Hawaiian Birgitta:

Good morning all, it has finally cooled off - it's so nice to have the windows open with a cool breeze coming through my craftroom.

So I decided to try something new (actually two things).  One is coloring my own sky (thank you Annette!), which you can't really see because it got covered.  And two, paper flowers.  The first I love and will continue to do.  The latter I will never *hopefully* have to do again - I had hot glue everywhere and I just could NOT get my flowers rolled nicely.

And because I am feeling crazy, I am putting in my name for a DT position at All That Scraps.  There are quite a few entries so wish me luck!!!

I inked up my new Hawaiian Birgitta - isn't she a doll?  I gave some lil jean shorts and paper pieced her a flower shirt:
Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs Swiss Pixies stamp, Craft Smart Black ink and Recollections Breeze chalk ink, Echo Park So Happy Together and Hello Summer papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils (email me for complete list), Gelly Roll white pen, Recollections branch, KaiserCraft Sparklets.  Tools:  sewing machine, C.C. Designs Fence and Grass border dies, Fiskars Threading Water border punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punch.

I have made Birgitta for the following challenges:  Penny Black - blooms, Let's Ink It Up - all girl, Sweet Stamping Pixies - yellow, blue, and tan, All That Scraps - anything goes, Loves Rubberstamps and Tammy's Scrapin Corner - summer, Sketch Saturday - sketch:

I am going to drink up my coffee and get ready for another Monday at work - hope you have a great day and thanks for the visit!

Your coloring of the sky is fabulous, and I think you did an amazing job of the rolled flowers. You are far too hard on yourself, as you're a remarkable crafter. I wish you the best of luck with your entry.
