My First Sarah Kay Images!

OK, I couldn't resist these adorable Sarah Kay images any longer!! And I am so happy I added these to my family of cute kids.

I chose the Country Girl because she reminded me of being a little girl from Iowa with opportunities to spend summers in the country. With spring upon us I just had to go bright with the colors, so I used my Copics lavishly, then added the nearly neon plastic flowers I found at Paper Wishes. After mounting those on the sparkly DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies DP I added this delightfully crazy colorful ribbon. The little embroidered chick adds a touch of Easter to the card. I had so much fun coloring this image and composing the card.



Meet Margaux! This image is very dear to me because I spent many hours standing at an easel back when I was doing oil paintings. Oh, how I miss those days! Taking colors from the DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies DP I colored Margaux with my Copics then spread some blue Shimmerz on her hat and jeans for a touch of glitz. The felt butterflies came from Oriental Trading. The inside verse is from Ralph Waldo Emerson and seemed to be perfect for this card to "My friend". I love these sweet girls and have more colored and ready to grace more cards!

I'm so glad you stopped by! Your comments and input are so important to me and I like visiting your blogs, too. So much talent out there!
