Life Is Sweet–C4C #95

It’s that crazy time of the week—Crazy 4 Challenges time! This week the uber talented Cindy Haffner has challenged us to make a summer card. How fun!!

I can’t think of anything more summer-y than a trip to the amusement park, can you? So, I’m using MFT
’s latest release PI – Sweet Greetings


Doesn’t she look like she’s having fun!? Cotton candy, ice cream cones, balloons, and rides—definitely summer!

I stamped her on a Perfect Paper Panel, colored her with Copic markers, and cut her out. The balloons she’s holding behind her are from Birthday Balloon Jolinne

And here are the Copic markers I used.


Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C95.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
