CHA Relay Day 2!

If you're here for Tuesday Morning Sketches...
please scroll down to the next post!
Thanks!



Woo hoo...I made it to day TWO of The Greeting Farms CHA Relay! If you missed the first one...I'm so sorry...so far it's been loads of fun! When I saw the new digi after Mer Ian...Charlotte...OMG I just about jumped out my seat at how FREAKIN' CUTE she looked! So when I got her in my inbox...I was ecstatic! I printed her out and colored her and then came back later to put together the card once the kids were home from school and settled in. What fun is this little diva! She reminds me of my adorable and SO SASSY 2 year old niece. She has that "talk to the hand" attitude when she's not having it with you...lol.

Aren't those paper flowers DELISH? I had seen them around being used but always wondered how they were made. Then the AWESOME Mercy made a tutorial on how to make them and so I HAD to make some right away. Thanks Mercy!

Also another THANK YOU to Suzanne Dean and her video tutorial on coloring ethnic skin. My last attempt at African American skin SUCKED. Now Charlotte actually looks like my niece...a Mexican/African American mix. :) Hey...I can also use this card for Copic Creations challenge blog! :D

Ok...I'll let you go now!
