Hope Your Day Blooms With Happiness

Happy Monday everyone! Okay, let's just say I'm trying to be optimistic. After all, if we lived our lives by weekends, we'd only have 52 in a year. Besides, it's time for another fun challenge at The Pink Elephant!



Today's challenge is sponsored by The Cutting Cafe (thank you Regina!). The color challenge is to use PASTELS!

First, I have to tell you I had a "senior moment" and didn't realize until it was too late that The Cutting Cafe is our sponsor this week; otherwise, I would most definitely have used one of Regina's awesome images and/or backgrounds. I have several and love them!!! If you haven't yet visited The Cutting Cafe, I highly recommend that you do!

I found this sweet image called Rupert's Gift at Squigglfly, drawn by the amazing Crissy Armstrong. I wanted to practice coloring fur, which I learned by following the tutorials at Copic Creations. Copic Creations has become my new favorite blog since I'm determined to take my Copic coloring skills to the next level. They are celebrating their one-year blogoversary right now with a prizes, so be sure to hop on over and check it out!

Unfortunately, my mojo went on vacation and forgot to take me along. There's something "off" about my card, but I can't spend any more time fiddling with it. I have to move on! {LOL}

The stars, of course, are that sweet image and my favorite retired SEI designer paper... Penelope. I'm sure going to miss that paper when I run out, but we'll all probably be sick of it by the time I do!

Please come play with us this week at The Pink Elephant... who isn't using pastels these days?... and have a chance at winning an awesome prize from The Cutting Cafe and/or being recognized as one of the Top Cards. Be sure to click over to The Pink Elephant blog to see what the rest of the TPE girls have created this week... their mojo is right on track!

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope YOUR day blooms with happiness!
