I could use some Serentiy Now!

German Phrase of the Day: Ja, ich habe gestern ein Paar neue Schuhe gekauft. = Yes, I bought a new pair of shoes yesterday. Actually...I didn't, but I wouldn't mind doing so! ;-)

This card shows what I need to be doing...taking lots of deep breaths! I don't know why I decided to schedule every hour of every day for the next 2.5 months (or so it seems) but I have, so I will need to be stopping to take a deep breath every day!

This card is made with the supplies from my January MFT Card Kit from Paper Pretties. I just love this Bo Bunny patterned paper...isn't it pretty? I used it to make her tank top also. For her pants, I used my new Pink Spica glitter pen, so in real life they are NICE and sparkly!! I colored everything else in with my SU! markers...although I didn't do that great a job. I need to improve my marker technique since I usually just turn to my watercolors!

On this detail photo I held the card at an angle so you can see the sparkle of her pants (trousers for you Brits out there...you can stop giggling now!) Aren't these Spica pens just awesome?? They really give your projects a beautiful sheen! I got mine from Christie...I think she'll be carrying them in the Paper Pretties Boutique soon. :-)

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday, and I'll be back tomorrow with my Prettie Wednesday challenge card, to use the masking technique!
