Create from the Heart

I have a friend who comes over about once a month to use my craft room to work on her scrapbooks.  It's a great time for me to just sit and color and chat!  So, last week while she was here, I colored up this beautiful Saturated Canary image.  Wow, that's a lot of hair!  I really had no idea what to do with it all, since I'm not all that confident in my hair coloring.  But, I think she looks pretty hot!  Haha!

So, I wanted her to be the highlight of the card, so I tried not to use too much color.  I embossed the background and used one of my Copics to color the edges instead of matting on colored paper.  Then, I thought maybe some ribbon and sparkle would add a nice finishing touch.  Needed a sentiment that went with her markers and between the 2 I had picked out, my daughter liked this one best.

I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week... where did the month go?  Seriously, where did the YEAR go??

So many things have happened this year, and although the last few months have been incredibly depressing with the passing of my Dad, I still have so much to be thankful for.

Shortly after my Dad passed, my neighbors brought over a homemade apple pie.  It was so sweet of them and the pie was delicious.  I did give them a thank you card at the time, but I thought of them as I made this simple card this afternoon.
