Joy & Esmeralda

Hello Friends!
Happy Wednesday to youAny Bright Spots yet today?  Yep, if we look, I think!  I'll be on the lookout, and you be too, okay?

Joy and Esmeralda...well, I didn't know Esmeralda is a Disney character, number one!  She is categorized under Sassy Studio Designs "Once Upon A Time" so I figured she must be famous.  I Googled her to see if I could find her dress colors, and lo and behold, there she was- a Disney movie!  Her hair color is wrong.  The real Esmeralda has dark hair.  BUT, I did this card for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #116, with my Sister-in-law, Joy, in mind.  It's was her birthday on the 25th, she is very much a joy, and ohhhh, sooooo lively!!!  Yes, a lively, fun one that makes others laugh.  Happy Birthday, Joy!  I love you! xxxooo  You've probably figured out that Sassy Studio Designs is one of our sponsors this week at Penny'sHere is the lively and JOY-ful Esmeralda:

I love that red-checked paper.  I just got a little pack by My Minds Eye...boy, it sure is hard to pull off that first sheet!  Why are we like that? LOL  It's funny.  We get supplies to use then don't want to use them! LOL

Here she is a little closer.  Colored her with Prisma Pencils.  Just happened to have had the butterflies made already and they are colored with Copics.  The die cuts are from Spellbinder's Moroccan set, I think it is.

That's it from me today.  I'll see you again in just a minute as I have one more special Penny's post today. But I will say my goodbyes now- I hope your days are full of sunshine and Bright Spots this whole week!  Oh, please stop by Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge and see my talented Teamies work!  And while you are there, enter your "Use Your Favorite Color" project!  Yes, my favorite color is in my card, and it is in the smallest area colored! LOL

Bye for now!
