Sweetheart Marci ♥

I know this is a little late in the day, but I wanted to wait until the recipient had opened the card before posting it on here.

I still struggle to colour hair, always have done and probably always will, but Marci has wonderful hair and I totally enjoyed colouring her.  (I feel another rubber fetish coming on! )

So...I made the card to give to my lovely hubby on our Wedding Anniversary, yep I know it's not a very masculine card, all delicate and feminine, BUT there is only a minuscule amount of glitter on it and no flowers at all - apart from on the papers - so it's about as masculine as you're going to get from me.
And I love this stamp and was desperate to ink her up :)


Sweetheart Marci is coloured with Distress Inks, mainly the markers.
The gorgeous papers are Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics (the same as in my current candy). You'll be seeing a lot of these papers..I love them all!
Sentiment from PTI, and a die cut heart border.

Thanks for looking - and a very big thank you to my hubby for still being married to me 19 years later!

Love

  18. I could never see that you have trouble coloring hair! It looks beautiful. :) But I agree with you, the hair coloring is what I struggle with too.

    I just love this card, the image is adorable and the matching strip of heart and how you filled it with pink gorgeous paper, its so perfect! Gorgeous work, sweetheart. :)

    Hugs, Anne.

  20. Umm, admitting you have a "rubber fetish" might be more intriguing to Phil then the card! Bwahahaaha! Adorable Marci and I love how you do hair whether you are happy with it or not.
