Hi, There!

So glad to have found this challenge site on PaperPlayful.  Love the creativity I saw on the page and the warmth that the site generates! Glad to see you are back and wishing you all good luck!!

 I was drawn to this image from Make It Crafty called April because when I was a little girl all I ever colored were ladies with big eyes, big hair and big lips!  I loved shading all the eyes and putting on the makeup for the cheek blush!  So here I am many decades later still loving to color the big eyed ladies.  There are so many to choose from - check it out if you like that kind of coloring.  Nothing better than to be a child again and lost in the wonderful world of coloring!!  Hope you are doing something today that will give you a smile or two!  Till next time, Big Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

I would like to enter this card for the following challenge:

Crafty Friends Challenge #9 - Anything Goes

Digital Image - "April" from Make It Crafty.  I used my Copic Markers for the coloring part and a die cut from Spellbinders  "Opulent Ovals" to frame her and popped the frame up with foam dots.  She has lots of Wink of Stella in her hair and glossy accents for the eyes.  Of course, a touch of stardust for the ruffle on her dress.  Polka Dot paper from Recollections and flowers and bubbles from my stash.
