A little birdie...

Hello friends! Are you enjoying the Olympics? I am utterly ADDICTED - it's bad BUT today I discovered I could watch numerous events live online! :D

We don't have a TV downstairs so I almost always have my laptop with me listening to music but today I watched sand volleyball - men and women as well as regular men's volleyball. FUN! So excited to have found the links - there is a guide showing you everything that is available to watch LIVE. W@@T, W@@T.

OK, I know, you really didn't stop by to hear me rave about the Olympics huh? OK, moving on to the card I created for this week's Cupcake Inspiration challenge; first up our magnificent inspiration photo:

And we are sponsored by the fantastic Robyns Fetish; talk about GREAT images!!

So here's my take on this week's picture using Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #164.

I colored the image with Copics and added shading with colored pencils - I like...it was my first time to try.

For the little tag on the front, I actually made it into a small removable piece which says "Hello Friend". I combined 2 sets from Verve Visual along with my digital image. The tag was stamped with flowers from Hope Blooms in a very light VersaMagic blue ink.

Here are all the pictures; thanks for looking!! Have a great week!
