7 Kids College Fund Challenge Time

Hi everyone! I've been quiet lately and haven't been doing much creating other than working on Designed To Color - which I LOVE but I need to do some coloring and fun things for myself, too, so today I'm taking a day "off" just to create & color! I'm here to share a card I made for the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge #49 - School's Out For Summer!

I love this little Amelia from the Summer Time set by The Greeting Farm. She's just too stinkin' cute!!! I love coloring her hair and have been experimenting with my Copics by adding some V20 to the shadows on her skin. I really love how it just softens up and adds that cool shadow. You know how much I love coloring gingers and for her hair I used YR12, YR14 and R08. One of my favorite combinations. 

Even though I don't have a polaroid camera myself *yet* I love the effect so I dug out my Lawn Fawn "Say Cheese" set and stamped and cut out the polaroid, then added the sentiment. The camera is from Studio Calico - I'm obsessed with their wood veneers! They are so fun to spritz with color. I used Mr. Huey's in Sunshine.

I hope you will join me in the 7 Kids challenge - it runs for 2 weeks starting today so plenty of time to dig out your favorite summer time images and make a card, layout, etc. 

By the way, if you haven't checked out my new magazine Designed To Color - please take a look - we are now IN print and I only have a handful of our April/May issue left so if you don't want to miss out, please order your today!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Carissa, I love your little ginger here. I also love that you call it ginger. It reminds me of the older Babies. lol... I really love your card. She is so cute standing in front on that polaroid. Too cute. I think there is something in the air or it's just that time of the year as I have been wanting to be crafty as well as blog hopping and as you can tell I really haven't done much of either one lately. lol... I'm trying to find my missing mojo. lol.. Have a great weekend. Hugs Lisa G
