New Release Tuesday At Bugaboo

A Happy 2nd day of September to you all. September...no way. My granddaughters start back to school today and I will be at their house at 6:15 because the oldest has to be at school at 7 am. Teenagers don't work that way. At least all I have to do is make sure the 10 year old gets dressed, eats and get her to school by 8:30. I'm gonna die. I have to be up and driving to their house by 5:45. Uggg.
But in the meantime over at Bugaboo it is New Release Tuesday and Jodie has this great image for you.  It is perfect for just about any occasion.
For my card today I used papers by Kaisercraft and colored the image with Copics. I made two copies of the image so I could cut the little sunflowers out and pop them up to have a little 3D going on.

And heres a close up for yo   

 And inside....

I hope everyone that is sending little and big ones off to the first day of school tomorrow has a wonderful day.

There is still one week to enter the very first Challenge over at PPINKYDOLLS Challenge Blog, We have had some great entries so far but we would love to see a lot more. You could win 3 PPINKYDOLLS digital images. WooHoo.
I got some time this weekend to do some coloring and just wanted to share . The image I used can be found in the Store, Here. It is time to start thinking about Fall and Halloween. Yipee!
 I colored the image with Copics and tried some gel pens to all some shine in the hair. So the shine doesn't show up in the photos. It looks much better in person.
 I also used Crystal Effects here and there.
 And inside...
So I hope you come and join us and we will be back next week with another challenge.
Have a great week.

New Release Day At Bugaboo

I can't believe that it is the last week of the month already. Time flies when you are having fun. Today is New Release Day at Bugaboo and this week Jodie has given us this darling little one to work with. You can find her at the Bugaboo Store along with a ton of images for every occasion you can think of.
So recently I bought a Silhouette and I am still finding new shapes to cut. So when I found this one I new it would be perfect for an image like this. It frames the little girl just perfectly.  The image itself is colored with Copics and the papers are from a new paper pad from We Are Memory Keepers.
 You can see the image much better here. Have you ever been bitten by a ladybug? I have and it hurts. As big as this one is it could take your nose off,
 The inside of the card. I think the color combination in this paper pad is going to be perfect for fall.
I hope you all have a wonderful day and I hope I will see you soon. Don't forget to head over to the Bugaboo Challenge Blog and see what the Design Team has to share today.
