A Sweet Little Helper!






This is Day #2 of sneak peeks for Anki's Sweethearts new release this Friday, June 12th!

These sweeties are an exclusive line sold @ Susana's Custom Art and Card Design store!


This is Little Helper and so appropriate for my Father's Day card today! My DH is a carpenter, I'm sure he's put up a fence or two in his youth! :)In showcasing this cutie, I was inspired by these challenges...

The Color Throwdown~brocade blue, so saffron, celery and bashful blue. Paper Popsicles~ a 'man' card w/the inside completed. The Res-Q-challenge~ create a card 'honoring ' the letter B (boy, boards), Created by Hand wanted to see Father's Day creations and the Creative Belli challenge~Father's Day and sketch (it was certainly my starting point, but I veered a bit!) I hope you are enjoying these peeks as much as I am bringing them to you!
Have a blessed day!

This is beautiful. The first thing I thought of was "What a perfect image for fathers day" and then I read further, and see that you DID use it for Fathers day! This is just terrific. I love your coloring, and those DP's that you used.
