Hello Michu!

Before I introduce Michu, his friends & a paper boat, I want to take a moment and tell you about the St. Patty's party over on the Softpencil PCP Group. Join us for some FUN, FUN, FUN! You can read all the details HERE but hurry as the deadline is Monday, March 15th at 11:59 EST.

Ok for today our challenge was to use the digital image Michu, his friends & a paper boat as well as include EMBOSSING!

I found this WONDERFUL sketch at The Sweet Stop (you can see it HERE) that I knew I wanted to use. In order for the sketch to work with my image, I flipped it. My embossing is the green strip - used my swiss dots embossing folder. I colored the image using my Copics (hair and skin) and my pencils and OMS. I paper pieced the paper boat using some scrap red polka dot paper.

Isn't it an adorable image? Do you want Michu, his friends & a paper boat for yourself? Then check out the Softpencil Blog for details on how you can get one!

Thanks for stopping by today! Join me tomorrow for another Christmas creation. Tomorrow also starts Spring Break for us here in Kansas. We don't have anything special really planned but Abby is looking forward to no school and staying up late :o) This usually means that I don't get much accomplished either - that's perfectly fine though. My baby is growing too fast and I'm looking forward to the one on one time with her. I'm hoping the weather is nice so we can do some outdoor activities!!
