Friends Having Fun Color Challenge #2

Hello! I cannot believe it’s already time for another Friends Having Fun Color Challenge! Here are the colors I chose for this month:


Aren’t they pretty? I love how warm they are!

This month, we were honored to be sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps. Jodie offered the Kaleidoscope Krew a digi to work with. I had such a hard time choosing! There were adorable monsters, cute dinosaurs… but then Laura brought the Skelekinz to my attention! They are SO cute! Here’s what I created:

CC #2

Isn’t she adorable? I have big plans for her. She will definitely be going on a layout of The Girl in her PJ’s. And I love her hair and rattle!!!


Of course I used my colored pencils to color her in, and I aged the edges a bit with some Antique Linen Distress Ink and some Terra Cotta Chalk Ink.


The card is made up with some fab Cosmo Cricket paper. And the sentiment is from Inkadinkado. This card came together so quickly, and I love the end result!

Won’t you play along with the Kaledeiscope Krew??? You have a whole month to get your project uploaded to the Friends Having Fun blog. Need more inspiration? Check out the rest of the Krew’s amazing projects!

And please visit Bugaboo! You will fall in love with their sweet images!!! Have an inspiring day!!!

Oh! One more thing! I wanted to say a quick “Thank you!” to all the folks who took an to Type O Negative after reading my last post. It’s so cool that they may have gained some fans thru me!
