These cute new images from MelJen's Designs are sure to bring a lil happiness to any girl's day.
When I first saw these new images by Melissa I knew I had to find just the right quote to go with the 'makeup brush'. I'm thinkin' I nailed it.
"Cosmetics are a boon to every woman, but a girl's best beauty aid is still a near-sighted man." --Yoko Ono-
I knew this was perfect the moment I found it. I wanted a lil bit brighter coloring on this image so I used my Sharpie Markers with my Prismacolors and Odorless Mineral Spirits. A bit of Glossy Accents here and there and some Bling to add the finishing touch, cause a girl can never have too much 'Sparkle' in her life.
So Girlfriend, thanks for stoppin' by, you can find these fun new images at MelJen's Designs and be sure to check out this week's MelJen's Challenge.

I'm looking over a four leaf clover that I overlooked before. One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain, third is the roses that grow in the lane. No need explaining, the one remaining is somebody I adore. I'm looking over a four leaf clover that I overlooked before.

Lucky for me she also offered this pre-colored image, SHAMROCK BEAR
...It's been a crazy week and crafting time has been at a premium. This fit the bill perfectly. Love this lil pre-colored bear--so bear-y cute. I used Glossy Accents on the shamrock, hat and his pot-o-gold, Gold Stickles on his hat buckle and gold, and just a bit of Stardust Stickles here and there.
Be sure to stop by MelJen's to take a peek at her new releases and join us for this week's GREEN Challenge.
Here's hoping you have a LUCKY DAY and HAPPY CREATING...

I decided to use some of Laurie's Pre-Colored images and chose the Sheep, Easter Basket, and one of the digital papers and sentiments included in the set EASTER SHEEP. With 3 grandgirlies, ages 5,4 and 2 up for a visit, along with our 3 oldest boys all home for a visit the past 2 weeks-I've been more than pressed for time and these just fit the bill perfectly. I've never worked with a pre-colored image before and it was really a lot of fun. Laurie also offers these same images in B/W outline for coloring as well. You can see, they are definitely EGG-stra Special.
Make sure you check out all of Doodle Pantry's New Releases, cute, Cute, CUTE! and the new Challenge.

We all have a bit of rain in our lives now and again and when those storms come round I've always found it helps to 'play in the puddles', to find joy in our most important blessings and treasures, family, friends, life and this amazing world we live in.
