Pen Pals & Pearls...

Hi Friends! It's Monday evening and I have a really fun week coming up. We have some very good friends from Chatanooga, TN, flying into Richmond for a visit. We're all going to don grass skirts and coconut bras and head up to Manassas, VA, to the Jimmy Buffet concert along with about a kabillion other "Parrotheads"!! So, it'll be a short work week for me...and then, on top of that, I've got a 5-day weekend. Wooohoooooo!! Crafting time again!!! hehehe! So here's a cute little Sugar Nellie stamp...made by Elizabeth Bell. I think these little girls are just tooooooo cute!! I used Pretty in Pink from SU and some Neenah white cardstock, then I added DPs from Papermania called "Rose Garden" (this was a gift from my sweet "Mountain Mama" friend in NC). Copics used were: E11, 00, 000, 0000 (skin); R20 (cheeks); G20, 24, 28(leaves in her hair); E19, 15, 11, YR21 & 20 (hair); BG72, 10, 0000 (shirt and hair scarf); R81, 83, 85, RV10, 0000 (pants); R21, 24, 27 (flowers in hair). I also used Prima roses, dotted swiss ribbon & Mikimoto pearls from my stash! I also used my trusty little Cuttlebug and a trellis MS punch.

So...I thought I'd enter this little sweetie into challenge #42 over at Sugar Nellie's Blog HERE. The theme is "pearls" and this fun sketch is from Lillian. Thanks so much for visiting my blog...hope to see you all soon. Pat
