White on White for a Queen

If you hear someone screaming, it's me!!!! I have had so much trouble today with my photo editing software. It has caused me to waste sooooooooo much time.

But, I'm here with my card that I usually make on Fridays. It is for the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. It is Rita aka scootsv this week and here is the card I cased. I used different dies mostly for the change. I love white on white and just had to make one.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. Should be 74 degrees and sunshine here in AL tomorrow. I've called someone to help with getting my lawn and flower beds in order. I'm going to let him clean out the beds and put down new pine needles and bark while hubby and I tend to other parts of the yard. Hope to get it in shape early this Spring. I'm hoping with someone else doing the beds I won't get allergies. Fat chance!!

I've pre-scheduled this card for upload.  My sister is visiting and we're having a great time. Of course, we went to a scrapbook store (a really good one) and shopped a lot. We also have gotten in some card making time.

Today, our hostess at CCEE Stampers, Charlene Merrick,  gave the challenge to use pencils only. No markers, no crayons, no reinkers. Use colored pencils to color your image. Yikes! I was wanting to bring out my Copics. But, I got out my Prismacolor pencils. Guess what? This turned out to be fun and was something I had not done in a long time.
I love this geranium image. It  is from Serendipity-Geranium Lg. I will be glad when I have some of those wonderful flowers blooming on my patio. My hubby built me a large planter, about 7 ft., several years ago and I fill it with geraniums, ivy, and whatever. It is always a pleasure to look out of my kitchen and see it.

This is a side opening card, something I rarely make. I added a butterfly, used my rectangle die, and Martha Stewart tag. All finished.

Won't you come over to the CCEE Stampers blog and check out the rest of the talented team's cards and show us your own card using pencils? We would love to have you.
