Susie with Pie

I made this card using Susie with Pie from The Stamping Bazaar drawn by Marina Neira and placed her against the Wacky House from Make it Crafty. Both images had a country feel and I thought it would be a fun match.

There is also some exciting news from each of these companies! From The Stamping Bazaar... don't miss out on the Little Elf with Present Digi Giveaway which is going on until tomorrow night! Plus keep an eye on the Make it Crafty blog this weekend for a big announcement!

Sometimes coloring the empty sky is the funnest part - on this one I had drawn swirly clouds on a separate sheet of paper and traced them on the main image with the blue marker.

I entered this card into the Fuzzy Wuzzy challenge which was to use multiple images. Now on to the fun announcement of Blog Candy! The random WINNER of the InStyle Stamps BLOG CANDY is...

Did you know? The Hexabranchus Sanguiseus was given the common name "Spanish dancer" because the whirling swimming movement, and the red color of the mantle, are reminiscent of the skirt movements of a flamenco dancer.
