Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge with a Blog Hop!

Welcome if you have arrived here from the blog hop! If you just happened upon my blog, we, the Jacksonbelle Design Team, are officially welcoming the new DT members with a blog hop today! But first: my challenge card!

This is the sketch, and I altered it a little by making a square card, and making the "blue" layer a little shorter! Here's my take:



I used Pink Paislee papers and an SU! Stamp set called "Love Owl-ways". Regular patterned papers aren't made to be coloured on with Copic markers, but I wanted to add a touch of colour here and there.. I find you just have to work quickly and lightly. The vintage cream ribbon is from PTI and the scallops on the bottom are made with a circle punch and are glued to the back of the main image!

Now it is my *pleasure* to introduce:
Heather Pulvirenti
This is what she had to say: 

My name is Heather Pulvirenti, though most people in the blogosphere know me as Heather P. :) I live in Columbia, MD with my husband Jason, our 4 year old daughter Lindsay, and an assortment of little boogers (aka our cats and dog). Our daughter is a total spitfire, and I just love her to pieces.

I was born in England, and have spent most of my life in the US (in Maryland and Virginia), except for the four years we lived in Canberra, Australia (my mom was career Air Force). I am currently a SAHM, and though I had reservations about this transition, I really love the time I get to spend with my daughter and wouldn't do it any differently given the chance.

Other interesting tidbits... I was a member of the SCS Dirty Dozen in 2009, and am shamelessly addicted to all things 80s, polka dots, and cupcakes! :)
