Sugar and Spice

It's Tuesday and time for a new challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's .  Dawn is our hostess this week and she wants to see some silliness.  Well pink and blue hair is how Annabelle and Joey got silly this week.  Yep and their Mom is not happy with the new hair dyes.  But they blamed good ole' Dawn so they got off the hook.  Now I won't tell you what their Mom said to Dawn when she called her up..............

Annabelle and Joey are the new twins in Sassy Land.  I had another digi all printed out and ready to color when I saw these two cuties.  On went the breaks with the old digi and full steam ahead I charged with the new one.  The papers are all scraps from my stash.  They came from a pad I bought at Hobby Lobby years ago and I don't remember the name of the manufacturer.  Annabelle and Joey were colored with Copics and then I cut them out and mounted them on a speckled background paper.  I made the speckled paper by spritzing photo paper with Dylusions Ink Sprays.  The colors are Bubble Gum Pink and Calypso Teal.  I freehanded the arrow out of the same paper.  Doily and  gems were from my stash.  The chipboard sentiment is from a very old collection from K&Company.  I have been digging in my stash from my scrapbooking days and finding some  fun things to play with.

I would like to say I was happy with this card, but I am only "OK" with the way it turned out.  I had a whole different idea in my head when I started out, but my brain refused to cooperate.  My heady was all "foggy" inside this weekend.  I couldn't for the life of me concentrate on anything.  Now when that affects my coloring , I know something is really really wrong.  I took some allergy medicine and a good long nap.  When I woke up I was still not up to par, so I went back to bed and woke up the next morning feeling fit as a fiddle. Some of you are contending with white stuff falling from the sky,but I am dealing with yellow stuff falling from the sky.  I really don't know which is worse.

Now it is time for you to pop over to the Sassy Cheryl Challenge Blog and see all the silliness the crafty Sassy Team has come up with for you this week.  Be sure to pop in on their individual pages and leave them some love.  Everyone needs to hear a kind word now and then.  Oh and why you are popping, pop over to Cheryl's store and see all the new bios on the residents of Sassy Land.  Just helping everyone get to know their favorite people a bit better.  Leave Cheryl some comments letting her know what you think.  Did you also know that there is a live chat function in the store now?  Yep a button has been added.  You click on it and you can have a live chat with our Sassy Lady herself.  Go on check it out.  She has nothing better to do than talk to you.  Besides she really really really wants to know your opinions and suggestions.

Happy Crafting
