I finally had a chance today to open up the really cute Spotlight kit that I bought from The Greeting Farm a while back.  It's a super cute set with all sorts of fun images and sentiments.  I made this card for TGF's Farm Fresh Friday-Classic Patterns challenge.  I also used the sketch from Anyone For Anya.

She is such a sweetie pie!

I tried a little different color with her hair, I am not a big fan of brassy yellow blonde hair, so I used my Y21, Y38, and E33.  I am really happy with that color of blonde!  I used paper from Simple Stories Fabulous pad.  I have a penant punch that I bought from Stampin Up that I used and put fun sentiments on them.  And in case you can't tell, I almost always use chalk on cheeks.  I really stink at drawing them on with copics.  If the image has a really tiny face, and not a lot of cheek, then I will color them in.  

My 7 year old, Maddie, fell in love with this and claimed for her teacher's birthday on Thursday.  

Enjoy your Wednesday!
