How Sweet...

Hi there! Happy Friday. I know I am SOOO late, but it was a busy morning. I had my friend's two little ones here and let me tell you, I had forgotten how toddlers keep you on your toes. What fun!

The card I have to share with you today is one I made to participate in a couple of challenges.


The first challenge is DU2D Friday. It's a recipe challenge - 1 ribbon, 2 decorative papers and 3 flowers. The digi-image is Ice Cream Kiki from the new Miss Kiki La Rue collection from CC Designs. I colored her with Copics and Prismascolor pencils. I ribbon is dark blue with white polka dots, the decorative paper is from a mat stack from K&Company and the 3 little flowers are Primas.

The other challenge I'm participating in is Friday Sketchers. This is such a fabulous sketch and so versatile. There was an optional challenge to use orange and blue. The card stock in the background is Apricot Appeal, and apricot is orange lightened with cream. The ribbon is dark blue and Kiki's dress is a very pretty shade of blue.

As for Hollyanne's Friday Feature - with school starting back up this week, she's been a bit preoccupied. I'll get her in the stamp room this weekend. I know you miss seeing my daughter's creations.

Have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for visiting with me today.
