Sweet wishes

So my fellow Gleeks, did you get night fever last night? To be honest, I was a bit skeptical about an entire disco night but by the final strut I was won over. Though my most favorite part was seeing Alex from the Glee Project perform. That kid was amazing and just eating it all up. I couldn't help but grin during his entire number with Vocal Adrenaline. :)

Ok, now for today's card. What can I say? It is just a Dandy Lion kind of day. I'm still working my way through the new Kraftin Kimmie flower girls and this little bit o' fluff wished her way right onto my card. She was a lot of fun to color with that downy skirt of hers and all of that crazy hair. I went with a bright and saturated yellow for her locks to kind of represent the dandelion flower before it goes to seed then just used dots of lighter yellows and a bit of that magic E81 to make her look all soft and fuzzy.
Then I got to feeling super crafty and decided to try making some small yo-yos out of tulle rather than fabric. I'm pleased to report that they were just as easy to do and I love how they look like decorative little dandelions down around her feet.

Well, it's going to be another busy one for me so I should really scoot.
