Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C93

Hello Friends! Happy Saturday! It's Crazy 4 Challenges time again! Gosh, the last time I made a card was on the last C4C . . .I'm seriously slacking when it comes to card making nowadays! Well, luckily if it weren't for C4C. . .I probably would not have made a card!

Well, this week Lynda challenged us again with a fun challenge and this week it's a sketch challenge. I haven't done one of those for quite a while now so it's a nice change! Yay! Be sure to stop by C4C and check out all the lovely cards the crazy gals created this week or stop by their individual blogs:

Shocker! I made a card using a cute image . . .it's been a while. Actually, it's been a while since the last time I used my Copic Markers! Poor markers are drying up from neglect! There was a time when all I did was color images. I would spend hours just coloring . . .I sort of went through a serious burn out and now, it's a struggle for me to color anything! So. . .this card is special to me because I actually colored an image! LOL! I also used my poor neglected TGF stamps. I haven't inked these puppies for over 6 months! I kid you not! Do I miss coloring? Not really. . .for some reason, I started to feel it was so tedious to color but I may be inspired to color again. I go through weird phases. . .I love things to death, then go through a hate phase, but I eventually start to love it again so who knows!

I used my Lil' Inkers die and stamp again! I love the flag die! I think it's my new favorite die! I added a small flower to the banner just so it won't look like it's just floating on the middle of my card and I added the same flower to the bow and to little girl's headband. By the way, the designer papers and card stock on my card are by Stampin' Up, good ole' SU. . .I remember there was a time when I was a SU freak! I still love Stampin Up. . .:)

Anyway. . .not much else is going on with this card. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

So adorable. Yes, indeed, it has been a while since you posted a cutsie card, I'm surprised to hear you don't like colouring. With all the colouring you used to do, I'm surprised. Excellent colouring by the way.
