Kia and Her New Home

Happy Tuesday!  Happy New Year!  Officially  Never imagined 2013 back in 1965! Now did you?

Here we are with Kia, a real cutie-pie from Crafty Sentiments Designs.  That "Kitty on Wall" is from Crafty Sentiments also!  Super background image.  Kia is colored with Prisma Pencils  and is surrounded by die cuts from my BFF- the tree, hearts and flowers in the front.  Really cute add ons.  The ribbon is a new one I found from our local craft store and it is made of burlap and comes in lots of colors.  I find myself using it a lot.  I also added some Glamour Dust to the flowers and tree leaves, the background is made up with water color pencils and pencil strokes of grass.  That's it! Kia was so much fun to color and work into a card.  It looks like the place this sweetheart card is going to, my sister in law who recently moved back to the foothills of California where my husband grew up.  And she loves to garden.


We are having a fantastic New Release Blog Hop soon at CSD.  It will start on January 8th and run to the 10th.  You sure won't want to miss it!  Stop by our Crafty Inspirations Blog, too.  You will be inspired!  Promise!  It's a fun place to go!  We have a sale going on now also.  Stock up!

I don't think this Crafty girl is going to make it to midnight, as I am writing this New Years Eve....nope, haven't had any champagne either!  So I will say goodnight to you all, see you in the morning at Crafty Sentiments Designs!

Would you please point me to a bright spot?  You know, now that I think about it, you are bright spots to me!  Yeah!  Thank you for stopping by!
