'oh Sue, don't be sad' Challenge card

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Truffle (and it's already GONE!!!)

Good morning! What a glorious day! it's overcast, scheduled to rain all day, and I LOVE IT!!!!!! I love the rain!!! what a wonderful aroma the earth takes on as the rain hits the pavement and the grass........ oh I could just breathe it in all the time..... that and coffee and the smell of bacon and fresh cookies baking......... well, I got most of those this morning. Dave is in DC today for a big church district meeting, so it was up to me to get the guys to school. so I fixed them breakfast - bacon, eggs, english muffins, and of course, coffee for me. add that to the rain that was lightly falling outside and I am such a happy camper! except that my hunny bunny is missing from the picture........

so that makes me one sad sad sue......... just like the girl from this cute little digi from Designs by Sue/Beary Dust at Digital Ink Company. (man, how was that for some snazzy lead in.......... wink wink!) the fun challenge this week is to use 2 decorative papers and 3 buttons or brads on your project in addition to this cutie. you should see the wonderful digi that is the prize - CUTIE FUN SET!!!!!!

My papers are from Basic Grey (surprise!) Wisteria and 3 Bugs in a Rug. Go figure, I didn't use buttons on this project, I used brads instead. thought I would mix it up a bit! ;) Sue's hair bows, pj feet and prima flowers have been painted with lavendar shimmerz. The floral border punch is by Martha Stewart. The heart pin is actually from the notions dept. at JoAnn's. all coloring is watercolors - just got new watercolor brushes yesterday and I am doing the happy happy dance over that one!!!!! my old ones were gettin' all icky on me....... bleah....

have a glorious day and find something to make you smile! don't be a sad sue! :D
love ya! Jennifer
p.s. I am also using this card for the color challenge over at Ildi Co. It is their first challenge - to use lilac, yellow, and brown.
