Today's inspiration is this awesome Bloobel image Broken Heart.
I've teamed her with Several Creative Basics Dies;

Fellow PPCF teamy made the coolest card with pop ups which reminded me;
I've always wanted to try a word pop up card.

I used the top portion of the Basic Cutting Edge Borders I, the had a brainstorm.
I cut another piece and made the cutest circle design.

Well, I'm not sure I'll try a pop up card again anytime soon; I had a blast coloring this Bloobel image.

It's a Make it Crafty weekend

Passionate Papers Creations and Friends are celebrating with 
Make it Crafty this weekend.

Ok, ya'll know I love my MiC.
For this event, we are playing with the Halloween images.
I don't know about you but I think these are the most amazing.

So, jump on over and join us at PPCF

I really wanted to use pencils on her because I find that I get a better blend and definition with so many gorgeous pleats.
I've had this set called Lyra for a bit of time and haven't used it yet.
It was a recommended pencil for a tutorial and has a crayon consistency.
I'm not sure I'm sold on the pencil as the coverage was very difficult but
I really enjoyed coloring Venora. She's got some serious Sass to her.
