3-in-1 Josephine!

There are so many challenges I want to do at the moment, but so little time. My only option is to combine a few. This card was made to fit in with 3 the week. I've followed the sketch at Passion for Promarkers & incorporated the love theme. Both Papertake Weekly & Cute Card Thursday have a theme of 'new' & this fits the bill there too.

My image is the love gypsy, Josephine from Kraftin' Kimmie. She actually has a new release this week, but this is from the last one. However, she has seen ink for the first time today, so I hope that counts as new. I bought her just before Xmas as I was fed up with Xmas cards, but of course I was just being greedy. I could have waited as I never got chance to use her (along with a few other cuties!) until now. Another, rather strenuous link to new, is her waistline. My New Years resolution is to lose all the pounds (& a few others too!!) that I've put on over Xmas. OK so I don't want to be quite as skinny as Josephine, but it would not harm me to find my waist again!

I love the vibrancy of the colours on this card. The DPs are Basic Grey, Blush & she is coloured with Promarkers. I added glitter to the love potion, because that is where the magic is!!
Hope everyone has had a good start to the week. Things are thawing out a bit here, though there is still plenty of snow about. I probably won't be around much this week as hubby comes back fron Oz tomorrow & he might expect me to pay him a bit of attention, LOL!
Thanks for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
