You make me happy

Howdy all! I'm still experiencing technical difficulties with blogger running all of my sentences together so until I can figure out how to fix it I do apologize if my posts are kinda difficult to read. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming... Wednesday means it is ATS challenge day and this week the challenge is to either create a watering can out of paper or to use a watering can image on your card. Because of my lack of paper crafting abilities I opted to use the watering can from the Swiss Pixies Spring set on my card. I then paired it up with Bathing Beauty Emma whom I altered into a little garden looking cutie. I just wiped away most of the decorations on her bathing cap, the bottom of her bikini top and the line of her swim shorts before stamping. Then I drew in the brim of her new hat, the sleeves on her shirt and the the cuff of her new shorts. I just totally adore Emma's sitting pose in this image and have altered her once before... hopefully Christine will make a new stamp or two in a similar pose sometime soon. Fingers crossed hint, hint, wink, wink! ;) Ok, so if you want to play along don't forget that every week there is a new and exciting prize being offered and in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please. TTFN!
