For this card I took the Tallulah digi image and cropped just the top half of her body with my "Classic Square" Spellbinder to show off her gorgeous hat!! Isn't it fabulous!?! I got all these papers from my box of scraps so I am sorry I don't know any details about them. I added a little ribbon and a bow and finished it off with the perfect sentiment from Create with TLC. Sometimes I just love to go all fru-fru!!
This week at Sassy Cheryl's our theme is "Patriotic". Cheryl has some great new "Americana" images in her shop! I just had to use one of her older images because I just love Cheryl's bears! Aren't they adorable!?!
Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service. I hope we all take a little time out of our day to remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our Country's freedom. May 30th is memorial Day here in The States and I will be celebrating the Holiday at home, probably grilling out and spending time with family.
I know some of you don't live here in The States but we want you to celebrate your Country as well. I do believe a few of the Sassy Gals are doing just that. (I peeked at their cards) So, join in and have fun showing off your Country's colors, past times, history, humorous sides...whatever floats your boat. Hope to see you all in the challenge posts this week.

Oh my goodness...I didn't think I would EVER get this card posted today. I have been trying to post since about 12:00! I have to give my hubby credit. He is actually the one who finally figured out what was going on. Somehow my "cookies" (which I refer to as Chips Ahoy, Oreo, Nutter Butter, etc.) were changed in my computer settings and every time I tried to log into my Blogger dash board all I got was a constant click like it was trying but not quite getting there. After much swearing and lots of chocolate cake, things are much better now!
This is one of the new images released from Just Inklined called "Harold Holiday". You can find him HERE. Isn't he adorable on his scooter!?!

This little cutie reminded me of a nick name my Dad had for my daughter Savannah. When she was a toddler she didn't have much hair so the little hair she had was always in a pony tail on the top of her head like a fountain. She got the nick names "Daisy Head Maisy" and "Top Knot". Funny how stuff like that sticks with you.

I picked "Valerie" and "Tad" to work with for the release. Valerie, because she reminds me of my daughter Savannah. I colored her uniform to match Savannah's travel volleyball team uniform. Tad, because I wanted to make a Graduation card for my nephew Mitchel. I was thinking huh? It was so much fun working with them.

This week's Challenge at Anita Be Stampin is a fabulous color combo challenge. This is my first time working with one of Anita's Fairies and I just loved it. She really has some beautiful fairy digis. I have found another excuse to use glitter!! My bloggie friend Sarah would be proud.
Hope you all can join in on the fn this week. There were some beautiful entries in last weeks sketch challenge so I know this weeks color challenge should bring out some wonderful creations as well! Best of luck!
