LPS Sneak Peak #4 and the Wii


My name is Elyssa and I have a problem. I am addicted to the Wii. Since my birthday is Friday and my sister's is Wednesday we got the Wii as a joint gift. I am in love! We have been playing Wii Tennis and Guitar Hero and on Friday I will be opening Wii Fit. Do you guys have it or like it?

This card is going to be for my Mom's Birthday on Saturday (my dad's birthday is Tuesday, weird, I know). It uses Little Paper Shop's set 'Still Hot'. I water colored the main image with my Derwent water-color pencils. It is a lot easier to watercolor an embossed image because the embossing stops the color!! The inside of the card uses a sentiment from the set which says 'Happy Birthday; You're still hot, it just comes in flashes'. How funny is Julia??? 'Mom' is written with the a-z alphabet from LPS. I love it's simple serif design.

I also wanted to remind y'all to enter in DAILY for blog candy!!

Ok, I'm off to game night with my friends.

Ely

Love the card. I don't dare get Wii for my boy because I KNOW I would be on it all the time and there would be no cooking, cleaning or stamping (Oh NO)!

I LUFF my Wii! I've had it for a little over a year and I just can't stop playing it! LOL!

I got the Wii Fit via pre-order on Amazon so I got it this past week. LOVE IT! It is sooo much fun! If you enjoy the sports game, you'll just love the Wii Fit!
