Happiest Hour Heidi


I have another dirty dare combo card for you today. For this card I started with Joannes happiest hour challenge which was an inspiration piece with lots of fun summery colors. I jotted down the colors and went through my dp stash. I have several different ways I organize my dp but what I do with my dp I usually pick up by the sheets at HL or Michaels is seperate them by colors if it has several colors I usually try to put it in with the one Im mostly like to use. This piece of dp it was in pink since there are two shades of pink. So now since I had my colors and Cindys sketch picked out I had to figure out which image I wanted to use and I still had all my new CC design images on my desk and this Heidi image just somehow jumped onto the stamp pad!LOL!! Isnt she a cutie?! I colored her using copics and Im so proud I actually colored her hair blonde! I usually stick with brunettes since I seem to do better with the browns. I added some white gel pen highlights and stickles to her wings. Since this little cutie has wings it also falls under Bonnies flap your wings challenge. After I sponged around the nesties I thought the card still needed something so I decided to take Bev sewing challenge and try to sew around my circle. Now I just really started trying to sew on my cards. I think Ive only done it 2 or 3 times and I tried to tackle sewing in a circle this morning. Wayyyy too early!LOL!! So to cover up the worst of my sewing I added some bridal flowers I colored with copics to match the dp.
Mama and I are counting down the days until CHA!! Hope to see lots of you there!!

Oh she really is cute Shannon! You did a fab job coloring her, especially her hair! Those are great flowers and they match that wonderful DP very well. I have a small sewing machine I bought just for sewing on cards and I haven't even attempted it yet:)) Kudos to u for getting started with it.
