I'm New Here

Well, not to blogland or crafting -  but its' the name of the new set in Paulette's store at TLC ;)

I'm New Here is a word art set containing the most adorable sentiments you'll find, and this one that I used for my card today is no exception!

I've taken the beaten path with this one - the sentiment is really geared toward a baby image, but when I first read it, my slightly warped sense of humor showed itself.

This gorgeous vintage image was offered as a freebie at TLC and when I first got it, I remember thinking of the song, "The Lady is a Tramp", by Frank Sinatra (one of my all-time faves!!).  If you haven't stopped by TLC in awhile, then you are seriously missing out on tons of amazing free images and sentiments.

Then, after getting and reading this word art, I thought of this very image.  And then kachow.....Magic....and that's the story of how my love connection for image and word art came to be.  I colored her in Copics.  The edges of the image and sentiment were distressed and then inked in Making Memories distress ink.  The swirly paper is actually digi paper from TLC, too, called Grandma's Attic:  a gorgeous set of papers with these fabulous swirls in all different shades -  you really have to check them all out!

Thanks for stopping by today and hoping you'll come back to visit me soon :)

  11. Oh my lord girl you had me laughing out loud at your write up! Good thing I was by myself and the family is all in bed or they'd really be wondering! This card is just stunning! I am totally in love with all the shades of purple you used and those incredible swirls. And aren't we just getting so good at coloring with those copics (o.k....there's no "we" but you certainly are getting good lol). Glad I stopped by to check on you.
