A Birthday Wish & Imagination

Oh yay - the sun is out, the sun is out!  It's amazing how different I feel when the sun is not shining.  My favorite part about moving to California is the sunshine - it truly feels good for my mind, body, and soul.  It just rained for 3.5 days, which was the most rain I've seen since moving here over a year ago!  So I was very happy to wake up to sunshine today!  :)

My first card is for the following challenges:

 This was a birthday card I made on commission for a friend's daughter whose first name starts with the letter "M".  The image is from Saturated Canary, and I colored her with ajl, sentiment is from Desert Diva (freebie).  Papers are from My Mind's Eye.  :)  "M" sticker and gemstone brads are from my stash.

And my next card is for the following challenges:

All That Stickles: Firefly
Some Odd Girl (sketch below)

I printed Mad Hatter Kody rather large and then cropped out his body, colored him with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits, along with Stickles in Firefly and Orange Peel.  My papers are from doodlebug design inc. and the tape & text sticker are both from the Tim Holtz idea-ology line.  Peace.
