Challenge #89-"Weekend Activities"

I hope everyone will find this an enjoyable challenge.  It is "Weekend Activities".  What does this mean?  Well, you can post anything that shows what you might be doing over the weekend.  It can be some type of work or play.  Let your imagination flow.  There should be plenty of images around that would reflect this.

In showing the Design Team's pieces of inspiration, we will begin with my Guest Designer Leona Roberts.
Leona Roberts, Guest Designer
This is the second week that I have been asked to contribute to The Cheerful Stamp Pad.  Today I have made a card using a digi from BB Kakes.  It is called bb-watering boy and is also available in a girl version.  he papers I have used are called Mac mini prints by Bazzill Basics Papers.   I have coloured the image using Promarkers. I have mounted my design onto a Hunkydory shaped card.

 This is really a "cool" image by BBKakes which can be found on the Stitchy Bear Outlet.  Since this was such a cute image, I decided to put it on some polka dot designer cardstock.  The sentiment is one I found in my stash.  This is what I wish I had been doing this past weekend with the temperature in TN reaching 94 degrees.
For the first week of Weekend Activities"-Stitchy Bear (BB Kakes),I decided to use the lovely image called  ”girl watering the garden”  graciously provided to us by our challenge sponsor BB Kakes.  All the weekend activities images from Stitchy Bear outlet are adorable. I wanted to do something different so I created a simple art journal background paper using sprays .Then I layered my cute girl on a navy blue cardstock after coloring it digitally. After that I adorned my card with some  dimensional  flowers  stickers, a pink ribbon and a cute sentiment that expresses how I feel about Spring. Today, Winter starts here in Brazil and I love how Mother Nature always presents us with so many beauties and wonders. Have a magical week and keep playing along with us. We love your work. They are a feast for our  eyes!

One weekend activity many people enjoy is gardening.  I mostly like to just think about gardening!  But this little gardener digi by designer BB Kakes sold by Stitchy Bear is such a cutie patootie that I had to make something with her.  I colored her with pencils, cut her out and set her up with some sky paper and flowers and vines and birds.  This makes for a happy scene!
I based my card on the sketch given here (more details on my blog). Papers are from Spring and Summer pads from Create and Craft. The image is one kindly given by the sponsor, Stitchy Bear's digi outlet 'BB Kakes girl watering', coloured with spectrum noir alcohol pens, with the addition of some gems.
