Friday Sketch for Digi Haven with Flat Friends

*****I'M A WINNER!*****


HA! Catchy title huh?!? I'm trying to title my posts so I can easily find a post if I have to go back and look for it. Follow me? ;) lol No pun intended! It is just a coincidence I moved my followers to the top! ;) So anyway... I think the title will pretty much cover all bases... but before we get started... run... go get your shades... you're gonna need them! ;) Go ahead... I'll wait here. :)

I've written before how I tend to read guidelines incorrectly and have had SEVERAL fiascos missing deadline dates or using the wrong image for the challenge. lol 'Tis me! :-\ I'm a brave girl though... in remission from leukemia so I very well earned that classification. :) I've... are you sitting down? ... made a card for... ready for this? ... THREE challenges! Yup! I'm sure one of them might could very well be wrong. I've checked, double-checked and triple checked and short of emailing the hosts for clarification I believe my card will pass the mustard with these three challenges... Flat FriendsChallenge 4 - Put a Bling On It, Digi Haven - Sparkles and Bling Challenge and Friday Sketch Challenge #34. I'm almost giddy from the excitement and I really kid you not! If I get these right... OMGee there will be no stopping me now! lol 

Here's the card sketch for the Friday Sketch:

I used a Flat Friends' Digi Image Freebie because Emma Canning is just generous like that. Love it! :) She's a shopper! The digi... I mean... I don't know Ms. Canning well enough to ascertain that but while we are on the subject... who here LOVES to shop? Raise your hand. Oh, come now... I cannot be the ONLY one waving my hand up in the air! Come on! I know there's more of you out there! OK... I see someone WAY in the back timidly raising her hand and smiling... it's not a bad thing! This isn't Shopper's Anonymous... we're among friends! Our little secret is safe. So I love to shop and this image just tugged at my heartstrings. :) lol

Here is the colored image:

These are the Copic markers I used to color the image:

Blacks: N8, N6, N4, N2, N0
Blues: B00, B04
Browns: E13, E15, E18
Greens: YG41, YG45
Pinks: R01, R20
Skin tone: E00, E11, R20

Got your shades handy? Here is the card:

OK... I may have gone a bit over the top but... well... truth be told... I LOVE BLING AND SPARKLE! Sorry! Didn't mean to yell but I just got so gosh darn excited there. lol I used card stock and specialty papers from my stash, all the rhinestones are from Paper Studio at Hobby Lobby... by the way... these were NOT self-adhesive... I thought I was gonna cry!! :'( I've written before how frustration brings on the waterworks for me... I got a little tidbit frustrated! :-| I used some Stickles in Aqua along the outer edges of her shirt. The sentiment... I made that from an alpha set I've had for almost forever and a day so I cannot tell you who it is by since... there's no packaging. :-\ 

I had this sentiment in mind every since I saw "Got green?" on a St. Patrick's Day card and used it on one of my own St. Paddy's cards... ;) ... I figured it was a spin-off from the "Got milk?" commercials. Gave me the giggles something fierce! lol Yes! I DO entertain easily thank you for asking! ;) lol Inside the card I stamped NO! in a large Stampin' Up alpha stamp. lol Anyway... I have a niece who lives one block over and we always talk about getting together for lunch or dinner. She's on disability and I have been laid-off since early November so... cash is super tight for us and will not change anytime soon but I thought I would send her this with a note inviting her to my home for a lunch date. :)

So... I hope I got all three challenges covered with this! I do! More importantly... I hope I can sleep tonight! Just the idea that I was attempting to cover THREE challenges has got me all worked up! I start classes tomorrow and the first one is at 8! Whatever was I thinking when I signed up for that class I have no idea... and get this... it's Anatomy! Ugh! So anyway... super important I be able to go to sleep! :-O
