Squigglefly Challenge - Sunny Days

Happy Monday Everyone!
WOW!  Here we are in the last week of June!  Hard to believe!

Today I have a Squigglefly Challenge (SFC2614) creation to share with you and our theme this week is SUNNY DAYS.  But before I share my card with you I just have to give a shout out to our newest team member (I'm sure many of you are familiar with her amazing work) ... Jen Leeflang.  And if you're not familiar with Jen's body of work, check it out on her blog HERE.  I'm sure you'll be inspired!  

Okay back to my challenge card!
I just love the digi images by artist Cheryl Grant Alger and so today I've combined two of her cute images to create this little scene.

The two images I chose are:

I simply brought each image into a blank Word10 document, grouped them together, sized and printed.  I colored my images with Spectrum Noir PENCILS (new to me) then colored the sky and grass with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  Once the sky was colored (TB1) I went back over it with the Blender to wash it out a bit for a more realistic sky.
My sun was created by using a large sponge pod and SU Summer Sun ink.
The sentiment was computer generated.
And the dies I've used are these cute little doggies from the Impression Obsession 'Puppies' #DIE142 set and the grass is Joy! Crafts #6002/0137.

I hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
New themes, new artists, new images ... so much you are missing if you haven't popped over to our challenge blog and store!  We even have some freebies to try before you buy!  Come check it out!
OH and speaking of new artist, we have 3 new artists being debuted with their images in the store beginning July 5th.  Please welcome Tam Hess, Norma Burnell, and Angela Charles. 

Well, that's it for me today ... 
Please stop back tomorrow when I'll have another creation to inspire you using dies from Dies R Us.
Hope to see you then!
