Well howdy my friends and Happy Tuesday to you!  How are y'all doing today?  I'm feeling MUCH better thank goodness and Alexa is at school so she's doing better too. Boy its a nasty bug out there, hope none of you get it---terrible!  Knocked me down for a bit but I HAVE BOUNCED BACK--yay!  Anyone watching the Country Music Awards on Sunday night?  I have to TIVO it since I'll be in AZ but I have threatened my family that if they erase it they are in big dog-doody, LOL.  I cannot wait to see the Zac Brown Band---I am obsessed with them and love them soooo much!  See their awesome video below of my fave song--you will fall in love with their voices too!  Now if we're talking singing talent AND fabulous-cuteness well than I would say Chuck Wicks and Tim McGraw, LOL!  There's something about a country dude in a cowboy hat, boots and who can sing---wooooweeeee, LMBO!  No worries, hubby knows how I feel about that---I'd pop a hat on him if he'd let me, hee hee (wink)!  I KNOW that in his eyes I'm a Victoria Secret model too (wink, wink) so don't ruin the illusion 'kay?

My FAVE Zac Brown Band Song:

Today I'm sharing a fun card I made using a fabulous image by Carmen Medlin for SCACD called "1st Signs of Spring".  Isn't she just gorgeous?  I wanted this card to be super romantic so I piled on the feminine elements, papers and bling!  Spring is for romance, love and flowers right? What better way to express that than with a card--this is perfect for birthdays, wedding showers or just for a friend of course!

My papers are from the fabulous new smaller K&Co paper pad "Julianne"--I love that their prints are now smaller, perfect for cards.  I used a Marianne Designs frame die and then ran it thru with a CB "swiss dots" embossing folder.  The peach cs was run thru a different CB Embossing folder--I love lots of texture.  The green elements were done with newer Marianne Designs dies as well---I love adding them to beautiful flowers like these by Prima.  (Make sure to check out all the new Prima 2011 flowers here, they are GORGEOUS!)  Some pearls finish it off nicely.

Yes this cutie was colored with Copics: YR02,YR00,YR0000/YG99,YG97,YG93/E11,E00,R20/E29,E25,E31.  And then I accented with Stickles on her shoes and dress trims--a gal's gotta have some pretty bling!

And because I'm such an enabler I thought I'd share with you some fabulous new products in stock at SCACD that you MIGHT need, LOL! Now don't blame me if you HAVE to buy some ;)

  3. Your card is beautiful, Suzanne, love it-the colors are perfect!!

    And, that Zac Brown song is great, they are good. I'm also a Lady A fan too, so the show Sunday should be a really good one, with some great music going..... And, I agree, Tim is pretty easy on the eyes.!

  4. Your card is absolutely beautiful Suzanne - we will not talk about your coloring since you are the master teacher so I don't have to tell you "gorgeous coloring job"! Love your design work!!

  5. Beautiful card. Scooped up that paper last week. Love, love, love the song- thanks!

  6. Love those country music awards - they are my superbowl. And Zac Brown band is also a great one - so wish I was in Los Vegas this week. Another beautiful card - love those prima too - I am wondering what kind of envelope it will fit in.
