Je vais un court message pour vous rassurer que je suis toujours en vie, *rire*!!!!  Je suis super occupée et on déménage à la fin du mois de mai.  On a acheté une nouvelle maison, on essaie de vendre celle-ci et en plus de tout ça, on va avoir tout les deux de nouvelles positions!  Si vous pouvez le croire, je vais être instructeur de recrues!
A quick post to let you know I'm still alive, lol!!!!  I've been super busy and we are moving at the end of May.  So, we bought a new house, we're trying to sell this one and on top of this, we will both have new position!  If you can believe this, I will be a recruit instructor, as in Full Metal Jacket.
J'ai utilisé des papiers de DCWV qui s'appelent Limoncello.  Je les trouve si beaux et ils sont parfaits pour les cartes masculines (et pas pire pan toute pour les cartes de filles!!!).  J'ai mis quelques pierres et un sentiment que j'ai embossé plusieurs fois pour donner un effet "chip de bingo".  J'ai fini par un beau ruban tenu par des broches.
I used patterned papers from DCWV called Limoncello.  They are so beautiful and perfect for male cards (and not too shabby for girlie cards too!!!).  I added some gems and a sentiment that I embossed with UTEE.  I finished with a ribbon and staples.
J'ai colorié Patch et Puss avec mes Copics et ajouté du Frantage.  Je crois que j'y suis allé un peu fort, il y en a partout!
I coloured Patch and Puss with Copics and added Frantage.  I think I went overboard, it's everywhere.

Brigitte for Kraftin' Kimmie Krafty guest contest

Hi everyone,
Here's my third entry for the Krafty guest designer challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie.  As I mentionned earlier, I was lucky enough to be picked in the Top 10!!!  To continue, we have to make a project with the theme:  Kim loves Pink!  This time, I went for a CAS style card.
Voici ma troisième entrée pour le défi de Kraftin' Kimmie.  Comme je l'ai mentionné plus tôt, j'ai été chanceuse et j'ai été choisi parmi les Top 10 pour une chance d'être designer invitée!!!  Pour continuer le défi, il faut faire un projet avec le thème suivant:  Kim aime le rose!  Cette fois-ci, j'ai fait une carte bien simple.  
I want to start by saying that the picture didn't capture the colour really well.  It's actually pink and not red!  
I die cut the square to put stitches and added the sentiment that came with Brigitte.  To finish it off, I put some plastic pearls.
C'est très simple, j'ai utilisé une découpe pour ajouter les coutures et mis le sentiment qui vient avec Brigitte.  Pour finir le tout, j'ai ajouté des perles de plastique.
I coloured my namesake Brigitte from Kraftin' Kimmie with Copics.  I gave her rosy checks as she's been in her bath for awhile now, lol!!!!  I put clear Viva Perlen on the bubbles.
J'ai colorié Brigitte de Kraftin' Kimmie avec mes Copics.  Je lui ai donné de belle pommettes rouges parce que ça fait un bout de temps qu'elle est dans son bain, *rire*!!!  J'ai mis  du Viva Perlen transparent sur les bulles.
