Hello!  It's a totally dreary day today.  What happened to the sunshine?  And it's COLD!  Hoping the weather clears up this week.

Lately I guess I've been in a challenge kind of mood cause I got a card done for TGF's Birthday Celebrations and MarkerPop's Anything Goes

This is the first time I inked up Up Up Bean from TGF.  Well, that was a weird sentence -- 3 ups in a row!  I had a background done in distress ink watercolors but then decided not to use it after I placed her on a white background.  She looked so much better on the plain white since she is so colorful.  Yeah, I don't know why I used all the colors I did but she seems okay with all of them.  Around the border is Lil Inkers stitched rectangle die and the sentiment (heat embossed in gold) is from CC Designs.  Sequins from Doodlebug.

Here's another view.  Totally love her cute look! 

With all the my other hobbies and making just CAS cards, I haven't bought any patterned paper in many months!  I think it might actually be about a year.  I'm kind of happy about that. 

Well, thanks so much for stopping by!

It's starting to feel kind of hot nowadays around here already. Too early! Super cute bean! Love her bright outfit. Neat coloring of the balloons

It was pretty dreary here in So Cal, but a nice kind since we've been having some hot weather. It was a nice change.
Oh she is adorable!! I think I saw this on the Wow'd Me Wednesday over at TGF. Congrats! CAS is perfect for this bright and fun colored image. Awesome!
I've been good, no new patterned paper pads, but I did break down and bought some foiled paper, does that count? lol! Happy Wednesday!

Yes fingers are numb and can't do anything if I can't feel my fingers. Glad you got this card done because it's super duper cute! Love the coloring and the gems.
