Marguerita time!

Well, seeing as how it is still winter I thought maybe everyone would like to have a little taste of some tropical weather so I made a couple of cards with that in mind.



I am not much of a drinker so not sure what type of alcoholic beverages these are but the colors worked for me. I added some glitter to the edges of both images using tearific tape and the fabulous glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle. The instructions for both cards are available in the gallery. Hope these made you feel a little warmer!

Love your coloring Amanda. You made the drinks so lifelike - I'm sorry it's not five o'clock yet!

WOW! Bright fun colors. Your coloring is very pretty too. It is snowing here right now and suppose to snow all day. I am waiting to get the call that my sons school is releasing early. Sending a hug.
