The top lollipop

Oy! 

Sorry crafty peeps, I truly had the best intentions of getting a card done and posted this weekend but work kept me busy and I was just plum tired by the time I made it home each night. So I tried not to stress over it because honestly, I have enough other things going on right now that I'm stressing over and I really don't ever want my crafty life to be part of that. 

That's not to say that I didn't enjoy a bit of coloring and craft time but I had to wait for today's review preview on the ATS blog before posting my card. We are reviewing the new Mashi's Muffins from the July release and this sugary sweet chick-a-dee is Lolli Lucy. Doesn't it look like she just stepped off of a Candy Land board? And that hair... it totally brought to mind a cloud of cotton candy so I tried my best to get that look. Confession time... I actually started coloring Lucy back before the previews at the beginning of the month. I got as far as her skin, hair and eyes but when it came time to color her clothes I couldn't find the paper pad that I knew I wanted to pair up with her. You know how much I love matching my colors to my papers so that was a problem. I searched and searched but couldn't find it and then I was traveling to the west side so Lucy kind of got left on my desk until now. Sunday morning I actually remembered exactly where I had put the paper pad, believe me it was a real 'duh!' moment, and the card came together quickly after all that, LOL!

Alrighty, the ATS blog has even more candy cuteness today that you won't want to miss so be sure to check out what my teamies have been creating with these fun new stamps!

I thought you made her hair looked like cotton candy before I even read your post! And I agree, our crafty life should not be in the least stressful. It's where I go to destress!

Her hair looks nice and cotton candy perfect! The right shade and fluffyness! ;) Wonderful colors, nice and bright. Goes really well with the paper you found.
