Pretty in Pink . . .

Good Evening Bloggers!

While dinner's in the oven and hubby's watching the game, 
I thought I'd share a card with you I created earlier today!

This little cutie is called 'Odd Socks Sallie' (how darn cute is that) and she is a Sherri Baldy 'Bestie' digi image. I've colored her with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and did some fussy cutting with my trusty Fiskars swivel craft knife.  I chose to use my Cheery Lynn Designs step card die for this card so that 'Sallie' could be front & center!!  
A full list of products used will be at the end of this posting.

ONE of my New Year Resolutions is to make more fancy fold cards.  I have the dies & technology ... now I just have to quite taking the easy way out and MAKE THEM!!  They certainly aren't difficult and they pack such a WOW! factor ... I think they'll be a nice addition to my card selections at the Fall Craft Shows.

A few additional challenges:
CMC Copic Challenge - Anything Goes (must use alcohol markers or colored pencils)
Besties Challenge #1 - Summer Fun
My Besties UK - Something New (flower & grass dies)
A Creative Romance - Something New (flower & grass dies)
Crafty Catz - Pretty in Pink
Crafty Hands Challenge #5 - Anything Goes
Digitally 'Sweet' #70 - Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
Sister Act #39 - Anything Goes

* DING *
Ooops there's the timer on the oven!  
Dinner's Ready!
(What's for dinner you ask!)  
Tuna Casserole MINUS the tuna ... 
had some left over ham so I've used it instead.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
