{1.10.2011} hippity hop

Hi everyone….

This week brings on a new COLOR hippity hop challenge to inspire your ippity project.  Remember, you have all month long to complete the challenges.  You can combine them or tackle them individually, so if you wanted to combine the sketch with the colors GO FOR IT!

I decided to just tackle the colors which are RED, WHITE and BLUE.  Mind you, my shades are a little different from the challenge example.  I got a little distracted while choosing my papers.  Oops.

Once I knew the colors challenge included blue, I kept thinking of a blue bird!  How perfect is this bird from the Sing a New Song set.  I do adore him.  Sitting so pretty on his branch just singing away.  I used some Prismacolor pencils to color  him to match my papers.  He is singing happy birthday, did you get that?  Ha!  My silly mind.

Here is a recap of the current IHHCT1 challenges.

Hope you have a fabulous Monday.

Here’s hoping to have time to squeeze in a couple more cards for this week.  If nothing else, I WILL be back Friday for Friends with Flair with Unity.

The talented Lisa H. is next… I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us!
