Fly Girl

Hi everyone. I hope you had a really nice Easter Sunday. Ours was wonderful! The weather couldn't have been tailor made for me any better. It was cloudy and cool just the way I like it. Riley played a little Easter game we call "hide the turtle". She found a turtle on our walk on Saturday and woke up Sunday morning to hunt for him. She found him and promptly hid him again somewhere by our mailbox.

Yesterday was Splitcoast Stampers featured stamper challenge and the card I chose from the gallery was a perfect fit for the new challenge on Squigglefly's blog! I love when that happens! The card I CASEd is this one and I went with her sketch and color scheme. It's the color scheme that fits with the Squigglefly challenge which is "Orange you glad I didn't say banana". You can make a punny card, a card with fruits, or a card with the colors yellow and orange. My card fits the color part!




I used the cute Fly A Kite image by Fawn Palmer. You just gotta love that big grin of hers! She's colored with Copic markers and I used a white gel pen to put dots on her kite. I sponged the edge of the oval with Only Orange ink and then dotted the scallops in the scalloped layer. The sentiment is computer generated.  I added a bit of sparkle to her earrings.

Yesterday was the day I had set aside for crafting.  I got all of my errands run on Saturday so I had the whole day pretty much free.  The problem was my mojo took an Easter holiday and I really scrambling to pull something together!  Once I got this card made though the next couple of cards came more easily.  I was sweatin' it there for aminute though thinking I'd have to just have a no post blog for a week!

I wish you a happy Monday and plenty of mojo to play in Squigglefly's challenge!
