These are a few of my favourite things..

TGIF!! I can't wait to just RELAX this weekend. Do nothing with the boy. It's been such a long week and I've no idea why.. it hasn't been much different to any other week! LOL. Who am I kidding?! It's all been go, go, go for Cartolinas! :) Just how I like it. Wish I could spend a little longer in bed every morning though. Hey ho.

 So.. today over at LLLC Inspiration.. we're showing you a few of our favourite things! You guys know what's coming don'tcha?! ;)

Here is Fancy Marci. Coloured in.. you guessed it.. BLUE AND BROWN. Probably my number 1 favourite thing when it comes to sitting and making a card.

Skin - YR000, YR00, E11, R20, R32, R30
Hair - E55, E57, E59
Browns - Cocoa, Henna, Walnut
Blues - Arctic Blue, Sky Blue, Azure

I've used some yummy papers from My Minds Eye - Paris and Co. Fave combo. Ever.  I've distressed the edges of my cardbase, which is also one of my fave things, as the blue was a little bright. As usual, there is some WOC and TRG embellishments on this card, two more of my fave things. I've used two punches on this card, another of my favourite tools when it comes to crafting. They make things so quick and easy.

Oh, and a little stamping, in the form of a Whimsy stamp. What else?! Oh, some doodling.. and an antique bronze charm. I think that just about covers it. I coulda added some liquid pearls and made that my 100th favourite thing, but I couldn't find the damn bottle!! :/

That's all I got for ya today. Hope I manage to meet these outstanding deadlines before tomorrow. Wish me luck. :)
