Party Hearty



Hope everyone is having a great Friday - and looking forward to an even better weekend!


This little lady is jumping for joy and celebrating a fabulous birthday! The image is from Art Impressions and I just love it! I used some Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink card stock along with some unknown DP that I had in my stash. The sentiment is from SU Party Hearty. Now, on to the coloring of this little doll.......I'm STILL practicing with my Prisma Pencils and thought I did "ok" on this one. Just trying to get some shading and all that down pat...maybe someday! I added some of those tiny little pearls to the scallop edge and then used some baker's twine on the button.


I'll be entering this into a new challenge site that I found - Art Impressions Stamps (to use punches on your creation - and I used two different SU punches)! I'm very excited about finding this challenge as I love the images from Art Impressions - especially the "oldies but goodies". Could that mean I REALLY am old now!!!!! Um...maybe I'll just say I have old friends instead!


Thanks for stopping by............

Sorry I've been a little MIA lately, Lynn. It's been a crazy month. Just wanted you to know I've been checking in to your blog just the same and I really hope you're feeling better soon. A pinched nerve is no joke.
