Let's be happy!

Well here I am again, third and final post for today! Fab 'n' Funky Challenges  are back after the Christmas break with a brand new challenge for you! A lovely theme this week -' Let's be happy' - simply feature the word 'happy' somewhere on your project.
There's no sponsor for this week's 'just for fun' challenge so the team were free to choose their own stamps or images ;) I took the opportunity to colour up this little sweetie from Mo Manning and tried a new combination of shades to colour her skin...good to experiment , not sure if I can see any difference! The papers are some I've had for years (Gorjuss Girls)- still love them! Sentiment stamp is LOTV.
We hope you choose to play along with this fun challenge, after all we all need some happiness in our lives! To see what the team have been up to please click here to visit us over at Fab N Funky!
Thank you for visiting today!

Hi, Chris! She DOES look OH SO HAPPY! It's your coloring that has me transfixed with those amazing highlights in her hair and that impish little expression that makes you wonder what she is thinking LOL Is it sweetness or is it mischief? Beautiful card. hugs, de

Yes she is a cutie, lovely colouring too. Thanks for sharing with us over at LPCF this month. Good luck.

Wendy Nicola Jackson said...

I love this so much Chris!! That image is delish, and before reading your post, I was going to comment, how radiant her skin looks! LOL. So perhaps it's the new skin combo?! Whatever it is, she is fab!! Love those delish papers and perfect embellies and layout. Big hugs my lovely friend, Wends xoxo

Wendy Nicola Jackson said...

Oh poops! I've just realised I missed your birthday, AGAIN! I always intend to be so fabulous and organised and I've just looked at the date, and it's already the 12th here in NZ!! Which means I'm two days late, right?! Hunny forgive me for not getting a birthday card to you as I'd intended and I'll send you a happy 'unbirthday' card when all the crazy run of celebrations settles down here. Hugest hugs!!! Wends xoxo
