Happy, happy, happy...


Hi everyone! It's been a week already since I last posted; yes, I guess that makes me a lazy crafter:(. I had a couple of cards in mind but then I thought spending more outdoor time and less computer and indoor time and I've really enjoyed that. 
It's time for another challenge at Digital Pencil Too and this time I'm the hostess. I chose my challenge themes way ago and tried to keep them simple and approachable. So this week, we have a sketch for you to play with:):


Feel free to interpret it as you wish, just keep in mind the main elements. This is my card:



 And a close-up:
I was looking forward to coloring this gorgeous image by Mo Manning called "Peaches" and was afraid summer ended off before I made a card with this cutie here. Well, I made it...lol! I even took the time to make a paper rose- the big orange one- and, all in all, I really loved making this card. Happy cards are always a joy to make:)
Recipe:
Coloring medium: copics, promarkers, chalks and DI
Embellishments: handmade rose, WOC flowers, ribbons and pins from The Ribbon Girl, WOC metal corner, Martha Stewart butterfly punch with a thik coat of Glamour Dust:), lots of stickles
Sentiment: quote by Mark Twain- freebie from here

Hope many of you will join us for the sketch challenge. What could be easier than pulling out a Mo image (no restrictions here, and God knows there are soooo many to choose from:)) and follow a simple sketch? Look forward to  admire your beautiful creations! Don't forget to go and check the beautiful work of my DT fellows and leave them some love. They've worked hard over the summer for us to provide inspiration despite the vicissitudes, Irene and hurricanes, I'm really proud of them all!

Thank you all so much for coming by today! Wish all the best and quick recovery   to all of you who were hit by Irene last week, you were all in my thoughts and prayers!
Hugs,
