WD Inspiration - Sailor Girl


I'm popping in today with a little inspiration from the Whimsie Doodles blog.  Today I am using the cutie image, Ahoy Lizzy -

 -

I colored her up with Copic markers and used red, white and blues.  The little sailboat die from Simon Says Stamp seem the perfect little embellie for her.  For more from Whimsie Doodles, check out the blog here.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Aloha,
Brenda

AYLI #96 - Fav Hair Color

It's time for another As You Like It Challenge.  This fortnight our challenge theme is to make a creation using your favorite hair color.  Let's see that colored hair on your creation and tell us why it's your favorite.

This week our sponsor is:




Here is my card  - 


I would have to say my favorite hair color is red or auburn.   I love red hair or hair with red highlights.  It was the color of my hair before it started turning "blonde".  I love that in certain light it can look brown but add a little light and it turns fiery.  For details on this card see below.

I can wait to see your creations and learn what your favorite hair color is and why.  So, head back to the AYLI blog to link up your creation.  While you are there, check out the prize that's up for grabs and take a look at the gorgeous creations the DT made for you to see!  

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your week is going well!

Aloha,
Brenda
