Musicals and Coffee....

Well, Saturday is almost over - Get me into Spring break and I end up posting at night instead of the afternoon - lazy, lazy, lazy. (Believe me it's not busy, busy, busy!!!)

This first card has to have the most bizarre colour combination I've done - and I can't give anyone else the "credit" but myself!!!! I wanted the little Shy Bear (from Squigglefly) to have a red 'kerchief in her hair so I had to add the red. I coloured her fur with Saffron and Banana so I used that as the base and ended up with Green Galore as the accent. The challenges for this card include:
365 Cards - Recipe-5x5, 3 circles, 2 squares ribbon & Sentiment
Friday Sketchers - shown in the next image
Saturday Spotlight - Inspirational Coffee

This fabulous debonair frog comes from Meljen's Designs. I've actually used Halloween paper for this...omitting the pieces with skulls and such! Challenges include:
365 Cards - Create a piece with 8 elements that must overlap and be in contact with at least 2 other elements.
OCC - Sketch shown below
F4A5 - from Splitcoast - create a card for your favorite musical. I honestly don't think I could narrow a favorite musical down to just one. I grew up with them. This frog, though represents any musical
with Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire!!!!! Both dashing, debonair dancers!

My final card today is also based on a musical - it's the one I created first. When I saw the challenge I knew that I HAD to create something for the musical Chicago since we're going to go see it tomorrow night. I used the poster for inspiration - since I don't have any stamps/images of barely clad dancers. (Thank Goodness!) My daughter and I went to see Chicago the last time it was here and are looking forward to it again - especially since we'll be sitting a whole lot closer than the farthest seats in

Hears hoping that your Saturday was satisfactory! I love spring - it's 8:15pm and there is still a lot of light in the sky. Now for some rain and greening of the grass!!!!!

Thanks for dropping by!
