Happy Early Birthday Mom and Elaine

Ok, well blogger seems to be having a fit today cause it wouldn't let me export photos into my blog. Took me forever and having to go thru Picasa to do this, anyone else having problems? My card today is for my mom's birthday which is tomorrow but I also want to wish my buddy Elaine a Happy Birthday too cause hers is also tomorrow. My image is a Sugar Nellie and that is in honor of Elaine who is a Sugar Sweetie (I think that is what they call themselves) and because it is the type of image my mom will love. I have to say she is pretty but I am not happy with the hair, is was too yellow, tried to tone it down with some browns but it only made it more golden and I was afraid to keep fussing. My mom was blond as a little girl so I didn't want to change it to entirely brown.

Posted by PicasaPaper is Madeline by Prima, WOC flowers except the blue rose which is Prima and has been glimmer misted. Lace from Elaine for my birthday and some butterflies I punched with a MS punch and then used platinum stickles on and some little rhinestones in the center. I am entering this into the Sugar Nellie challenge which is to use the provided sketch which I absolutely love. That is it from me today, busy busy busy you know!
