Hello friend...

TGIF my friends!

Did you enjoy all of the ATS previews this past week? There certainly is plenty there to get you thinking about spring. :)

I made this card for the CC Designs preview of Potted Lucy but didn't get around to posting it here until today. I wanted to make her bright and colorful just like the flower on her head so Doodlebug was a natural choice for my papers. I colored her hair up in a more vibrant orange than I normally use for hair because I wanted it to look like it was an extension of the blossom hat. For the rest of the scene I used the Four Seasons tree die to cut out some kraft cardstock and stamped it with a wood grain background. Once I had that made Lucy needed a couple of feathered friends to keep her company. All in all I think this is a happy card.

Well, I should really get myself together for the day. 
I'll catch ya on the flip side!

Amy this is so DARN ADORABLE! Oh I want to win the lottery as I now want both of those stamps and the stamp set as well as that tree. Of course mine would not come out half as adorable as yours, but still. :O) I love your coloring as always and I so LOVE how you color your pots. When you get the chance to make a video on how you color the jeans can you show me how to make those gorgeous blue birds? lol... LOVE THIS! Have a wonderful Friday. Hugs, Lisa
