CLP Challenges debut!!!

Hello Friends,
Today is a wonderful day,
the first of the month,
and that means that the amazing Chelsea
of Crafting Life's Pieces
has a new sketch for us to play with!!!
But wait, wait wait!!!
She recently decided to move her sketches
from her personal blog to a new challenge blog,
CLP Challenge Blog,
she was looking for a few crafty ladies
to join her in her new blogging adventure
and I thought I would try my hand at joining,
and woohootyhoo, I did!! Thanks Chelsea!!
Chelsea, myself and many uber-talented ladies
made the debut today, check the line-up out HERE
So without further ado, today is LAUNCH DAY,
here is my take on her gorgeous sketch!!

I won the lovely Belle with Laundry during a recent Belles and Whistles bloghop for their latest release, yay!!! I've wanted to ink her up since she arrived and finally, the time is here. Belle is coloured with, what, Prismacolor pencils. Those oven cleaner fumes have really done a number on me.... Basic Grey DP, except for the heart patterned paper, that is MME, the lush ribbon is from Elise, LOVE IT, thank you!! The flowers are stash, as are the lace, ribbon and pearls, and the little banners, well, yeah, I made them, I had to write out my sentiment as my printer is OUT of ink, not even a drip left, I bled her dry.

FORGOT TO SAY: This is for my mom for Mothers Day, I don't know any moms who've gotten away without doing loads and loads and loads of well, everything, including laundry, so I thought this stamp sorta says MOM, in a good way though, hahaha!!

Well, seeing as this is already late, the big reveal has already taken place, I better just get this posted!! I also thought I would join in at PaperTake Weekly, they want us to do something different. I coloured in pencils, that has become unusual. I do hope that we'll see you over at CLP Challenges, such gorgeous, versatile sketches!!!

Take Care,

Wahooo woman! This is simply FABULOUS!!! You know .. there's something about this that is kinda ... can't think of the word. Well, what I'm trying to say is ... this card should be GIVEN to you! You know, "We love you for all that you do!" Okay, you cook, you clean, you work, you take care of the kiddo's, you've gotta do life ... the list is endless. And I can see you carrying a basketload of laundry ... like very often! lol! You're like a gorgeous Cinderella ... clean clean clean all the time! When is it YOUR turn to relax?!!! You need it too!

Alright, enough of my ranting... lol! Let's get on to the good stuff here! Well my love, your card is simply FABULOUS!!! It's the colors that all pop together and just makes everything so ALIVE! I love how you've colored Belle ... she looks like you ... BEAUTIFUL even if you're doing housework! And those flowers?! Luscious & Lovely! Truly GORGEOUS work as always! Love it love it love it!

Big Hugs,

You lucky duck on winning this fab image! Hope you are having a great weekend. I'm in the big city visiting my mom!

Stepahnie, I love this card!! You stepped out of your usual coloring and I love it! The paper mix of patterns is great and that image is so cute. And you're right, Laundry is every Mom's middle name!!!! Sounds like you might have gotten a little caught up with the move and all. Congrats on the DT position, that Chelsea is a smart girl!!!
