Soft Pencil Tuesday!!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Is everyone here in the USA ready for a fabulous Thanksgiving meal? I get to eat two of them, one with my family (a rare occasion), and one with my husband's family! I am excited, I will also get to see two of my great nephews, which doesn't happen too often, and my 11 year old daughter is looking forward to entertaining her little cousins!

Anyhoo, lets see what Lisa has been doing with her Soft Pencil Images this week!!!! I have been a little under the weather this week, sinus drainage in the back of my throat has given me a sore throat (so much for my tonsils being taken out, haha), and a little bit of dizziness. I have been doing my best to rest as much as possible, but this is why I am so late today with my Soft Pencil post! Please forgive me everyone! We DT members got to work with an adorable new image called "Happy Sailors". I thought this image just screamed out Friendship! I colored the image mostly with my Stampin Up markers, but the sailors hair and rope were colored with a prismacolor marker. I remembered having some button embellishments of a nautical theme in my stash, so I added those to the card. I only wish they were all the same shade of blue, but I love them! I had so much fun with my Navy polka dot paper that I used on last week's image, I had to use it again! Hope you like it!

Next I have a Soft Pencil extra to share with you! I asked Elizabeth if she would make a Fall image of Michu jumping in a pile of leaves, and to my delight, she did, and offered it for free over on the Soft Pencil blog. I am also going to go load it up over on the Splitcoast Stampers website for Elizabeth, so you can pick it up there as well. Just go to the forums link at the top of the home page. If you have any trouble finding it at either location, feel free to click my email link requesting a copy.

Now, I colored the leaves with my Stampin Up Pastels (chalk), and Michu with a prismacolor marker. The strip of card stock is all I have left of that pattern (sniff, sniff) My fabulous friend and fellow DT member Kerry sent it to me. The card stock base is SU Crumb Cake, the rest is from DCWV. The ric rac is unknown from my stash. Of course the brown sticky gems were from Michael's. That sums it up for today!

Now, hop on over to the Soft Pencil blog and store, because they are having a big sale for the month of November, and then after the first of the year, Elizabeth will be opening a brand new store with lots of new images and other products for your crafting endeavors!!!!!!!! We DT members don't even know what all will be new! No fair!!!! I can't wait!!!!

Until next time.....Blessings, Lisa
