another beautiful Nouveau Girl to share

good morning, crafty friends...

it's a difficult time for me at the Chateau l'Orange, as we await news from the emergency veterinary clinic about my poor Miss Ophelia. we had a very late night, and unfortunately we had to leave her in Levittown while they continue to run tests. it's serious - i won't go into detail because it's far too saddening and i am about to start my day (at work, trying to keep busy and waiting for the phone call), but if anybody has any positive energy to share, or prayers, or meditations, or anything, i'd be very grateful. i'm sure i'll have news one way or another, within a day or two. i might not be in a very good place, but at least i'll know where things stand.

i do, however, want to welcome you back for another peek at the Nouveau Girls - this one's a beauty (but aren't they all?), and i had fun colouring her up and finding some elegant paper to do her justice. meet Grow:

still working on pleats and how to give them proper accents, but i think it's coming along (ideally, i should watch a video or twenty to see other people's amazing techniques). isn't she a pretty one?

you can buy the three Nouveau Girls sets at right NOW with a dollar off each, and you can hop with us HERE for a chance to win all three sets (be sure to follow all the stops and comment on each one by TONIGHT at midnight EST).

here's what the Grow set looks like:

i didn't use the clouds on this one, but they're making special appearances EVERYWHERE on my cards, so watch for 'em.

i'll be back with some WINNERS from my birthday post at The Odd Girl, but please bear with me - i promise i won't forget. xo
