Happy May Day!!

Wow, between a sickie kid with strep, and hanging with my two littles watching movies and coloring in bed, I've not had a whole bunch to update you fabbies with here.

With the rolling in of May (can't believe it's May already!! pinch me!)
we have a new monthly challenge ready for you over at Some Odd Girl!

This month it's a sketch.
A wonderful fabby sketch by Kristy!
Here's a peek at it.
You can see it larger and all the DT Creations on the SOG Blog.

You are going to want to play this month..
because not only is there TWO winners this month, but one of those winners will receive a $25 gift card to Oozak.com!! Rusty rocks!

Here's my take on the sketch.

I inked up Thank you Mae and stamped her on Copic Xpress it paper with memento ink, and colored her with Copics. I was completely inspired by that circle AND a new silhouette file I purchased in the Silhouette store. Not only is this card cute, it's super functional giving you plenty of room to send a nice long chatty catch up card... because it opens in two places. If you pull the banner at the circle, it opens, and again all the way at the bottom like a traditional card.
I thought that was so cute.
I still need to adhere a white sheet to write on in the other panel, but I could also just attach a gift card inside there as well.
Decisions, Decisions! :)

Recipe: CS: Copic XPress it, Bazzill; PP: October Afternoon, My Minds Eye; Fabric: Studio Calico; Ink: Stazon, Ranger, Memento; Bling: My Minds Eye; Stamp: Thank You Mae - Some Odd Girl; Silhouette Files: Card Base #6, curvy banner;
Copics: YR0000,YR000,YR00,YR01,R21(skin) E50,E55,E57,Y38 (hair) Y17,Y18,Y19,Y08,BG000,BG01,BG05 (clothes) E27,E28 (eyes)
I love her rich chocolate eyes and bright pink cheeks. :)
Head on over to Some Odd Girl and take a peek at the fabulous DT creations.. oh, and meet a new member of the team as well.. you'll love her!

See you tomorrow!
