Thanks a bunch...

Hola amigas!

Well, the movie was beyond excellent... I laughed, I cried, I was awestruck, I could have watched it again. LOL! We had such a good time in town that time got away from me a bit which is why I didn't have anything to share yesterday. But I am back to work and back on track so hopefully it will be a while before I'm absent here again.

I was cleaning up my desk a bit yesterday and came across this SOG Blossom Fairy digi that I'd printed out ages ago and I really wanted to color her up. She ended up being one of the rare times that I color an image before picking out papers to guide me on a color scheme. But I really just wanted to play around with some purple/pink hair and this is the result, I gotta say that I'm very happy with how Blossom turned out. And because I had a fairy to get on a card I decided to play along in this week's Flutter By challenge which is a great sketch and helped to bring this card together. I could have spent hours searching for the perfect paper to use but because the sketch had that single strip I just grabbed my bag of green scraps and used the first piece that I pulled. Totally sped up the whole creative process and I think it actually works pretty nicely with the coloring.  :)

Alrighty then, I should get a move on with my day.
