Createful Hearts Challenges

     I'm going to start this second post of the day with some wonderful news, kind of unexpected but delightful.  I was chosen to be on the Design Team at Createful Hearts!   I applied, not really expecting anything wonderful (like being chosen for the team), and within a few hours of applying, I received an invitation to join them.  I was so excited!  This is a brand new blog challenge, separate from and in addition to what you'll see on the Facebook page.

     The first challenge begins today, runs for a month until September 14, and the theme is everyone's favorite "Anything Goes."  The DT is showcasing three different images today and mine is "Princess Annabelle."  I adore this little ballerina.  To see the other two images and what the DT have done with them, please go visit the blog, won't you?


I started with the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.

     I used my ProMarkers to color the image, adding in the floor to make it an indoor scene.  I cut it with one of my stitched dies from Lawn Fawn, and added a dark brown mat (piece of scrap.)  The ribbon came from Really Reasonable Ribbon (also scraps left over from a previous project) and the striped background was a leftover from a 12x12 sheet of scrapbooking paper.  I do love using up scraps!  :-D  I added dimensional daisies and pearls for embellishment and texture.

     Challenges:

Di's Digi Designs
Hiding in My Craft Room
Jo's Scrap Shack
Morgan's Artworld
Pattie's Creations
Polkadoodles
Send a Smile 4 Kids
Stamping Sensations

     I hope you'll come and join us by playing in this new challenge.  With so many challenges closing their doors recently, it's wonderful to see a new one starting up.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
