Hi, There!

It has been a while for me but I am back.  This is my first post as Guest Designer for Colour Crazy Challenge for the beginning of their challenge on Friday, July 27th.  So excited to be part of this wonderful design team.  Join in on the fun with their challenge but just remember you have to show something colored in your card/project.

Our generous sponsor

I chose two images to use for this July challenge and both are from Polkadoodles  The first one is called Meribelle and you can find it HERE

I decided to make an easel card as I have not done one in quite some time and this image just needed the 6 x 6 card space I gave her to float around in!!!!! LOL

She is just so sweet and I love how her adoring dolphins are gazing at her!!  Polkadoodles has so many wonderful digital images, check them out.
