Happy Saturday to you!  The sun isn't out yet and it isn't as warm as the last few days, buy God is so good and I am thankful for all my blessings!  Today I have a card I made for a dear, sweet lady at our church who has been in the hospital.  I'm hoping this card will bless her.  I used a real cutie I've had for a while that I hadn't used yet, called Thank You from Saturated Canary.  Krista gave her away last year on Black Friday if you ordered from her site.  I LOVE her images so placing an order was not difficult!
Isn't she the sweetest thing?  I really do love Krista's images.  She does amazing work!  I colored this cutie with my Prismacolor pencils.  I do love using them.  I color an image and will leave it for an hour or so, come back, do a little here, a little there, leave, come back.  You get the picture.  The colors this week were inspired by the girls over at The Shabby Tea Room.  They have a great photo for inspiration this week.  The colors were a little vintage looking.  Red, robins egg blue, sage green, white.  Very cute.
The DP is MME Penny Lane.  This is a great stack.  I made my banner by hand.  It was kind of fun.  I used an alphabet stamp set from Close to My Heart that has been in my stash forever.  The buttons were also from my stash.
The inside has great DP from the same stack.  But, its kind of plain in there.  Not like my more recent cards.  I'll think the next one needs my over-the-top touches  :)

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

The Shabby Tea Room - Photo Inspiration and Add a Banner
Papertake Weekly Challenge - BINGO I used Buttons, Free and Flowers
Shopping Our Stash - Buttons & Bows
Divas by Design - Distressing

I think that's about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.

Blessings & Hugs
