CD 93, FTL124 & CCCB40 – Smile!


In light of my recent success at the Color Dare, I decided to play again!  The colors they “dared” us with are Pacific Point, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette!  I snagged this adorable free digi sentiment from my sweet friend Arielle—you can find it here—and the sketch 124 from Clean & Simple:


to make this card:


After discovering that SU markers DO NOT mix well with computer-generated images, we did a retake with some Copics –much better success!  I made a little “bouquet” of hearts as the floral image, which also qualifies this card for the City Crafter Challenge 40, to make your own flowers.  And guess what!  My little punkin had similar colors on yesterday:



This little jacket is SO soft & cuddly…..and check out these pockets:


Too bad she can’t actually stick her hands IN them!   Thanks for visiting today!!
