Loves Challenge Day!

Hi All,

It has been a tad quiet around here!  The big reason is I have been pretty sick for over a month now.  I have had barely enough energy to keep up with my design team requirements and actually didn't even post last week!  I even did the ER and doctors last week and both of those are huge cause I never, ever, ever go!  Long story short they are unsure exactly but I was told I had gall bladder issues and a gastrointestinal virus that is floating around.  I am starting to feel a little better and I think the biggest reason is with how sick I was feeling I still participated in a 10k walk/run yesterday to support The San Francisco Aids Walk and my friends team: Team Proctor.  It was brutal and doing that with flu like symptoms was T-O-U-G-H but I woke up today and I felt a huge difference so maybe my body needed to sweat out all the yuck!

OK enough about feeling sick although Loves owner, Laura, commented that my card for this weeks challenge looks like it could represent how I feel.  Hmmmm she may be right!

Here is my card:

I used the adorable Angry Ballerina from Kraftin Kimmie.  I colored her with copics and I tried a new to me technique for the shadow ground.  I like the technique but I definitely will need to practice to get it to look how I would like it.  The paper is Basic grey and Stampin up.  The buttons are from hero arts and the twine is from the twinery.

This weeks challenge was a fun color inspiration challenge using this picture:
I love, love, love these colors together!!!  To see more awesome inspiration visit the challenge blog!

Thanks a bunch and ENJOY!
