Lemon Lucy

Good morning everyone - mid week so soon! Well I managed two cards yesterday so I am pleased with my progress if I can do another two today I will be pleased with that because I won't be able to craft again until next week now! I have used another Mayzy Art Image today called Lemon Lucy which was actually a free image from Through the Craftroom Door.

I seem to have a thing for red hair at the moment!  I have coloured her with Copics and some Prisma Pencils as usual.  I have added Glossy Accents to her eyes and the ice cubes in the jug and glass - maybe its a big jug of G and T - in that case hope she doesn't drink it all herself!!  I have matted her onto a Nestie Romantic Rectangle.  The papers are by Nitwit from the Life's Little Lemons Collection as is the sentiment.  The flower is a MFT Dienamic die and the leaf is a Marianne Die as is the border which I have distressed with Scattered Straw DI.  The corner is a Whimsy Die.  The buttons are actually cardstock which I have cut with a Marianne button die that I have had quite a while and then embossed twice with UTEE and the twine is from my stash.  I have followed a sketch from Sketch n Stash - Number 6.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Sketch 'n Stash - Sketch No 6 (Stash - button die, twine, border die)

Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Deep Ocean - Welcome Summer
Jackson's Digital Expressions - Anything Goes
Oldie But A Goodie - Summer Holidays (Stash: twine, button die and border die)
Sassy Cheryl's - Summer
Corrosive Challenge - Summertime Girls
Pile it On - Make Your Own Embellishments (I made the buttons and flower)
Sentimental Sundays - Cute and Girly
Fab 'n Funky - Cute and Girly
Love to Create - Anything Goes

Well that's it from me for today, off to catch up with you all.  Thanks so much for looking please leave a comment so I know you have been and can pay you a visit too!  See you tomorrow - take care xx
