Emma with her Cool Cap

Here's a card I did of Emma, one of Fred She Said's new designs of her daughter, Isn't she a cutie pie?
I chose this color scheme because I have a pair of Crocs in this lime green color & they are my fav! They are so old and grubby from wearing the for planting, lawn mowing or any other yukky project, but my feet love them! Emma's little pinafore is colored with my Copics, of course, and then I took my Colorless Blender to make some cute Polka Dots on it. I wanted this card to have a Birthday theme so I added the balloons and the cute little birthday tag (tiny presents if you look close) LOL.
I am having shoulder surgery on my right arm Friday, and of course I am right handed. I have a few cards done ahead for my work on the FSS Design Team, so I think I'm good to go. I had better be, I'm thinkin'!
Here's a close-up of Emma, and I see my watermark is NOT showing up. Lord have mercy on me! I have bee working on trying to get this right for a week & no success yet. I have Picasa for photo editing & I can get it on there (so pretty with Edwardian script) and then when I move them to my blog, presto, chango, GONE! Why oh why am I so techo challenged? LOL
