Little C's Weekly Challenge

Hi Friends! It's Little C's Weekly Challenge again and it's a sketch challenge this week!! Whoohoo!! Stop by Little C's for the details of this challenge!! There's a prize to be given out so you've got nothing to lose by playing!!

I used my Sarah Kay image to create this card! I used a color combo that you don't see often: blue and yellow but my designer paper had that combo and I thought it looked nice together. What do you think?

I colored my image using my Copic Markers! There's not much to say about this card. It's actually a very simple card if you think about it. The only embellishment I used for this card is the ribbons but strangely, my card looks a bit busy. I think it's because of the big ribbons, huh!

Anyway check out the fabulous cards created by the Little C's design team:

Jen - Pieces of Me

Rina~ Heartful Stamping

MacKenzie - Midnight Scramper

Heidi - Create - Reach for Something More

Jen C

Jackielou - Bloggin My Pink Artsie World

Margie ~ Oh Bumble is Me

Card Details:

Stamps: Sarah Kay, SU (sentiment)
Paper: Cloud 9 designer paper, SU Tempting turquoise, More Mustard
Ink: Copic Markers
Accessories: Satin Ribbon

Friend Sleep Over

When you were a kid, did you like sleep overs? When I was a kid I was never allowed to have sleep overs or sleep over at any friends home. I always felt like I was missing out on something so I told myself that when I have my own kids, I would allow sleep overs. Well, this weekend, my daughter had her friend sleep over because they had a day off from school because of President's Day.

I grew up with a very strict Asian upbringing and sleep overs were considered inappropriate unless it was a relative sleeping over. I actually felt sad about it. Well, since my daughter was young, I allowed her friends to sleep over if my daughter wanted a friend to come over. My daughter once had a friend who lived across the street from our home in Hawaii that practically lived in our house. Okay. . .that was a bit much but this friend didn't like her life at home so she sort of grew overly attached to us and she would sleep over several times a week until we had a little talk with her. We told her that she couldn't substitute our home to get away from hers. I didn't think that was healthy.

Anyway, pictured is my daughter and her friend from school (not the one aforementioned above. . LOL!). They hung out and watched a movie, played video games, watched YouTube, cooked and ate breakfast together, and they even stayed up until 2:00 in the morning just chit-chatting. I'm glad they had fun!!

Beautiful card Maria! I like the color combo and those big yummy bows!

Sleepovers are the best! We were constantly having them when I was young. Either It seems like either I was at my friend's house or they were at mine. Oh the memories! LOL! Have a great day Maria!

I love the picture as well. Sleepovers were always so much fun as a kid! You were able to eat junk food and talk all night long and giggle not stop! I am sorry to hear that you were unable to experience that but it is nice that you are allowing your daughter too! and it certainly looks like she was enjoying it!
