Hello everyone!! Today I'm sharing the card I created for the Besties Challenge Site. The challenge this week is to "add an animal". You can use any Bestie that you want and add an animal to your card or you can pick from the selection of Bestie pets. My card today features a Big Eye Big Head Doll holding an adorable Owl!!! I couldn't resist this one... owls are so popular lately and I myself have fallen for them... especially the brightly colored ones. ;-)
I colored her with my Copic markers and used my Spellbinder dies to cut her out and mount her onto some pastel papers I found in my stash.
I hope you take some time and play with these adorable images and definitely enter the challenge!!! Sherry always offers us lots of awesome free digis and I could NEVER grab all the ones I want OR get them all colored and completed so entering can only help YOU gain more FREE images!!
I had a great time coloring this beauty and I know I will use her again and again. There are far to many choices to color her up in! Hee Hee
Thanks for stopping by today and make sure you take a look at what the other DT members shared and stop by and leave them some love on their blogs as well.
Have a great day!!! *HUGS*

Today the Paper Nest design team is showcasing their "Back to School" challenge over on their challenge blog. I was asked to join in and use the "teacher" image. Isn't it cute? Reminds me of my little girl (not so little anymore... she's entering middle school at the end of this month) playing school with her stuffed friends. LOL But.. what's even better than a challenge... You can get this adorable for FREE!!! Yep, that's right... hurry over to the store and grab her up.. HERE!
I colored my image with Copic markers and did a little "dotting" technique on the sweet bear. If you click on my photo you can blow it up and see it a bit better. I love adding texture like this.. it's quick and easy to do. Just use a couple colors and blend with a lighter color.
I did a bit distressing on the edges and added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in "Vintage Photo". The paper pack I used, Simple Stories, "Vintage Bliss", was perfect for a school themed card. I love the soft colors yet vintaged look.
A few flowers and pearls and a quick label tab with a clip finish off my card.
Be sure to stop by the Paper Nest Challenge Blog and join in the fun! The challenge runs through the 16th of August. The winner will receive a fabulous scrapbook bundle from the store!
Thanks for stopping by today and have a fabulous time creating your "back to school" card! *HUGS*

Have you ever wanted PINK hair??? LOL Well I HAVE!!! And honestly I've wanted PURPLE hair! Yeah... what can I say... I have a little bit of the goofy teen still in me! And nothing wrong with that, I imagine. LOL Especially since I haven't acted on it! LOL BUT... I certainly have nothing stopping me when it comes to COLOR images with PINK hair!!! AND... it certainly helped when the CMC Challenge this week was to use pink!!! Woot!!! Head on over to the CMC Challenge site and join in on the fun! You can use any image you want, just use lots of pink in it!!
Our sponsor this challenge is Suzanne Dean, the CMC Site itself, and she is offering up a FREE Copic class to the winner! You don't want to miss out!! I credit ALL my Copic skills learned to Suzanne and her classes!!
My image today is a Saturated Canary, Color Me Wonderful... I certainly tried to do that!! Hee Hee I love all of the Saturated Canary images because they lend themselves to so many different arrays of coloring... antiqued, fun and soft natural coloring as well. I used the Simple Stories, Snap Life, paper, which I adore!! It has so many fun comments and quotes on it and most often I find I don't even need a sentiment. My background paper most often has exactly what I want to say on it.
I hope you join us for the PINK Challenge!! Have fun and use your imagination to venture out!!!
And on that note... we, at CMC, would like to also welcome and introduce to you our newest Design Team members!!!
