Challenge #233

Welcome back!
Are you ready for this week's challenge @
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge?

Challenge #233 ~ Anything Goes
I got you use this wonderful image from Lemon Shortbread. I graduated high school in 86', so I am totally a 80's girl. But at the same time I could picture my oldest granddaughter 'dressing up'. That's why when I saw this sentiment I thought of her.

FTHS Weekly Inspiration

Hello again!
2nd post of the day :)
Welcome to our weekly inspiration post @ From The Heart Stamps.
I had originally meant for this to be a mid-month reminder post, but my husband's grandmother passed away on Sunday. She would have been 96 today.
But....instead I am now taking care of 2 reminders
1) Mid month SOTM reminder for Prickles
When I saw this new image from Faith I couldn't wait to color it up! He is just so gosh darn cute in his lil glasses! When I saw this image I knew which paper pack of mine I wanted to work with on it. The Green Stack 70% recycled stack is very "woodsy" and outdoors like and fit this image so perfectly!
Image: Prickels Says Hello
Paper: DCWV The Green Stack 70% Recycled Paper
Coloring Medium: Copics, Gelly Roll Clear Star pen, atyou Spica Pen 05 Lemon
Other Supplies: Glossy Accents for his glasses, Stampendous "have a great day" stamp, Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables

Now remember - for summer our challenges will run for 2 weeks. So you have until June 29th to join us. We hope you can because we would love to see what you make!

Chic of the Week!!

I was chosen to be the "Chic of the Week" over at
I got the honors because of my Summer Fun card
This was actually my 4th attempt at coloring this wonderful image from Lacy Sunshine. Believe it or not, I was 3/4 of the way thru coloring on my image and my Copics "inked" all over my image.
The first 2 times is was one of my blue markers, then a gray one - UGH!!
But, being chosen makes it all worth while :)
