Thinking of You

Good morning friends.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  It's Monday so that means we have a new challenge for you over on the Pollycraft Challenge Blog.  This week it was our lovely Arabella's turn to choose our theme and she gave us a fabulous sketch to work with.


I used Blue's Branch and colored this cutie with my copics and colored pencils.  I added some Glossy Accents to the beak and white acrylic paint to the center of the flower.  My papers are scraps from my large stash.  And here's Arabella's sketch.  Don't you just love it? 


Pollycraft is sponsoring the challenge this week.  If you're the lucky winner you get 10 digis of your choice!  And speaking of Pollycraft digis, have you seen the newest ones just listed over in the shop?  You'll want to stop by to check them out, along with Paula's fabulous sale!   


Be sure to stop by the Pollycraft Challenge Blog to check out the beautiful work by the rest of the DT.  You're sure to find tons of inspiration there.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a sweet day.

Hugs, Anita
