Spring Days

Hmmm, when exactly do morning glories bloom? I remember them growing in New York, twining about a cyclone wire fence we had in our backyard. I loved the blue color of these delicate flowers.
Sooo, here's my Becca Feeken style card. Oh alright, I know I can't even begin to come close to the Queen of Elegant  (and here you might argue that Jeri Jiminez A Touch of Grace, holds that title). Well, a woman can dream, right? So, I used one of those pendant Nesties I had to have...fleur de lis, satin beige ribbon, oval Nesties, ds paper from My Mind's Eye Simply Delightful line and watercolor paper. I colored with some of the few Copics I have. Speaking of Copics. I have abour 40. At $6 each (about), that's $240. YIKES...did I really spend that much on a set of markers? I already had a complete set of SU markers, quite a few Tombos, approximately 75 Prismacolor pencils, plus a nice supply of water color pencils, 3 different sets of pastel chalks, a tray or two of water colors, 40 or so H2Os. Fine! If you must know, I believe I have spent $1000 on color mediums. And I'm starting to feel awful about it. So, I'm done buying Copics. I'll buy refills and nothing more. But, I digress. The sentiment is a wee one from a Hero Arts set, a gem I found in Michaels, and the flower image is CTMH's Treasure Life. Sorry about the messy background of this pic. It was taken on one of my late forays into the night.
Hope you're having a great week.
Hugs & Blessings,
Erica (who refuses to think about all the cute shoes she coulda' had)

WoWzA, this is gorgeous, Erica!! LOVE that beautifully colored image and that pendant!

Yeah, it's pretty scary what we spend on 'tools,' isn't it?!? You think about lost shoes ... I think about lost handbags. Dang, one could have a pretty neat bag for $1,000.00 ...

Morning glories bloom in the late spring/early summer ... they're an annual (but will self-sow), that like it hot and sunny. And that's the story, mornin' glory!!

Wishing you Easter blessings, my friend!!
