Good morning all!  Seriously Wednesday again?!?!?  Wow - time is just flying by!

StampFairy is sponsoring Creative Inspirations' Swirls and Pearls challenge.

Okay, so here's the scoop:  I was having an issue with my printer (now fixed) and was in a bit of a pickle, so to speak.  So I recycled an old card that I just was NOT happy with and created a new card!  I hope you all like the new card better than the first as well :)

Out with the OLD (using Toby Angel)...

and in with the NEW, with a bit of shabby/vintage:
Card Ingredients:  StampFairy digi;  Bo Bunny papers;  Recollections cardstock;  Copics (E0000, E000, E00, E29, R20, BG000);  Gelly Roll white pen;  Studio G sentiment;  CraftSmart Teal, Chocolate, and Gold inks;  recycled flower;  Making Memories brad;  Martha Stewart Mica tinsel glitter and Crystal glitter;  Recollections pearls.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made Toby for the following challenges:  Simon Says - spots and/or stripes;  Daring Card Makers - color combo;  The Shabby Tearoom - vintage boudoir (colors with a sewing theme);  Sketches by Carly - sketch #47

Please have a great Wednesday and thanks, as always, for coming to visit.

OMW, the old card was gorgeous, but the new card is just amazing. It seems more your style too, for instance I can see it is a "Deanne" card immediately !! Stunning papers, I love it. Annette xx
Hi Deanne!! This is UBER CUTE!! Love your new take with him... the colors, the stitching, it's all wonderful!! I especially ((♥)) him with this sketch, of course I'm a bit partial as Carly's my daughter, lol. Thanks so much for playing at SKETCHES BY CARLY this week!! Good luck!

P.S. That's funny- I cover my blog with smilies like this -> *Ü* teeheee.

I loved the old Toby Angel with all the silver swirls and gemstones, color combo, etc. But your new Toby Angel is beautiful in other ways. Both lovely creations!
