I used this cutest of cute images, one of the newest releases from Sassy Cheryl (actually I'm not sure it is the cutest of them, they're all pretty darn cute!), this is Sweet Little Avery ... don't worry, I didn't stop at one (you know I can't) so the others I picked will be featuring soon. To enter the Sassy Cheryl challenge, all you have to do is use Any SC image... easy-peasy, I'm in! Craft Us Crazy wants us to use our Favourite Stamp Company or Found Inspiration for their challenge; I have several "favourites", Sassy Cheryl is one, so on that basis I'm entering the challenge. I've coloured with Prismacolor Pencils... except the flesh, which I prefer to use Copics for.
I've used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches this time around, I needed a really simple sketch to get away with using the paper I'd chosen, from Kaisercraft's Bubblegum Hills collection - then I used a different sheet, still from the same pad at least, lol.
The pink and blue cardstock is by American Crafts and the buttons, pearls, rhinestones and ribbon are from my stash; meaning I'll be entering the Waste Not Wednesdays challenge. Crafty Sentiments has Spots and or Stripes for their challenge, my paper is spotty and my ribbon is stripy, so I'm entering there. The Crafty Sentiments MONTHLY Challenge is Spring Creations, Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, By the Cute and Girly, Oozak andThe Pink Elephant all have Spring themes so I'm entering those too.
The inside of the card is finished very simply t match the front... I still managed to forget to add the stitching that I used on the front (that's TWICE I've used my sewing machine now!!), never mind it still "fits".
Gem of a Challenge wants us to use Pink Blue and Green - which I have, so I'm in there; Craft Your Days Away has Just for Children and Digital Tuesday has Bugs and Blooms... the little flower and couple of ladybirds may be pushing it a bit, but I'm entering there too.
Papertake Weekly and Creative Craft Challenges both have Anything Goes challenges, no problem entering there, lol.
Well that's it for today, I've got a couple of images coloured up and ready to go - of course NONE of them is the one for my Mothers Day card or my Dad's birthday card (which is on Monday, better get on to that too, lol) I'll be back in a day or so, until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
