Michelle Perkett, Prairie Fairy, Fresh Brewed & Charisma Cards

I can hardly believe it's already Tuesday again!  Gotta take my son to the dentist for a filling today - ouch.  I hate dental work, but I try not to say that in front of the kids so they don't get any pre-conceived ideas about it being negative.  I just happened to have a horrible dentist when I was growing up, and it made an impression on me.  Ugh.

So anyway - being Tuesday, that means it's time for another fun challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio!  This week our challenge theme is "Say it with Die Cuts" - I don't own any die cuts, believe it or not, so I printed out the words "Sweet Dreams" using a die-cut font, and voila - homemade die cuts!  hee hee  Whaddya think? I am also using this for the:

I used Sleepytime Fairy from Michelle's Etsy store, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.

 And while I was using this pretty paper from My Mind's Eye, I decided to make a card for the:
Charisma Cards Challenge - Under the Weather (weather or get well card)


I used one of the adorable Honey images from All That Scraps, and I paper-pieced her cap, bow, bathing suit & flip-flops.  I colored the rest with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits. Buttons are from foof-a-la. Ribbon scraps from SU!
That's all for now!  Peace.
