Happy Saturday everyone!!!!
I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! Ours is going rather well! Izzy has been able to go outside and help Jason in the garden. I have discovered that the garden is her and Daddy's personal space and I am not welcome in it! LOL! And Tuxy is having a good ol' time just lounging around! Seriously I went outside to say hi to Jason and the first thing I hear is, "Hi Mommy!" Awww sweet right? Then I hear, "Bye, Mommy! Bye Mommy! Bye Mommy!" Goodness, do you think she wants me to leave or what! LOL!
Boy has she had some great outdoor time as well!! All she wants to do now is go to the park! We have a really nice park that is about a half mile away from our house (too far to walk, unfortunately) so we don't go there too often, but the playground has a rubber floor so it is great for little kids. Well, since it was such a nice day yesterday we decided to take Izzy when Jason got home. Of course when we got there it was brimming over with kids and there was a family there that had a little girl that was about a year older than Izzy. At first she wasn't too sure about the other little girl but pretty soon they were going down the slide together. And by together I mean, the other girl would wait for Izzy to sit down, Izzy to get about half way down Izzy's slide then start down her own! It was too cute! She even called Izzy her new friend about 100 times. Never mind it wasn't until we got into the car to go home that she asked what Izzy's name was! LOL! Ah, kids! Names are such an unimportant thing!
So, I am posting today because for some reason the planets all aligned in my favor today when I was coloring in this image! I mean don't get me wrong, I am usually happy with the way an image turns out but for some reason, today's coloring is as close to what I had in my head as you could get!!!! (Don't you love days like that!) I mean I am not even ashamed to brag about it!! That's right, I think this coloring job turned out good and I am not ashamed to toot my own horn! LOL!!! So that being said here is my card I created using the awesome sketch challenge over at the Stampavie Blog!
First of all isn't the sketch fun!! I love the different layers and elements. And the image! Can you say cuteness!!! I mean seriously!!! So I started this card by coloring up Margaux is Painting by Sarah Kay for Sampavie that I received from my wonderful friend Jessica, using my copics. I then cut her out along with some maroon and teal card stock using my nesties. Following the sketch, I layered on blue, green and maroon card stock along with some DP from SEI. I popped off my main image and added brown rick rack to the top and the bottom. To finish off the card itself, I added three buttons down the side! I am just so, so pleased with this image!!! I can't wait to try to color her up again!!!!
Well thanks for checking in with me today! Don't' forget to grab your blinky over at Pink Cat Studio and gear up for the new release next week!!! Smiles!
