( ** You can enter my birthday candy here **)

Hello everyone!  Once again we're having some extremely hot weather so I'm only going outside if I absolutely have to lol!  I hope you're managing to stay cool wherever you are ;)  Today I have a card to share using a Sugar Nellie image. 

This sweet girl is Chillax.  She must be extremely popular right now as she's sold out, but I'm sure Funky Kits will have her back in stock soon.  I love her gorgeous face and that beautiful hair.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  I added some flowers from my EK Success punches.  The tiny sentiment tag is from a Tim Holtz die.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs, Anita
