Saturated Canary - Haley and Harley

Good evening everyone!  We are enjoying the extra daylight time here in the northeast U.S. as we have "sprung" our clocks ahead for daylight savings time this weekend.  It's always nice to have the extra daylight but OH SO miserable to lose that extra hour of sleep.  Problem is I never seem to feel the loss right away, it takes a day or two before this body of mine realizes I am drop dead tired and I need to rest a little extra.  After about a week, OR two the body finally starts to adjust to the new routine. 


Today I used that extra daylight to catch up on my projects and I was able to make a card for the current Saturated Canary challenge.  The current challenge is to use a doily on your project.  This may seem a little strange but I am not big on doilies.  I never know quite how to use a doily in  my project and I must confess I can NEVER find where to buy them at the store!  Really, Never!  This time isn't any different either, I just happen to be lucky enough to have a small pile of doilies my mother-in-law sent to me.  So, thanks to her, I can enter the challenge this week.


For my project I used the Saturated Canary image, Haley and Harley.  Funny thing is that when I finished coloring the image I felt like Harley was the image of me when I was young.  I colored her hair a dark blond, which was my color as a child, I used to dance and pigs were my absolute favorite when I was young.  If I had given her blue eyes it really could have been the spitting image of a younger me!




Materials used to make this card:
Copic Markers 
MS large border punch
MS Frond Punch
Spellbinder's Foliage die
Spellbinder's Labels die
Fiskars Butterfly Punch
Glossy Accents
Crystal Stickles
Susanaments sentiment stamp
Doily
Broken China Distress Ink stamp

Here's a close up of my colored image.


Thanks so much for stopping by today,
