Luv a Latte

Hello friends!  I hope you're having a fun week so far.  Only a couple more days till the weekend ... yeah!  We've been having some beautiful weather here.  Our weather report keeps calling for rain but so far we've been extremely lucky and most of it has missed us.  I am so ready for spring, how about you?  

I have a new card to share with you today.  I used Sugar Nellie's Simply Sassy Luv a Latte today and colored her using my copics and colored pencils.  No glitter or stickles on this one, can you believe it?  I've stitched my papers and added some lace, butterflies and a heart doily.  I stippled my doily with distress inks to tone down the bright white color.  I also added a little distress ink to my butterflies, along with a little pearl on each one.  I made a lace rosette and topped it with a couple of buttons.  I've cut out my sassy girl and popped her up on dimensionals.  You can find my cutie pie and all her sassy friends over at Funky Kits

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.
