Pssst... CCMC294, RS#106

So far... so good!  It's the first day of my spring break... and I am on a card making spree!  Our two oldest daughters are on a 'mystery vacation' with my in-laws for a couple days and our youngest is currently napping (knock on wood!).  Love it!  Although I know it can't be like this every day, I do have to do some catch up work in this house sometime!  But for now... I played along with a couple more challenges!  RetroSketches and Create With Connie and Mary.  I haven't had a chance to really play along with many challenges in the last couple months at all, so I am really loving these opportunities!

I turned this sketch on it's side and substituted banner shapes instead of the square shape!  I used one of the images from Summer Afternoon and coloured it in using my markers and a blender pen... and I must say... I love the result.  You may be wondering where the colour black is, well, sometimes when I am at a loss for how to add that in, I use it on the sentiment!  And in this case I also coloured the cart wheels with it.  The whole card is so spring-y looking and fresh.  I used the Pssst... sentiment on the outside and when you open it, it says... 'you make me HAPPY... thank you.'  Don't you think it sort of looks like the little dog has been hiding under the flowers and now is peeking out to say... pssst...  I think so!

Here... take a look...


Thanks for looking!  Hope you enjoyed!
