Sunshine Suzy

     This darling little gal is the image for the Progressive Challenge on the ArtbyMiRan FB page.  She's definitely summery in her bright, sizzling colors.  :-D


I started with the sketch from The Outlawz,
flipped top to bottom..


     I colored the image with ProMarkers and Copics, then cut her with my newest Sue Wilson die.  All the die cuts on this card are done with dies from that same Sue Wilson set.  The sentiment is printed and hand cut.  I added the row of pearls and then chose two bronze pearls plus the bow for additional embellishment.

     Challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee & Cards
Inky Impressions
Send a Smile 4 Kids
Sisterhood of Crafters
Southern Girls
Through the Purple Haze
WordArt Wedsnesday
Work It Wednesday

     OK, you got two-for-the-price-of-one to day -- two posts on the same day!   I'm going to be away this week but I have plenty of posts pre-scheduled so I hope you'll come and visit.  If I'm slow getting around to visiting your blog, forgive me.  I will get there, I promise.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie


Please continue to leave comments.  The "Word Verification" really isn't on.  BLOGGER INSISTS ON SHOWING THE "CAPTCHA" ICON BUT IF YOU IGNORE IT AND JUST PUBLISH YOUR COMMENT, IT WILL POST JUST FINE.  I WISH I COULD GET RID OF IT BUT THERE'S NO OPTION FOR THAT WHEN THE COMMENTS ARE WRITTEN IN A SEPARATE BOX.  SORRY.
