Glisten Bean

I did have this post scheduled for Thursday.. like all my other posts that have managed to go live these past couple days. But because this post was important.. it didn't work. Typical Blogger, huh?
So as a little add on to this post.. goes an apology. Sorry to all the TGF fans who visited my blog to leave a comment on my Glisten Bean post, which was nowhere to be seen. HERE IT IS now.. I don't think the phrase "better late than never" is suitable for this occasion!! LOL.

Today there is a BRAND NEW sister to accompany the adorable Shiny Bean who is also being released on 01/07 .. meet..


Ahhh!! Look at that hair! I know girls who'd DIE to have a fringe (or bangs, as you call them in the US) that thick!! I know I would! <3 I've decided to make a card and a tag using Glisten Bean today.

Here is a soft looking project, using Isabelle papers from First Edition.. and some yummy organza ribbon. Pinks and soft greens and yummyness. I've coloured Glisten Bean with dark brown hair to make her pop off the card and stamped the rest of the image in Pretty in Pink ink from SU!

This card is more bold and bright, and summery! :) Know what? I'm just getting into the swing of these summer projects, but it's very nearly July and that means it's very nearly C-mas time. I ain't even gonna say the word. You all know which C-mas I mean! LOL!!

So for this card I used some scraps of paper from My Minds Eye Mabel collection. I love the bright oranges and the happy patterns. I've coloured her perfect hair using my ProMarkers and FlexMarkers. Some Grey Green, Soft Green and Mint Green.

How's about that then?! You guys found another favourite?! LOL!!

So pleased you could stop by tonight - once again I can only apologise for my lateness!!
