For a special little girl . . .



Hello!   It’s been a crazy couple of weeks with tons of challenges, so the other day I needed to take a break and just color something “cuz I wanted to”!    So, I pulled out this Sarah Kay image that I’ve had for quite awhile and hadn’t even seen ink yet!   She’s called Picnic Time by Sarah Kay from Stampavie and in stock & available at 7KCF.    I think Sarah Kay images will always be some of my very favorite.



I also can’t stop using the Basic Grey olivia papers!   I just love all the colors in this collection – a perfect name too.   My sweet granddaughter, Elia, who lives in Florida recently turned two years old, so I thought this cutie would be just right for her.  

Thanks for visiting today, on this nice and quiet – NO CHALLENGE Thursday!
