Happy Saturday!

Happy Saturday! Hope your weather is as beautiful as ours today!!! I spent the morning down at a local marina with a friend perusing a craft show. She had asked me to make her a couple of cards so I just had to force myself to go to the craft show to deliver them. So tough to be browsing crafters among the sailboats on a sunny morning!

Here is one of the cards I made for her; it is her grand-daughters' third birthday, so I thought this stamp from Two Scoops Rice Design was perfect paired with the SU! Paper Georgia Peach.

I colored the image with my Kohinor pencils, using my Spica Atyou glitter pens for accent on the wings and flower-thingy. I also used Crystal Effects on the flower to give it some texture...almost like a lollipop!

The sketch is pretty close to this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.

Bethany's Elegant WordArt came to the rescue for the inside sentiment! I love this sentiment, so perfect for a three year old little girl! I recolored it in Paintshop to match the pinks in the designer paper.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Oh Lauri! What a dedicated crafter you are to force yourself to make a delivery at a craft show! *wink* I bet your friend is thrilled with her cards, because as always they are fabulous! What a glorious morning to shop and enjoy the beauty surrounding you! Thanks for that peaceful mental picture! Ahhhhhhhhh!
