Imagine This Friday: birthday cheer

hi all!

TGIF right?  i know my hubby was sure happy about it when he left this morning!  we don’t have ANYTHING planned for this weekend – they seem to arrive faster than we can plan ahead 😛  of course i have work i hope to get done as always and hollyn has been begging for a trip to IHOP YUM!  I am itching for spring to hit so i can get out in my gardens but we are not quite there yet.  because, you know, i don’t try to fit enough into my day 😛  One thing i am really hoping to accomplish – completion of the course materials for the Colored Pencil 1 Class on Color Me Creative.  I have most of the PDF tutorials written just need to do videos!

my card today OF COURSE features Colored Pencil as well as the Cricut Imagine.  in addition i was inspired by the following challenges:

Outlawz Sketch 4


Outlawz – Sketch 4
Daring Card Makers – Home Baked (handmade embellie)
Stamp Something – Cream and Green
Paper Play – Shades of Green
Creative Card Crew – No Flowers


I wish i had time to do challenges more often the way i used to!

And now – my card:

The card Base is SU certainly celery.  The patterned paper, party hat, ricrack and Panel under my image were all done on the Cricut Imagine with the Yummy cartridge.  Three little Pezabling and some Viva Decor Pearl Pen top it off.

My image is Ruby Wild Sprout from the Greeting Farm – i LOVE the Wild Sprouts and have not inked one up in FOREVAH!  What fun they are to color!  I colored her up with colored pencils (Prismas) and no OMS.  I used Cryogen paper.

Doing skin colors with colored pencil used to give me fits!  it is one of the topics we will cover in the Colored Pencil Class on Color Me Creative.

Pezza saw the card and said this is her (she better not cut that hair again!)

i hope you all have a SUPER weekend!
