Free Hugs

Good morning and happy Saturday my crafty friends.  We definitely started this weekend with a bang here in Jersey with yet another huge storm that started yesterday with heavy winds and rain; and ended up bringing in about six inches of snow by this morning.  From what I heard, states north of us suffered way worse with more snow.  I'm kinda happy about it, to be me a good excuse to stay in my jammies and whip out my Copics while the kiddies go outside and make snowmen and snow angels.

Saturated Canary is having a color challenge and here are the beautiful colors you get to play with:

You only have to use three of these colors but you do have to use a Saturated Canary image.  I love these soft, sequin tones.  Gorge!

I colored this sweetie in Copics and used my Sharpie Poster Paint marker in white to accent her cheeks and eyes.  The papers are from the Recollections The Neapolitan Collection and the die cuts I've had in my stash for quite some time.  I added a Doodlebug Designs glittery pink button and a pink pearl to the flower centers.  Instead of matting the image, I decided to softly ink around the edges with some Studio G chalk ink to match.  Some Queen & Co. pink and white twine finishes it off.

I hope you are all staying safe and warm!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
