Tidy up with Penny's and Saturated Canary!

Oh goodness, it's been awhile since I posted a card!  How are you my friends?  Busy with Christmas?  It's pretty quiet around my place at Christmas time.  Just the Hubby, the pup, and me.  It's okay tho.  

We are having a new challenge at Penny's with the theme "Feminine with a sentiment."  I like that theme.  

A pretty simple card this go using Tidy Up by Saturated Canary.

She was very fun to color.  I hope you like Tidy Up!  And I hope you'll stop by Penny's and take a peek at my teamies work...lovely inspiration!  See you at the challenge!

Merry Christmas hugs,

Well, hello there, my Friends!
A cloudy, blustry day here in Oklahoma...sure looks like fall is on it's way!  Boo hoo, I loove summer!  Oh well, we can cozy up and craft anytime of year, right?  Yay!
Another fortnight gone by so that means it's Lacy Sunshine Challenge time!  This go our theme is "Fall Colors."  I got to work with this darling image, Maddie as Scarecrow:

Isn't she just adorable?  I tell you, once you color one of Lacy Sunshine's images, you are spoiled!  So much fun!  Just did the usual with Maddie, coloring her with Prisma Pencils.  The leaves are also drawn by Heather and can be found in the Digi Bits section of the Lacy Sunshine Store.  I cut several and coated them with Glossy Accents.  They made a great addition, I think!  I hope you like.

I am hoping with all my heart that this finds you doing well.  If not, here are big hugs ((((you)))), so you know I care.  Will see you in a few days.  Until then, take care and happy crafting! 

P.S. Almost forgot- we've added another prize at Lacy Sunshine...we have 2 Random draws now.  One draw for 5 images and one draw for 3 images.  Plus, the Top 3 each get an image of their choice and we a have Guest Designer spot, too!  That makes for a lot of fun!
