A bright card for a dreary day!!!

After the DRIVE I had today, boy oh boy, did I need to wind down tonight. So wind down I did! I actually made 5 cards. It was one of those White Knuckle Drives this morning!! I opted for the back roads as the radio was citing the dreaded black ice on the highway, but STILL....... by the time I got to work, my knees were a knocking!! Evidently, I got home in one piece because you are here reading my latest rant!!! lol

This card sure brightened up my night. I adore wee Bubs........the most romantic Beaver I know........ actually, I have a Real live beaver story, but it's getting late, so I'll save it for my next Bubs creation!!!!

I used Pink Pirouette, Real Red and some Cerise DP that had retired from SU some time ago. I masked out the log to have it sit in front of the tree and coloured with my Copics....... IS there anything else??? Oh I tried to watercolour the other day and it wasn't pretty. I love that effect too , but evidently have lost my touch. Anyway, I found this little chipboard heart and covered it with some hunky Chunky SU! Glitter............ finished off with the oval punches to showcase the sentiment and a smidgen of red ribbon.

Hope you like it!!

See you tomorrow to show you what else I've been up to!
