Color Me Creative - Friends Challenge and News . . .

Sadly, this is the last CMC challenge for a while.  After starting Color Me Creative four years ago, Suzanne Dean, (the "Queen of Copics" in my book) is moving on to a new phase of her life and is letting go of CMC.  I was asked to be on the DT about 10 months ago and owe Suzanne a big thanks for including me on the team.  My coloring skills have grown tremendously and I will be forever grateful to everyone at CMC.

With this being the final CMC challenge under Suzanne's leadership, it's so fitting that the theme is Friends.  This week, Jennifer Nilsson and her Etsy Shop The Doodle Garden are sponsoring Color Me Creative's challenge.  I used Jennifer's sweet Keep Smiling image for my card.  What a cutie (like all of Jennifer's illustrations are)!  My card design is inspired my friend, Maura's card.  I am sure you will be able to spot her influence!

You can send Suzanne your best wishes over at Color Me Creative.  Play along with us if you love coloring and have been influenced by Suzanne.  It would be spectacular for this challenge to show Suzanne our appreciation with a big finish!
