Polka Dot Girl - Spots & Stripes

I've always thought Karen at Karen's Doodles (spots & stripes challenge) had the cutest children images along with many others so I decided to start using the ones I have.  Amazing how many digi's we collect and then they sit idle on our computers cause we get distracted easily, at least I  Nope, no New Year's resolutions by me cause I never seem able to keep them.  So, I've set some goals for this year, short term, cause life has a way of getting in the way sometimes.  I had planned to enter this into the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge but the link was closed, (sobs) another missed opportunity. 

I've had this DP for ages and apologize for not remembering where I got it.  The copper is left over from my grandsons wedding invitations 2 years ago.  What does that tell ya.....Yep, guess you could say I'm a paper hoarder.  Colored with Copics, added a doily, flower, and gems from my stash and a Cheery Lynn flourish die.  Lots of stickles so I hope you can see the glitter and the shine of the copper in the DP.

That's it from me today.  Hope your week is fantastic and blessed with hidden treasures and to see you back again soon.
"Love & Hugs" Carol (Granny)

ps. Yesterday we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and today in my 69th birthday so we are headed out dinner and then a party with the kids on Saturday. 
Oh my, I hope the next 25 don't go as fast as the last 25.

Carol, Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday. I hope your dinner out was good and I know you are looking forward to time with the kids on Saturday. I love your card and I am sorry you didn't get it in at SSW, the girls would have all loved this one. I adore those flourish dies and I too have always been a huge fan of Karen's.
