Sweet friends and Words from Shakespeare

The current Dilly Beans Challenge theme is Spring. I used the Amalia & Laylah Dlly Beans image because it totally makes me smile. This image is going to be the one that I learn to color hair on. This is my first attempt, but I am going to practice, practice, practice until I get it! Aren't these girls sweet? I added some Martha Stewart punches (leaf and hydrengea) and sponged the image inside of a Spellbinders circel die. This cute little card is going to a sweet friend for her birthday.
At The Octopode Factory the challenge is all about Fashion. I purchased this wonderful William Shakespeare image from The Octopode Factory a few weeks ago, and I am having so much fun with it. There are a million Shakespeare quotes you can pair with it - that man was so prolific. I also used a Lilypink image - the designer loves The Octopode Factory and actually got me hooked on Octopodes so it was only fitting! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Hugz!!!
