From the Heart....I Heart Sketches

What a long week.  My laptop's motherboard went.  So I am (im)patiently waiting for tax return so I can get a new laptop.  So now I am using hubby's laptop (my old one) and boy did he have it messed up.  I had to reformat the hard drive.  Only to find out that it hubby's laptop was originally Windows Vista. Memory goes when you get older.  I purchased this laptop just as Windows 7 was coming out and they mailed me a disc for it.  Now if I can only find the disc.  In the meantime I feel like I have been in Computer Hell.  It is running much better now that I have reformatted.  I have my new one picked out...just waiting.

Oh so on to this week's I Heart Sketches.  
Here is this week's sketch...

And here is what I did with it...
I used From the Heart's Meet Anneke.
Everything but her hair is colored with Copic Markers.
This is my first attempt with skin...after using a tutorial.  There are 4 different markers used.
The hair is done with Prismacolor Pencils.  
 The paper is from Micheal's open stock.   
I used Glitter Tape, ribbon and lace from my stash.
The images were matted, and than I added Icicle Stickles.
