Hanna Challenge and a BONUS

Here is my card for Bev's Hanna Stamps Sketch Challenge. I used "But I Need It" -- I seriously LOVE this set. Maybe it is because I relate. But, our girl Hanna is generous and this card says "for you" because all those bags she has this time are for a dear friend of hers. Awww, what a sweetie! Don't worry, she had LOTS of fun shopping for it all! *giggles* Especially those shoes!!!

The size of the card is 4.25 x 4.25. I wanted to make a bright card, because if you have been following my blog recently, you'll know, I am totally stuck on the bold brights. This color combination reminded me of watermelon. Mmmm. I love summer. It better get here in a hurry too because I am sick of being sick! And I am in AZ, so I know people in other places across the country are even colder and, as hard as it is for me to imagine, probably even more sick . . . of winter!

Stamps: But I Need It - Hanna Stamps Paper: Whisper White, Green Galore, Pink Passion Ink: Memories Black Dye Ink, Green Galore, Pink Passion, Creamy Caramel Accessories: Black dotted organdy, prismacolor pencils (for outlining), black gelly roll, aquapainter, singer sewing machine and pink thread.

So as I was cleaning off my desktop on my laptop (trust me, it totally needed to be done), I found this Hanna card which I don't think I had posted yet. We'll say it came from the Hanna Archives *giggles* - I am sad I forgot to post it! I think it turned out well. Anyway, hope you like it!

Image was colored using prismacolors and gamsol. Ribbons are both from my stash -- pink shimmery organdy and pale purple polka dotted organdy. She has a little swarovski crystal at her waistline, like a belt or something. Her slippers are glittered up with stickles. I absolutely love that sentiment! How seriously true! Take yesterday for an example, I vacuumed my staircases and spent much of the day cleaning and then I had to stay up till like 2 am to get any stamping done and now today I am just pooped. I need to pack for our vacation now though, and clean up the mess my kids already made this morning -- stickers on the coffee table, papers all over the living room and breakfast mess -- *sigh* It never ends! Hope you have a Happy Easter weekend and hopefully I will see you back on my site after the holidays!!!
