Two Challenges....Yay Me!!!


As you probably know, I've had less and less time lately to play in my craft room. Summer is always a busy time, especially with covering shifts at work for the lucky gals who are on holiday!! Later on this month though, I'm going to be taking a few days off myself, so hopefully I can catch up a little bit!!

Anyhoooo, with all the busyness...I was so proud of myself when I finished this card this morning and I did two SCS challenges with it!!! Yay me!!

The Limited Supplies challenge for today is to make a card with a summer actitivy theme...well, this sweet TGF image of a little girl singing and playing music in the sunshine fits, I think! Also this week's Sketch Challenge was perfect too!!

So I stamped the image, which I scooped up at The Town Scrapper, on Neenah smooth cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her in with my Copic markers to coordinate with this awesome My Mind's Eye paper. The markers I used are: E00, E11, R20, E21, E25, E27, E29, E33, YR12, YR14 and YR09.

The card base is Chocolate Chip with Tangerine Tango and Apricot Appeal for matting. I added some satin ribbon and attached some flowers with a sparkle brad. The finishing touch was to sparkle up the center of the flower in her hair with my Spica gel pen.



Well, I'm off to work again today and tomorrow...yuck! But I'll be back on Monday with something new!! Have a stampin' good weekend!!!
