Hey Sugar Sugar! ;)

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

Over the weekend I was able to play in a challenge at the SNR site for Digi Day. It was sponsored by Modern Sugar Blvd. I made 2 cards using the images given.

My first card I made with one of my best friends in mind. School starts back up here on Tuesday, so I wanted to send her a 'Back to stamping' card. This digi image was perfect for that! I actually made a teeny tiny card to go on the desk that our crafty cutie is working on. (I added a little message to my friend after I scanned this). For whatever reason my scanner is all catty-whompus and making my colors wash out, so they really are much more vibrant irl. I gotta look into this before much longer.......

anyhow - I painted the woman to look like me, right down to this crazy top I used to have that was bright saffrony yellow with turq. polka dots all over it. Boy was I ever hot stuff when I wore it - or so I thought! ;) The little shimmerz pots are painted with real shimmerz that I keep on my stamping table all the time. The dp is actually on the inside of the card - the scallop border is the edge of the card front. Paper is from Making Memories Vintage Findings collection, flower by Prima.

The next digi just shouted at me to use some Basic Grey papers, so I did - from the Sugared collection, of course! :D I added some pink shimmerz to the balls at the top of the building as well as part of the awning. I used my spica glitter pen to outline the building name, open sign, and hearts. I lightly sponged white craft ink over the curry building to 'whitewash' it. The little decorations above the awning ended up looking like little olive slices once I finished coloring them, but oh well, what is a girl to do?! ;) and by the way, the new SU! in colors go with this BG line VERY WELL!!! (I used the in colors on the card above also. lovin' 'em!!!)

Everyone have a great week! May it be sugar, sugar sweet! (that happens to be one of the ringtones on my phone - I always did have a thing for the Archies! grins!!)

Many of my cards look better in person because my photography skills aren't so good. Your cards look fantastic! I like how you colored the girl to look like you. I tend to reach for dark brown first when I need to color hair because that's what I have, but lately I've been using blond because it's easier to hide my coloring mistakes.
