Little & Big

Hi All!  Well, there doesn't ever seem to be a dull moment in this little life of mine.  Some major changes are happening at work- like the beginning training phase of implementing a whole new computer system for the entire hospital where I say I've been busy would be the biggest understatement ever!  I have been coloring images though because that seems to be a sort of therapy for me, it's just taken some time to actually get said images on a card, lol.  But I finally managed to eek out a little time at my desk today and just had to share!  I've been holding onto this image called Secrets from Krista over at Saturated Canary in anticipation of using it for my sisters birthday because it reminds me of when we were little.  With hair and eyes colored to match us each it actually does kind of looks like us...although my sister was all to quick to point out that, besides the obligatory Easter outfits, neither of us were really that into wearing dresses :)  When I saw that the challenge over at the Saturated Canary Challenge blog was to do a clean and simple card I decided to try something new, something I can honestly say I've never done before...I didn't use any design paper!  I'm not really sure that I like it...I love how the image just pops right out at you but I still feel like it's pretty plain.  Oh well, it's always good to try something outside your comfort zone right?  Anyhoo thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look- I hope you enjoy!

OMG I WANT THIS IMAGE! I just bought 2 images from her today and dang it if I shouldn't have bought this one too!! Of course I always think I'll use them and then they sit in my file. This is so super cute and I love that it was all about you and your sister. You actually don't have to add anything to your cards cuz your images are more then enough. hee hee!
