Forever Friends "Pout"

Good Day!
Some of you have a holiday today- I hope you've enjoyed the long weekend!  Our holiday here in the States is May 27th, Memorial Day.  It is to remember our fallen soldiers but the day is also often used to remember all those that have passed on in our lives.  It's a somber day.  The 28th of May is my difficult day, if you would please remember me.

But hey!!!  Right now we have a new Forever Friends Challenge for you!  The theme this fortnight is "Pastels."  We are being sponsored by the incredible "Whoopsi Daisy," with our Forever Friends Favorite sponsor being "Oak Pond Creations."

Oh goodness, pastels was a tough one for me! LOL  Please forgive this layout as I am first, lacking in supplies, and second, not really a pastel person...found that out when making this! LOL 

This Whoopsie Daisy image was so much fun to color, with her billowing dress.

Doesn't she seem to be pouting?  A spoiled Scarlet!

Okay now, you have 2 weeks to make up a Pastels creation and enter it in the Forever Friends fortnightly challenge #61.  We are also having a DT Call!  I'd love to be team mates with you!

A special note of thanks to you who leave me comments each post.  I have your name starred in my mailbox, just waiting for me to get to your blog and see your wonderful makes.  I am so sorry that I haven't been by your blogs yet.  Seems I've been awfully slow lately!  I appreciate you very much.  Thank you to new and old followers, too!

See you at Forever Friends, we are friends, after all!  Wishing you the best week!

Your friend,
If a Bright Spot comes, we are sure to see it through the cold and clouds!

  4. You did a beautiful job with your pastels, Manderly! The colour choice is soft and lovely. I love the violet especially with the pretty yellow to match the papers and flowers. Even the ribbon is gorgeous! The dress is a very pretty design. Your dragonflies are awesome! Your layout works beautifully. The pearls are an added bonus! Beautiful, again, Manderly! You will be in my prayers, especially for the 28th of May. There are more Bright Spots to come! xx Kathy

  5. As soon as I saw your card I thought of Scarlett~I do declare this is one fantastic card! Pastels are tough for me too but you rocked it with your terrific coloring and design! Your comment on my blog made my week! I am your newest follower.


I appreciate that you take the time to tell me you like something I've created...or not like! You help keep me inspired. Every comment has a face and is precious to me. Thank you so very much!
