The Great Outdoors - Saturated Canary Challenge

Edit:  Shared top 3 honors at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations
Edit:  Shared top 5 honors at The Crafty Pad

Happy Thursday folks!  Does anyone love Thursdays like I do??  I know there's just one last day between me and my weekend.  And I soooo love my weekends!!  But that's not why we're here today, is it?  We're here because it's another superdillyicious challenge at Saturated Canary.  Now that's a good day!!!

The only bad thing is I'm so danged late with my post.  It's been quite a couple of days and I didn't plan very well.  I won't make that mistake again... at least I hope not!  : )  The theme for this challenge is 'The Great Outdoors'.  Krista has some cute, cute, ca-yute images that will fit this challenge perfectly.  I decided to go with this beauty called Chasing Butterflies which is one of the latest images in the Saturated Canary shop.  Isn't she just all kinds of sweetness??  You never cease to amaze me Krista.

I went with my pinks again... obviously!  I just bought a pad of the new My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up.  Such pretty designs and colors.  I added three of those silky ribbon flowers, some swirly pearls, black gems (in the butterflies' centers) and a sentiment and voila... a card for a friend, family member, helpful neighbor or whatever other situation you need.

I guess that's it for this post.  Throwing 'happy weekend' thoughts out to you a day early.  I'm hoping to catch up on a lot of things this weekend while Madeline is gone to spend time with friends.  Which probably means I won't get anything done as I'll just want to color!!  : )  Take care my friends.
Hugs, Denise

My name is Cindy

I really like this card, the choice of image, colours and papers is fabulous - everything about this card just rocks!! So I am really sorry to say that it can't be included in or prize draw or Top 5 because it has been entered into too many challenges. I do hope you will come and join in with us again another time though. Best wishes, Cindy, Try it On Tuesday
