Animal Crackers in my soup.....

 Use something Animal themed, Christine has quite a few cuties with animal pets in them:-) 

 I decided to use this adorable Teddy Bear for my card:-) and why yes the teddy is a girl with a bow ! I know I kept her kind of simple but I thought the papers were enough excitement on this card! Lol
Bear was done with copic markers and I used prisma pencils around her in blue
My Minds Eye paper was used with Bazzill CS
Please don't forget to go see what the other Dolls have created and why not join us?

CMC Brunettes

I hope everyone is doing well:-)
I'm here with the new challenge for

Our Sponsor this time is 
Digi My World!

I used one of the birthday tweens: Jenna

 For some reason these colors do not look as wonderful as they do in person, sometimes no matter what you try in photoshop to lighten, brighten, it just doesn't look as pretty, the dark pink is a beautiful pink but looks towards the "red family" in the top photo, but the colors matched the Design paper so nice that I didn't try and find other colors, But when I took the pictures over a few times and wasn't 100% happy I finally decided to have fun with this and let it go:-) I can sometimes get too uptight about the final photo and forget that I was happy with my colored image:-)
Other challenges I would like to enter are:
Digi Haven: anything goes

Sister Act: anything goes

Supplies used were:
Copics: E29, E25, E33,B21,23,R81,83
Design paper: We R Memory keepers Love struck
Image: Digi my world: Birthday tweens:Jenna
Border punch: EK Success
Banners: My Favorite Things dies
Cardstock: Stampin up
flowers: Wild Orchid crafts

Thank you so much for stopping by
