Little Darlings Pleats or Ruffles Challenge and some CANDY!

Today there's a new challenge over at Little Darlings! The challenge is to have Pleats or Ruffles on your card. The design team has done an AMAZING job. I hope you will visit them and join us for the challenge. You don't have to use a Little Darlings Stamp, but if you do and win you get a little extra added to your merchandise gift voucher.

When I was at Angie's a few weeks ago, I really wanted to try Prisma Colored Pencils. Well, they don't like me so much. I can't even tell you how many images I threw out. My 'Little Darling' looked like she used some of that tanning lotion and kept it on too long. LOL! On the day I was leaving Angie's she walked me through and showed me how to use them. This is the image I started. I guess I didn't do as great a job with finishing it. The hair and skin look so much better than the dress which I did at home. Angie gave me her second set of Prisma's so now I can practice. Thanks Angie!

I have a little bit of Candy to give away. All you have to do is link my candy on your blog, become a follower and link up with Mr. Linky, at the bottom of this post.
