Softpencil Thursday - Michu's Mom

Good morning and welcome to another Softpencil Thursday! This week we were asked to use the image MICHU'S MOM. It was an OPEN challenge so I decided to make a card. My Mom's birthday will be coming up and MICHU'S MOM is the perfect image to use!

How cool is it that they live in a cupcake house?!? I had so much "decorating" it! I used Liquid Applique and added a little glitter before puffing it up. LOVE how it looks (and feels)!

I really went all girly on this one - even added pearls to the scallop border. I followed Mojo Monday #142 sketch. It's last week's sketch that I never got around to using. I seem to grab my pencils and OMS when coloring Softpencil images - there is something just so relaxing about it.

I think I mentioned I got a cabinet from my dad - pretty sure it's a cabinet that held like blue prints in it. I LOVE it cause I'm able to group items together and get a lot in a drawer. Why am I telling you this? Well when I got it I reorganized my room and found things. This paper is one of them. I found tons of paper pads from years past. Now that I know what I have and am trying to use it...this is some OLD Making Memories paper.

I hope you like my Softpencil creation today. Be sure to stop by the Softpencil blog where Elizabeth has released some awesome background paper and a few other fun images. You can also pick up MICHU'S MOM for yourself! I failed to welcome FINK to the team last week (sorry about that) so want to officially welcome her this week! You can visit her blog as well as the entire team just by clicking on their name on my sidebar.

I want to apologize for not posting. Once again life threw me a little curve ball - I ended up having to go to the Dr. for a few things. I am on antibiotics and am hoping it takes care of this nasty infection I have. I'm still functioning, just a little slower :) Still up - Christmas, new TAC releases (blog hop on Sunday) and my scrapbook layout - so stay tuned!! Thanks so much for visiting and for all your sweet and wonderful comments!! It means the WORLD to me!
