Ipods--and a card.

One of my post prized possessions from the holiday season was a special gift I received from my mum. Now let me tell you, I am SO NOT the bells and whistles kinda gal. I like my gadgets plain and simple. I leave the scary stuff to my husband. Anyways, mum bought us each an i-pod shuffle for Christmas so now we can all listen to our tunes on our own accord. This has actually made for a silent back seat during our trips out of town--AMAZING for our two kiddos! They love choosing their music. And I love listening to mine too especially during a workout or cooking.

So what does this have to do with my card? Well it's what inspired me to use my ipodabella ??? Now ipodabella has been in my possession for a while now and has been screaming for ink. In addition, I dragged out some good friends, my Koh-i-noor woodless pencils. It seems after my Copic purchase I have ignored my pencils. During my craft room organization and purge I found them and decided I would use them. And you will notice I brought out the sewing machine too (thanks GinaK!).

I outlined her using a white pencil to add some dimension. I have to tell you I love kraft paper and colouring--they are meant for each other.

For some reason, I have NEVER considered stamping and colouring one of my Bella's on Kraft paper!! What was I thinking??!! Yours looks fabulous!

Hey Alli!

This is one fun card, and I just love the snip of blue ribbon which goes "so nicely" with her skinny jeans!

Of course, I want all of the new KH sets, but I'm making myself wait a couple of days before ordering, so I can decide which of them I really really want...my way of curbing any impulse buying! Ü

Super cute, Alli! I love how you put her in the oval! (And you can bet I'm getting ALL of Kim's sets! And I can't WAIT!) :)

Awesome card!! I love the look of your coloring on the kraft paper. I may have to pull out my stash and give it a try.

Cute, cute, cute!! I love my iPod too, but some days I still think my portable tape player was the best! :)
Aren't the new Kim Hughes stamps the best? Very cute stuff!! How could you choose, really? :)
