Lets try this again...

Ok, I sat down and typed up my entire post then when I hit the publish post button it came up service unavailable. So then I had to log off and of course that cancelled all my babble. Maybe that is someone higher up telling not to ramble on. This is my entry for Kraftin Kimmies challenge this week which is a recipe of 3 colors, 2 papers, 1 ribbon and 1 button. I tried to color her hair similar to the my haircoloring idol Melanie Holtz at http://paperblessingsbymelanie.blogspot.com/ but it isn't quite the same. Not even close really. I need more contrast and less streaky, back to the drawing board. Nonetheless I am still happy with how my card came out. My button is acrylic which I squirted some orange stickles onto, it is much more glittery irl than what it shows here. I am also entering this into Marks Papers challenge as it was his sketch I followed. Now I am off to have a cup of tea and hope my ill friends out there are feeling better. (that means you Elaine and Patty)
