Anything Goes

Thank you, thank you, thank you Mz Sassy Jackie. You've saved my rear with the Anything Goes theme for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog this week. My Weight Watcher Camp starts  tomorrow, and I've been finishing up projects for everyone else, and trying to get ready for my friends arrival. Fortunately for me, I started a card several weeks ago, and after getting the base done, I changed directions. It's been sitting on my table waiting for me to color and image and get it finished. It is also fortunate as I also needed a birthday card for my granddaughter.

The image is called Have You Heard. Wonder just what she's really saying to that Ladybug. This week, I've colored her with Copics. I decided I needed to practice and use my markers.

I used the knife tool in the Silhouette Studio Designer software  to cut the tops off of the tulips and then use them on the card base to make them pop up. Then I cut the whole tulip and placed on top of the cut out tulip. They make the perfect stand for on this easel card.

It's early days, so get busy and get entered in the challenge and a chance to win not one but TWO free images from the Sassy Cheryls Stamp store. I know that some of you prefer rubber to digis, so just to let you know, Sassy Cheryls has gotten into the rubber business.
