A bit of orange


My oldest son's favorite color has been orange since he learned to talk at about a year. It was "ornage" then. I always thought it was a passing thing, but at 5 1/2 he still loves it. He has the cutest orange crocs, and lots of orange clothes. I was never an orange fan until his obsession. Now I love it, too.

I found this Basic Grey Ambrosia paper that I had been hoarding. When I saw the orange and gray print, I knew I had to use it right away. I picked out this image to go with the paper and colored her to coordinate. Love the simple elegance of this image. She makes me think of summer and farmer's markets. I feel like she just bought a bunch of fresh flowers and put them in her bag. So much fun to color, she's from Rubber Romance.

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope to be back later with today's version of the sketch challenge on SCS, looks like a fun one. All depends on how long Finn naps for!
