color me creative challenge time!

woohoo you're seeing me three times in a row this week!

we did our usual trip to petsmart to take care of the kitties there - just two today - little flame point siamese-tabby mixes.  so cute and so lovey!  then tomorrow we are meeting the lady in charge of the kitties at the nearby vet to meet a transport truck carrying newly rescued kitties in from west virginia.  we are going to help get them where they need to be.  poor babies will have been in the truck for four hours :(

tonight i am having a Close To My Heart party - their new cricut cartridge is available!!!  if anyone wants to place an order you can do it online through my party by going to Danielle's website and looking for my name and clicking the join button.  orders can be placed through friday and i would appreciate you joining in!

i have another fun new thing going on!  i am going to join in on my buddy Suzanne Dean's color me creative challenge.  to celebrate i joined in the current challenge - anything goes with a girly twist.

now of course - the main component of the cmc challenges - it's all about coloring!  most of them do the coloring with copics or other alcohol markers but of course i will be the colored pencil girl!  i started by making a background on some pink paper using Silver primary elements and Pink Azalea Silks.

I added some stamped pink flowers and doodled with a black sharpie.  i cut my border from an old book page.

i stamped the house from the M's Place set at SCACD onto a page from the same book and then added some shadow and color with colored pencils.  i am excited to play with the super talented girls over on CMC and really hope all of you will join in too!
