Two Challenges in One

Today I was in the mood to find a challenge and just create something and veg for a while. Nothing stressful... no deadlines, not too much structure. Do you ever get that way?  So, after I blurfed a while, I found two challenges that fit the bill for an image that I had just colored. Yep... probably tackling a challenge from a different angle, don't you think?

The first challenge is for Elaine's weekly challenge at Quixotic Paperie - to use a charm on the card... easy-peasy... I had this cute little "friends" tag charm that was perfect and I've been hoping to use these some day soon... cool!
The second is a sketch challenge at Delightful Sketches and I chose to make a 5 1/2" square card. I think square cards are so hot and perfect in layouts to showcase the digital images that I get at Mo's Digital Pencil.

This image created by Mo is called "Patience"... isn't she adorable? Well, maybe it's that darling cat who is the patient one!

I colored this with Lyra and Prisma pencils... using Gamsol and blending tortillions. When I want to really chill a bit I'll tend to go back to pencil coloring. The papers are various DP's from my stash that I've been wanting to use up.  Here's a close up of the coloring so you can see the shading.

Thanks so much for stopping by.. enjoy your evening and weekend and be safe in all you do.
