Fun is....

...a ball of yarn, of course! Isn't this the cutest! This card was created using a magnificent illustration by Maurie J Manning, "Mo" of Mo's Digital Pencil too! Want to see all the other fabulous illustrations click HERE and if you want to chat hop over to Mo's group page at Card Universe....there's some fun going on right now!

This little kitty is Sinatra, I colored him with prisma pencils. The papers are SU! celery and perfect plum, DP is from K&co! The gem brads are SU! and the sentiment CG, I 'blinged' the yarn but it's a bit hard to see. Too fun! I won't say who this card is for because they read my blog, shhhh!

Let's look at the challenges that inspired this card!
Color Throwdown~ the colors.
The Corrosive ch.~the sketch.
Lili of the Valley~animals.
Three Clovers~bling
The Pink Elephant~animals.
One Stop Craft ch.~humor

Well, I hope you all had a good week and are looking forward to a fabulous weekend!
We had a serious storm move through late yesterday. We personally only had some heavy rain, but there was flooding and some destruction in a neighboring town! My heart today is set on prayers for friends who have had a rough night and a decision-making morning! "Cast all your cares upon me...for I care for you." (1 Peter 5:7) God is faithful!

Blessings to all who read here!
