I am hosting our challenge this week, so I will be on the lookout for your crafty projects.

Our awesome sponsor this week is Nicecrane Designs.

To help with our inspiration this week, Team B was generously provided with Nicecrane's collection of 

I picked this cutie patootie because she immediately made me think of Easter. Don't you just love her adorable bonnet? 
It also made me think it would be a great “Thinking of You” card because she looks like she may be thinking or day dreaming about someone. 
Such a versatile image wouldn't you say?

I printed her onto Cryogen card stock which I am not a big fan of btw ( I ran out of my favourite Neenah). 
I then coloured her with my Copic Markers.

Copic Colours Used:

BV000, 00 02     Apron
YG 61, 63, 67 C3   Bonnet
YR 23, E30, 34, 25     Hair & Window
E000, 00, 11 R20    Skin
V0000, 01, 05    Butterflies

The DP's are from a scrapbook kit that I have had laying around the house for years, and finally decided to use because I can't see it being used in a layout any time soon that's for sure!
I used various dies, gems and stickles for bling!
 I found this little poem on line and thought it fitting for my theme.

Well that's it for me today peeps. So get those creative mojo's going and head on over to TTCRD blog to see what my fellow D/Teamie's have to inspire you further. 
I will be entering my card over at One Stitch At A Time Challenge - Use a Digi
