Another 'sweetie'.........

Hi there, are you enjoying 'Family Day here in Canada? With the snow we had overnight, this roughly translates to a day stuck inside with 'the family' driving you crazy! LOL

Anyhow, thought I'd hop into blogland with a cute card. I've coloured up a super sweet Lori Boyd image, I've been meaning to get my hands on for quite some time. Her name is Nellie and she's one of the 'Spoonfuls' which you can find at by LORI Designs..............

So, I had a couple of pointers for inspiration on this card...........apart from the fact that the image is ridiculously cute, so how could you not want to colour her up!

Firstly, my local scrapbook store, Two Scrapbook Friends, are running a current card challenge on their forum, to use buttons on you creation. Say no more, although I did dig into a new variety of felt ones, which I picked up at the store last week. They're great to work with and a really great price!

Secondly, I found a sketch online at Karen Giron's Blog, The Sweetest Thing, which I thought would work beautifully
I did 'flip' it, just in case you're confused!

Lastly, and believe me, this was a complete coincidence..........there is another colour challenge currently running over at the Lollipop Shop (home to By LORI Designs), the colour contenders being..................

I had no intention of entering this card, and had already chosen my patterned paper and coloured my image, before I checked out the challenge. Must have received some subliminal messages, cause I seem to have got the colours pretty close. The only thing I had to add was the espresso coloured card stock for matting.

So, the deets very quickly........I coloured with Copic markers, papers are Pixie Liscious from Cosmo Cricket, buttons as previously mentioned, and the 'Sweet' rub-on has been sitting in my stash idea which make!

That's about it for today, but I think I'll be back fairly soon this week, as I have a few things prepped and ready to go.....most unusual for me! I'm also really wanting to get another scrapbook LO done this week, but I guess we'll see.....better not be too optimistic!

Have a great day.
