Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge---Yippeeee it's Thursday!!!

Two awesome things happen on Thursday.  It is Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge day and it is my friday at work. ( Decoded to mean...my days off are Friday and Saturday. )  On to the important stuff!!
I absolutely LOVE this image called My Friend:

Doesn't this just make you go AWWWWWwwww!!!!  A little puppy trying to get the attention of the little girl.  Do you see the little rascal under the gate?  You can double click the image for a close up and personal view.
The challenge hostess this week is our Fearless DT coordinator, The Peggy Marsh.  Peggy chose a 3-2-1 challenge.  3 DP, 2 buttons or brads, and one ribbon.  I was pretty good (for me) and only strayed from the challenge by adding a flower on top of the ribbon but it is also my third dp so it had to be there!!!  That's my story and I am sticking to it.  (it's true too)
I loved coloring this image called My Friend, and look I even had a stamp with that sentiment, added bonus!!!
Two things I wanted in this image were a white washed looking fence and for the little girl to have red hair.  Don't ask me why but usually when I see an image I just know what colors I want to use. This darling image just screams Spring!!!  The daffodils, the cute dress and light weight sweater, green grass and puppies!!  I really like the way this card turned out.  I put it on the shelf above my laptop where I can see it all the time. 
I guess I should add, everything was colored with copic markers...are you shocked LOL!!!  The edges were sponged with  Tim Holtz distress ink broken china. 
Thanks for stopping by and be sure you stop by the rest of the DT's blogs to see the wonderful cards they came up for Peggy's awesome challenge.

Happy Coloring

YAY!!! Was dying to see this colored, Cathy! I was wondering if the puppy would be hard to see, but not at all! -- he's just the happiest surprise once the image is colored and your eyes follow to see what the little girl is looking at. Beautiful job!!
