My Favorite Challenges Thursday!!

Hey everyone, are you as ready for the weekend as I am?? What is it about the week that makes it DRAG on and the weekend goes by so quick you blink and it is Monday frustrating!! I know it is twice as long, but still...can't it go by a LITTLE slower?? On that note, how on EARTH did it get to be July already?? Geezzzz...

Anywho, today the new My Favorite Challenges are announced, and I am LOVING them!! This week's sketch is another SUPERFAB one from Cindy. I started with the SUPER cute new Catch Some Rays set. I stamped my girl on an MFT Perfect Panel and colored her in with my Copics. I then paper pieced the umbrella using some Pink Flamingo DSP, and popped it up over her head. the colors I layered her with are Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise and Regal Rose. I added some SU Regal Rose ribbon,and added my sentiment panel. It was punched out using my SU punches. I love that DSP in the background, makes me think of the sun shining down!!
My next card was made for this week's My Favorite Challenge. This week's theme is a Child Theme...and we were given two different Inspiration pieces! I chose THIS one from Pottery Barn Kids. Isn't that the cutest towel?? I love it, and I think my nieces would love it too!! I stamped my Isabelle Paper Doll on an MFT Perfect panel, along with the fish and her tail. The fish and tail were all colored with Copics and then cut out. I then colored her with my Copics and used my Cuttlebug and Oval Nesties to cut her out. She is layered with Lavender Lace, Tempting Turquoise and Pink Passion. The white Satin ribbon is from SU, and the brads are from Spare Parts. I stamped the sentiment directly on my piece of DCVW Nana's Nursery DP. I glued the fish on separately, and her mermaid body, and then did some piercing around the edges.
Well, that is it for me now!! Be sure to check out the new thread for all the challenge details, and to play along!! Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!!
