Have a sunshiney day!

I sure wish the sun would shine our way! We've had nothing but a lot of rain over the last couple of weeks.  Suppose to be sunny today, so we will see if the weather man is right!

I pulled out another image I have had like forever and has yet to see ink.  With spring here I thought what better time than to colour up Veggiebella.

Doesn't she look good in red? When I decided to colour her I had this DP in mind - it's Basic Grey Offbeat. I think it goes very well with this image.

Well you know the drill, stamped on bella's bestest paper and coloured her  with prismacolour pencils.  Cut her out using an oval s/binder die, left in place and sponged some versamagic sea breeze around her.  Green layer is cut using labels #18 (love this die!). Black border is punched using the SU Scallop Trim border punch.  Also used this sentiment which was cut out with s/binder ribbon tag die.
Finished up with some stitching, ribbon and a bit of glitter.

Don't forget about our challenge this week ladies.  The theme is Flowers! Email Emily your card by Thursday night- you never know this could be your lucky Friday - you could win some Bella bucks!

Thanks for stopping by.

Oh Pauline to have some sunshine and to be able to get in the yard to clean out my flowerbeds would be great! I'm sooo far behind because of the non-stop rain! I haven't even been to a garden centre yet because that would just be a tease! Lol! Your card is wonderful and she looks great in red! :) Tracy
