Warm It Up

Hello all!  It's Monday so that means we have a fabulous new challenge for you over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  It was our lovely Mary J's turn to select the theme and she has chosen Warm It Up (keep warm, warm/hot colors, anything that makes you feel warm).  


I used Sonny Honeycloud - Lifes a Beach for my warm it up card.  Oh how I wish I were somewhere nice & sunny so I could wear an outfit like hers lol!  I used copics and colored pencils and added some Glossy Accents to her sunglasses.  I applied some Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint to the sun to make it sparkle.  And since Sonny is all dressed up for the beach I thought this sentiment would be perfect for her.

We are being sponsored this week by Crimson Cloud.  Be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog  to check out the fabulous projects by the rest of the DT.  I hope you play along with us this week.

Thanks for stopping by and try to stay warm!

Hugs, Anita
