Sweetie Pie is here again..


Hi Peeps

I'm here today with my card for the new Challenge at All Dressed Up....  our theme this time is 'USE YOUR FAVOURITE IMAGE'......  so that gave me a dilemma....  just HOW to choose??

All of Wendy's images are wonderful... and my favourite tends to change to whichever one I'm currently colouring....  but having said that, Sweetie Pie is on my blog banner, so I decided I HAD to use her.  Next problem was HOW to use her in a different way to what I'd already done.  Hmmmmm... I decided Clean and Simple.... and as she looks a trifle sad while she's pondering...  I thought I'd have her looking out of a window, missing her friend!  Hmmmm  a window.... I didn't have!!  So out came my fine-liner, and I doodled a window frame then fussy cut it.  I think it worked, as I then coloured it with my copics to look a bit like wood...  Hope you agree!

Colouring: Copics
Kraft Card
Lil' Inkers Stitched Square Die
PC generated sentiment

So there you go....  hope you like this CAS style..  I think I tend towards that now more than anything fussy....  and I enjoy it more.

Do pop over to the challenge at All Dressed Up..... you can win lovely prizes if you join in.... but remember, you need to use an All Dressed Up image to enter.

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
