Many thanks

 Good morning everyone!
Please check out my Birthday Giveaway HERE
Did you all "Spring Forward" ok?
We're fortunate here in Arizona in that we don't change our clocks!
So no loss of sleep!
Yesterday I made a few thank you cards!
There are some really great challenges out there this week, so I wanted to try some techniques that I'd never done before!
Over at Just Us Girls (JUGS)
The challenge is to create a weathered wood background.
I am in love with weathered wood, and so I got right to work.
Now I think I could use a little more work on this technique, but I wanted to share the card with
you all anyways!
I also paper pieced the fabulous little dress, shoes, and bow from my tiddly inks image,
the rest of her was colored up using my copic markers.

I did love using this fun new weathered wood technique,
and will definitely be trying it again in the near future!
I'm thinking with tea dye and vintage photo distress inks!
