Pretty Pink & Blue!

Good morning and hope that your week is starting well? And for those of you (like me!) with the school holidays in full swing - I hope that you're surviving without constant need for caffeine, chocolate or something stronger! If so, you're probably doing better than me! I seem to have this constant trail of teenagers wandering through the house (and especially the kitchen!) and am thinking of just sticking a big sign up saying 'Kim's Cafe'! I wouldn't mind but they're all a lot taller than me now as well! I remember the days when it was lots of little ones bombarding the house, but now they arrive on skateboards & bikes!
Anyway, less of the waffle and on to today's card! Believe it or not, this is my first Saturated Canary digi - and probably not the last! I've kept seeing these images all over peoples blogs and have finally succumbed!
This one is called 'Thank You' and I just love that expression!

I've coloured her with promarkers and pencils and the papers are freebies - and I can't resist freebie papers!

I've added a Marianne die cut swirl and punched flowers with pearls. The middle panel has a Tonic 'floral border' punched edge and ribbon, with a sheer ribbon bow. Quite a simple card really, but I didn't want to overwhelm the image - those eyes should take centre stage!
Hope you like her!
Back soon, Kim x
