Marvelous Monday's at Shelly's Images

Well, here we are at MONDAY again ... boy those weekends sure fly!!

Today I have EXCITING news to share with you!  Shelly of Shelly's Images has invited me to be a part of her design team!  I met Shelly over on CDAC and her images and her group are just so much fun  ... how could I say no!!  I'm not an OFFICIAL TEAM MEMBER until May 1st but what the heck ... I like getting an early start!  So ... here we go!

 Every Monday over on Shelly's Images Blog, a new image is showcased and on SALE for a limited time.  This event is called Marvelous Mondays!  You'll certainly want to check that out!!  Today we are showcasing the adorable 'Duckling' image and here is my creation . . .

 (click image to enlarge)

 Isn't he just the cutest with the bow around his neck ... all ready for the Easter Parade!!  I actually used all scraps to create this card.  I've been working on Tissue Box Covers lately so have a huge pile of left over dp ... which worked out perfectly here!  My coloring was done with Prismacolor markers for the Duckling and chalks for the sky & grass.  My only embellishments are Kaiser pearls and Michael's yellow satin ribbon.

Please be sure to check out the awesome inspirational creations over on Shelly's Image Blog from the design team ... they are amazing!  I've also listed these lovely ladies on my Design Team Members Page located under the header of my blog.  

 AND, this week we are thrilled to have Cheryl - She Stamps by Cheryl as our Guest Designer.  You'll want to pop over to her blog ... a VERY CREATIVE LADY!!!

Just so you  know ... Besides MARVELOUS MONDAYS, there is also TECHNIQUE TUESDAYS and the TERRIFICALLY THRILLING THURSDAY CHALLENGE available on the blog.  Please come join in the fun ... I'll be looking for you!
