Tell me a story

     Life can really be trying sometimes so I'm REALLY glad I have an outlet in crafting. :-)  This card is made using the latest freebie offered with the current challenge at A Day For Daisies.  That Tammy can really come up with some wonderful digis!
     My card is colored with Copics and I've used an old Mojo Monday sketch for the design.  Sweet little Prima Jack and Jill papers go right along with the Fairy Tale vibe of the card.
     A huge thank you to all of you who left encouraging words about Mexico Phil.  That boost heavily influenced me to do the second card with he and Horhay and it won at Make It Colorful! (The first Phil made Top Three, so he was a rather popular guy there for a couple of weeks {grin}) That was such a thrill cause it's a coloring contest and you guys know I'm lovin' my Copics!  I do believe I'm addicted.  And to think I said I would NEVER buy those expensive markers!  LOL
     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Day For Daisies--dots and stripes
Paper Crafting Journey--use a freebie
The Rubber Cafe--polka dots
Papertake Weekly--spots and stripes
Tuesday Throwdown--polka dots
