Sample card with the Sugarplums Beach Kit

Hi everybody,

I have just about no time to craft at the moment. I wanted to give the windows on the front side of our house a bit of paint since that paint was getting a bit bad and while doing so found out that the wood underneath the paint was rotting away. Seems like the people we bought this house from a few years back just painted over the woodrot, not other explaination why the would be rotting so bad underneath an intact layer of paint. Anyway, I had to strip away all of the paint and now a carpenter is replacing the damaged wood. When he's done I'll have to paint everything as soon as possible and that has to come before my precious crafting time.

Anyway... I did have some things finished before all this started and so you won't notice that much of it the first week or so and hopefully I will have some time to craft so it won't be that obvious after that first week either. Today's cutie was already on the All That Scraps blog yesterday. She is from the New CC Designs Sugarplums Beach Kit:
Isn't she adorable? She reminds me so much of my pretty little lady Dyanne who has hair that's at least as long and wears it in a braid most of th etime as well. I colored the image with Copic Markers and instead of using my normal E11, E00, E000 and E0000 for her skin I also used some E13 to create a little tan on this lovely little lady. When I had the card done I still wasn't satisfied so last Sunday I took my three kids to the beach and we collected see shells, the kids loved it and mum loved it too :). Here is a close up of the pretty little lady, all 3D paper pieced like I always do.
Sorry no little pieces this time, completely forgot to take a picture again. Still hope you like this cutie though. The papers are at least two years old because I used these on birthday invites for Dyanne's 6th birthday, I have no idea what the line was. The pretty flower is by Prima Marketing as are the pretty genie stones. The lace, jute ribbon, string and pearl beads are from stash. In case people wonder how to glue these things on a card, I used Olba Glue for these as well, it's the same glue I use for my 3D and it's the best there is for these kinds of things, these shells and beads won't go anywhere. It's available in the USA through Whimsy Stamps, you can find it HERE.
