Can You Really Have a Favorite?

That's the question for me today. This week on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog ,we were to create a card using our favorite image. Well I have a whole folder full of favorite images, and if you go check out Sassy Cheryls Store, you'll see just what I'm talking about. I've had this dancer image called Grace for a while, and I've been wanting to use it. Today I have the perfect excuse. This week is my friend, Susan's 60th birthday. She and I go WAYYYYYYYY back. She's the first person I tried to spend the night away from home with. Notice, I said tried. We were in the 2nd grade, and I didn't make it. Her dad had to take me home at 2:30 in the morning. Now she's my line dancing buddy, so she's all about grace.

I colored the image with my Copics and followed a sketch from the Fussy and Friday Challenge Blog. There's a color challenge using purple, green and black on the Digital Delights Challenge blog, and those colors totally appealed to me. Papers are ones I had on hand. The sentiment is from Shannon Hebert. I made the flowers by coloing some sheer ribbon with my copics and then gathering it to make the flower.
It feels good to be back crafting. I've been busy with entertaining and haven't made a card in two weeks. I've really missed it.
Thanks for stopping by.
