Soft Pastels at Sassy Cheryl's

This week it was Sassy Judy's turn in the barrel to pick the challenge for the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog and she chose soft pastels. It wouldn't have mattered what the challenge was, because after I know 2 weeks of no challenge card and possibly 3, I was getting a card in the challenge regardless.

I've gotten most of my obligations done(still need to print a few more thank you notes), and I got out to TM early today and got busy. This adorable image from the Sassy Cheryl Digi Store is called Polly and Butterscotch. Do you think he was supposed to be yellow, or do you think butterscotch is a favorite flavor? At any rate, the image is colored with Copics in what is about as pastel as I wanted to go.

The papers are from my scrap box, and the sketch, which is fabulous, is from Sketches by Carly. This card came together so fast, it even surprised me. Now I'm off to get it entered in the challenge and get to work on another challenge card for which I have a 9 p.m. deadline tonight.

Oh and it's GREAT to be back having fun.

  2. Funny. . . .Judy's turn in the barrel. LOVE IT! Oh and as far as if he/she should be yellow. I think that could go either way. I just liked the name Butterscotch.
    This is lovely Shirley, but then again your cards always are. It's beautiful and I love the 'layout'. Super fun!
