The Great Outdoors

This week the very talented Miss Jeni set the challenge on the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog with a theme of the Great Outdoors. Since so many of Cheryl's images are outside doing something, I'm thinking the hard part of the challenge is narrowing the image down to just one. You really need to check out all of Sassy Cheryls fabulous images HERE. She has all manner of bears, bunnies, snowmen as well as regular folks frolicking around outside.

For my image, I've chosen "Nature Lover", because I think she looks just a bit nosey with that magnifying glass. She screams EXPLORE to me, and I hope I'm always willing to learn and try new things and not let fear of failure or of the unknown stop me from going bravely forth. I've always been a daredevil, and I've got the scars to prove it. My cute little girl is colored with a bunch of Copics(I think I used half my stash).

The paper is from a free digital kit called Happy Mother's Day by Summer Driggs. I love these rose, aqua, olive and brown colors together. The sentiment is one I created myself in Photoshop and have it below if you would like to use it. Again I don't know whether the click and enlarge button works, but you can e-mail me if it doesn't and you would like to have it to use.
One card down and one to go and some Crawfish Etouffee to fix before I get to the second card. Thanks for stopping by.
