color like nobody's business :)  

A few of us brainstormed last weekend to come up with a great club!  (ok, more of them and less of me, but I was there, dang it!)  I'll be adding a tab at the top of my blog with additional information very soon!  Just plan on getting together 3 people for 3 months or 5 people for 5 months for this fun and easy Copic Club!!  Please check back or, if you want to know now, just email me (see contact info at the top)!

But back to today's card... 
What do you think?
