A sweet heart!

Hello friends.  I hope you are having a great weekend.  It's another beautiful, sunny and warm day here in Florida.  These aren't the colors I had planned to use when I made this card, but I'm glad I changed my mind and did something a bit different.  The digital image is a beautiful freebie from Sugar Creek Hollow.
I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils, chalks and my clear Stardust pen.  If you look closely you can see that I embellished the heart with approx. 63 tiny pearls and one of the beautiful pearl stick pins, which my sister sent me. I added a dragonfly punch and Prima flowers to the card itself.
 Challenges: 

This is a fun set of Q&A from my friend, Bri's blog.  Feel free to copy it and use it on your blog, if you'd like.

Do you have any pets?
I have a sweet, little Maltese/Yorkie mix dog named Princess, who was a gift from my sister.  My nieces named her Princess and she has lived up to her name.  The household pretty much revolves around her. lol  Most days I watch my grand-dog, Caesar, who is a darling little Lhasa Apso.  They are great company for me.

Name 3 things that are physically close to you.
My laptop, my blanket, the phone.

What's the weather like right now?
Sunny and warm!!!

Have you ever been in a car crash?
Yes, it lead to my becoming disabled.

What time did you wake up this morning?
6:00a.m. because I forgot to turn the weekday alarm off.  Silly me!  But, after convincing the dog that we weren't getting up, I went back to sleep. :)

What was the last movie you saw?
Letters to Juliette.  It was so-so.  I'm glad it was only from the $1 rental box. lol

What does your last text message say?
I don't text.

Have you ever been to a different country?
Yes, I've been to Canada a number of times. It's beautiful!

Do you like sushi?
Haven't tried it.

Where do you buy your groceries?
Publix and Walmart

Have you ever taken medication to help you fall asleep faster?
Yes

Do you have a desktop computer or a laptop?
Laptop

Do you wear contacts or glasses?
Glasses - can't wear contacts.

Tell me something you are planning to do today.
Wrap some packages to mail. Work on some cards.

When was the last time you cried?
I'm not sure.  It was when we watched something touching on tv.

What is your perfect pizza topping?
I can't eat pizza due to food allergies, but I like black olives on it.

Which do you prefer - hamburgers or cheeseburgers?
I have an occasional turkey burger - no cheese.
 
Have you ever had an all-nighter?
Sometimes I'll stay up most of the night laughing and talking with my daughter. :)

What is your eye color?
Hazel. The eye Dr. says I have a perfect ring each of green, blue and brown, but they look green.

Can you taste the difference between (diet) Pepsi and Coke?
Definitely!!! Diet Coke tastes best. :)

Blessings
  • The first rose of the season bloomed on my hubby's rose bushes. Beautiful!
  • We watched the space shuttle launch safely the other day.  A plane load of sky divers jumped at the time of the launch, so that they could watch it from the air.  Wouldn't that be amazing? We had quite a show with the space shuttle and the sky divers. :)
 Have a wonderful day!!!

Inky hugs!
Shelly

I love the bright colors in the photo graph. I have a goose that thinks its a guard dog and is only nice when we take it with us to the lake jet skiing during the summer. Thanks for the words of encouragement on my blog. Hope to see you again.
