Sittin Pretty

Hi there happy Sunday everyone I hope you have had a great weekend...I had an amazing weekend !  I have spent the whole weekend with Suzanne Dean and some great friends it just does not get better than that...if you see that Suzanne is coming to your area do yourself a favor and take her classes you will have lots of fun and she is a wealth of knowledge, and a real sweet lady !  Speaking of Suzanne and her classes we have a new challenge going on at the CMC Copic Challenge Group and this time it is all about "Metallics" Color an image that has something metallic in it! Make it steel, tin, gold, copper, etc! If you don't have an image with metal in it, than make clothing or accessory images metallic! Come on over join in the fun !

I have used a little bucket that I got from my Sis...thanks so much ♥  I  have perched Tilda with Big ribbon up on it you can find her at at 7 kids college fund.   Tilda is colored with copics, her dress is done in R24, 27, 29...the bucket is C1,2,3,5 and 7.  Skin is E00, 000 and I forgot the hair #'s sorry.  I have added stardust stickles to her bow, socks and lace also the little flowers on the bucket.  My papers are digital from Aimee Asher...the artist is Bette Duganitz her "Denim and Scarlett" collection.  The scalloped oval is cut from my wishblade.  I have cut the bucket out and popped it up for deminsion.  Buttons, flowers, ribbons and charms all from my stash.  I used the sketch from Wild Orchid Challenge blog.  Here is a side view.


Just one last picture to share for today

this is Gail, Tab (7kids college fund) Suzanne and myself.....thanks for coming by hope you have a great week and find some time to color....it is good for your soul !
Hugs♥

Glad you enjoyed watching the babies. They are from Decorah Iowa and we have been watching then for quite awhile. So I thought maybe other that do not know about then would love to see then also. It is so interesting when she is feeding the babies and they have grown so much.
