Spoon Full of Sugar challenge 39

Wow.....new posts 3 days in a row!! That *never* happens!! I must be feeling energetic :)

We never did get that huge snowstorm they predicted, & while that's a relief I know winter is not over for us. While everyone else is making spring & Easter cards, I seem to be stuck on winter cards!!



I was checking out the Spoon Full of Sugar blog yesterday & decided I wanted to play. I always look at it, but I never participate. And like I've mentioned before, I *love* sketch challenges!! Half the work is already done!! I hadn't had a chance to ink up this cutie that I got from my friend Inge, so I decided this was the perfect image to use. I have a gorgeous pad of paper from K&Company that I hadn't broken into yet, so I decided to use one of those. All the papers are 2 sided, so I used 1 side for the background, & the other side for the panel behind the image. I also decided after I colored her, that it was just too bright. So I used white Fun Flock on the "furry" parts of her coat & hat. That muted it a bit, & now I'm happy :) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Limitless Labels.....LOTS of use out of that set!! I added a snowflake covered with Diamond Dust (yes, Anna has moved on to other cute little projects & embellishments, but just like winter images, I seem to still be stuck on her snowflakes) & some snowflake bling in various spots.



You should really hop on over to the Spoon Full of Sugar blog to check out the sketch, & maybe play along!! They have a great prize up for grabs!!

Well, tomorrow I work & Friday my kids have a half day of school, so the posting probably stops here, at least for a few days. I'm still waiting for that new High Hopes rubber, & when it appears in my mailbox I'm pretty sure that wherever you are, you will be able to hear my screams of delight!!

Have a great Wednesday!!
