Hello!
If you are here for the first time welcome!, and also a big welcome to you my loyal followers. I would love to take a minute to express my gratitude for the amazing support I have been receiving on this amazing adventure learning and sharing what I do with all of you since I started out blogging. Just know I wouldn't have come this far if it weren't from the encouragement, inspiration and ongoing loyalty, also know I appreciate each and every one of you.


Today,I would love to share my "Happy happy Birthday" card!! This card is for Troy's mom, she is such a beautiful soul .
I used my new Recollections Cling on Stamps and Recollection flowers from my last haul at Michael's!! Isn't that elephant gorgeous?!!! 
I used a Martha Steward edge punch for the sides and the matching corner punch for the corners. I place pink 1' squares behind each corner.

 I tried my best to color and give it justice but I still cling to the thought maybe I am just not cut out to color but oh boys I find any challenge fun so you will have to watch me eventually morph into a great color-er. (Is that even a word? mmm?)





Have a fantastic day!!!!!

This is really sweet Naomi, and there is nothing wrong with your colouring in, it is beautiful, soft and very well blended - heck you even did shadow. Impressive. Troy's Mum is going to adore her card for her birthday! I'm terribly pleased you blog, as without blogging, our paths wouldn't have met....
Many blessings to you, Troy and Michael. xxx

Oh Naomi, this is spectacular!!! That elephant could not be any more gorgeous than you made her... she is exquisite. Your beautiful heart constantly delivers such marvelous creations... I know Troy's mom will treasure this forever. The entire design and every tiny detail combine to make one fantastic birthday card. This is truly worthy of a special celebration and I am sure she will fawn over every facet. Wonderful work as always, my dear friend. You are a treasure!

Hugs and blessings!

Naomi~Obviously I didn't see this yesterday. I didn't even see an e-mail for it & I always get one. Hmmm... I love this. I'm sure Troy's Mom will love it too. You know that a lot of people color together using Skype. In fact I think that up to 10 people can do that. We could do that sometime if you want. :) Hugs my Friend!~Patti

Definition:
colourer (plural colorers).
One who colours.
Use in a sentence:
With practice Naomi will become a phenomenal colourer. However, she is a good colourer right now, she just lacks confidence.

Now as far as the card goes. AWESOME! I adore that image of the stamp. Your colouring is great and I love that everything is just white, shades of grey (the non-naughty variety) and pink. So classy looking. Oooh and I love that flower too! Well done as always my friend.

Hugs,
Lisa
