Well, it's Tuesday, and you all know what that means! Yes, it's another Peachy Keen Challenge! This is the card I created for the Peachy Keen Challenge #4! Another little Lulee! Isn't she the cutest?!! I want to pinch those rosy little cheeks! I can't tell you how much fun it was to watercolor this card! I so very much enjoyed it!! I had the K&Co. paper stashed away, and I knew I wanted to use it, so I took my color scheme for Lulee from the colors in the paper. With already having this great sketch, all I needed was to put it together, but when I got to the bottom of the card, I decided I needed something else. It looked so bare! Well, I had to think for a bit about what to do, and suddenly it occured to me that I needed some fishnet!! Yep! That was just what I thought it needed, so out came the trusty crochet hook and some fine cotton thread, and VOILA!! Fishnet in a flash!!! The splash sentiment was cut from the background paper, and adding the buttons over the fishnet completed the requirements for this challenge. What a great challenge it is!! Won't you hop on over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog, and let us see what you can do with this fabulous sketch!! I hope you have as much fun with it as I did!

Get outta town?!?! You crocheted that?? WOW! Can you teach me to crochet those little flowers everyone keeps using lately? I'll have to bring my hook and thread with me when the sistah's meet up next summer....I might still be around then. :D
