Hey Everyone!! Happy Tuesday to all of you!! Today is Little C's Weekly Challenge and the debut of the new design team for Little C's!!! Whoohoo!! Scroll down to check out the challenge for this week. . .it's a sketch challenge!! I decided to use my Rachel Ann Miller image to create this card. Isn't she stinkin' cute or what? I colored my image using my Copic Markers and added a bit of Stickles to the flowers.

Check out the fabulous cards by the Little's C's DT:

Hey. . .yesterday I spent the day planting flowers in my back yard. I hope they don't die. LOL!! I'm not very good at taking care of my plants. . .I'll plant them, water them for a few weeks, then I'll forget about them. They always end up dying. Whaa!

I also pruned our papyrus plants. . .they were so ugly and brown because they didn't fair well from the cold weather. I cut them down to stubs but usually they'll grow new branches during the spring. Tomorrow, I'll post a few photos of the flowers I planted and the papyrus stubs. I'm pre-scheduling this post and I didn't have a chance to take pictures of them.


Well, I hope to see y'all playing along in the challenge! We'd love to see your pretty card and good luck!! Maybe you'll be the lucky winner this week!

Paper: K&CO designer paper, SU Not Quite Navy, Sunny Yellow, Tempting Turquoise

Those RAM images are so sweet, but I am putting off ordering any as I don't use all the stamps I do own.

Heather said...

Maria,

This card is so bright and cheery I love the colors you choose and I really like your sketch layout!!! You are always so super creative and I love the coloring you did to!!! So cool, and such a "doable sketch I may have to do this one!!!

I knew you were an RN from your profile page, but I did not know if you worked much or what area you worked in. Our Unit here is a whole Labor/Deliver/Postpartum/Recovery unit we do the whole process and have grower babies and ICU babies but no NICU here.

I have not worked much lately to hard to find a babysitter and we used to have one so I could work a day or two a week, but she quit so I am just a call in who hardly ever gets called!!!
