Time to Get Sentimental

**** Please Enter my Candy By Clicking on the Pic in the Top of My Side Bar - Not Long to Go Now!!!!****

Hi Everyone...

This week at Sentimental Sunday's the theme is: Autumn... but where I am here in the land of Aus - it's just hit spring!! hahaha and so far it has been glorius with the sun and flowers... soon it will start to get a lot warmer, so I'm looking forward to that.

Anyway for my card this week, I've used Winter Marci from La La Land Crafts.  I'm thinking that I will change her name, just for this week, to Autumn Marci... what do you think?? hahaha  Anyway here she is, I hope you love her as much as me:-)

I've been looking at my Magnolia Ink Magazine, not that I can really put it down!!!! Anyway Zoe has done a great tutorial on Light Source, and that's what I have tried to do here, but I still think I'm missing the mark, it's a little beyond me I think!!!! Also in Zoe's tut, I loved the E Copic colours she used to colour her image, so I copied... but I did add some R20 to Marci's cheeky cheeks!!!
