Go Fly a Kite

Hello Bloggy Friends. I am still writing to you from, at times, a chilly South Africa. My scheduled return to the US is in two weeks from yesterday. I know someone there who is counting the days.

Today I am showing you my play with this month's Imagine That Digistamp Progressive Challenge image called Go Fly a Kite. I opted to use the mouse and create a CAS card.

Although I came knowing that the progressive image would only be released once I was already away from my crafty stash and tried to prepare accordingly, I forgot the most import element - my favorite pencil paper. So anyway, I printed the image out onto a piece of marbled cardstock that my friend had and colored it with my Prismacolor colored pencils. The sentiment comes with the monthly digi and I printed it with the image.

Once the image was colored, I cut the panel down to 4 x 5.25 inches and then pasted it onto a notecard size kraft cardbase that I made.

I love seeing the results of progressive challenges. It is so amazing what different people do with the same image. And what fun it is to get one of Kris' images in my email every month.
