Thinking of You-ASFOS#40

Since Julia from Little Paper Shop released her adorable digi images, I knew I wanted some!! These girls are just adorable! I have used Kaite Swing for this card, but they are all fabulous, some really cute Easter ones too. So affordable and easy to use. Luckily, I didn't have any issues when coloring with my Copics, I did nothing different than with my Anya & Ian card, but I take it. I made this for Kirsten's teacher as she has been on medical leave for a bit now due to some major back problems. Kirsten really misses her and school just isn't the same without Mrs. Ballance. This is also my entry for this week's A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #40 which is called Shape Shifters. You are to make a card that is something other then a square. I had some of these scallop circle pieces that I had bought from SU a while back and thought they would work perfect. It's so much harder figuring a layout with a circle than it is a square or rectangle!

I drew a line and added some funky grass cause I thought she needed to not look like she was swinging in mid air and didn't really know how to do that. I then just used my SU pastels for the sky and grass around her. The grass I did with my marker looks a bit wonky, maybe I should of just left the line instead...oh well, next time maybe:-)

I did start my organizing project a bit today. I am still in the assembly mode though. Buying everything from Ikea is great, but now I have to put it all together!! I just have one smaller box done so far, I was going to put all my Copics in there, but I think I may have changed my mind. I'll still need it anyway though so it's a good thing it's already assembled. My Expedit unit will probably be the last thing I put together. I will keep you posted and when everything is good to go, I'll post some picts...not the before ones though, it's a disaster in here:-)
Hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous!
