Boots and Beaches

Happy Memorial Day!  I was thrilled to be able to spend the day crafting yesterday, and I got a chance to make something for our new challenge at:

We're sponsored this week by Gingerloft Digi Stamps, and I used Cowboy Boot to make a cute little ATC.  Come play along with us, we're a mixed media challenge blog so you can make whatever you like!

I also managed to make this card for:

So this week's challenge was a photo inspiration:

As soon as I saw the photo, I knew I wanted to use this paper pad from Authentique.  I printed Cheeky Beach onto a light patterned paper and colored her in with my Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I also followed the sketch (although I rotated it) from:

My "stash" item is those little word stickers, I bought 2 small sheets of them on clearance quite a while back and I have been using them sparingly ever since.  But I bought myself a book of similar stickers from Tim Holtz a couple of weeks ago, so that made me feel like I could use the ones I've been hoarding.  LOL

Have a great week, my friends.  Peace.
