A Hundred Challenges!
This week's colors are yummy - Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Real Red and Regal Rose. I thought they'd make a nice summery card so I grabbed a cute beach image, it's Mazie at the Beach from Shirley's 2 Girls and I had some fun coloring it. I am in my own little heaven when I'm sitting around pulling papers and markers and glitters so I had a blast putting this card together. I also pulled out some of my favorite embellishments for this one. I love the beach border punch and this twine, I just love the twine and it's perfect for tying on charms (my favorite embellishment ever is charms) I used a flip flop charm this time, my buddy Maddy will have her eye on that. Maddy would wear flip flops all year but this is New Jersey (can you say "brrr"?). So the switch from flip flops to sneakers comes at Thanksgiving, unless it snows first. The changeover can be traumatic, dramatic, or hysterical or any combination. I'd tell you the story of a midnight run to Walmart for
sneakers but it's one of those stories that's only funny if you were there.
