SFC2414 - Summer Coloring Fun

Hello Everyone!  
Can you believe it is mid-June already!  WOW!

It's time for another fun challenge over at Squigglefly and today we're having some SUMMER COLORING FUN by using BLUE or ORANGE (or both) on your card creations.

I chose to create my little summer time scene using an image from Cheryl Grant Alger called 'Maddie's Blue Hat'.  Isn't she cute?  And I just love how that little lady bug is always with her somewhere!  LOL!

I wasn't sure what the 'theme' of my card was going to be but after coloring & matting, I decided it would make a nice 'Friendship' card for someone!  Don't you just LOVE Maddie's blue hat?  I must admit, I'm quite happy with my coloring today!  Even remembered to leave that little 'shine' spot on the toes of her shoes.

I've been on a 'buyer's spree' with dies & these fabulous new embossing folder that are available now so of course I just had to create a scene for Maddie using one of my newest Spellbinder M-bossabilities 'Dotted Flowers' (ES-011) embossing folder and various dies (all will be listed at the end of this post).

A few additional challenges to share in:
Ditzie Digi Design - Anything Goes
Scribble and Scrap - Anything Goes

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun at SQUIGGLEFLY!

Your image is just so cute - I am a SC fan for sure. Love the colors you used and all the fun details you added to make this extra special. Saw the pics you posted of your friends in a more recent post and you are so lucky to still have friends from the past near by that you can connect with and stay connected with. Super fun pictures! Hugz!
