Long On Love

Hi everyone! Happy last day of the year! If you go out and do any celebrating tonight, please be careful because there are a lot of crazy people on the roads on New Year's Eve!

I got the news at work yesterday that I wouldn't have to come in to work today, so I'm free today to play and create! I wanted to remind you that today is the last day to get your get well card made for Clyde to be entered into my challenge. I'll announce the winner of the prize tomorrow.

Also, the very talented Rich Davis who is the newest artist to join Squigglefly has very kindly drawn an image for you to use for a get well card and it is being offered as a freebie on the Squigglefly group at Card Universe. Hurry up and get it today though, because it's only there for a short time!

This is a card I made for the ladies at my dentist's office. They all love getting cards from me, and I always try to make one to send my payment in.

(click to enlarge)

I used the cute You're A Weiner image that Robin Willis drew for Squigglefly, except before I printed it I erased the words she had and added my own.

It's colored with copic markers and colored pencils. I punched a folk heart out on the side and then punched the heart again out of some designer paper and then glued the designer paper heart inside the card so it shows through the punched out heart on the front. I then added some pierced holes along the side and the bottom leading to the heart to draw attention to it.

Notice the sparkly collar the dog has on? That is my new spica copic markers. I do like the twinkle they give! Tomorrow Squigglefly will be announcing the new design team! Can't wait to see who it is! Well, enjoy your day and I thank you so much for stopping by!

Yay for no work..I'm headed out to work in a minute and then I'm headed to Kentucky for a weekend wedding with friends.

Love the card but I'm sorry for you...if you have to MAIL payments to your Dentist, that is just way too much seeing him...hope this year is a Dentist Free year for you and I look forward to 2010's sharing of your blog and friendship.

Holly your coloring is seamless. I can't tell where the colored pencils left off and the copic markers began.
That is nice to know because I'm very limited on Copic colors right now.

Happy New Year
