Best Day Ever!

Happy Earth Day weekend, Friends!
I have Two candy give aways here (Oozak GC) and here (set of Maggie Minis) - but you must enter for the opportunity to WIN!
 So I am nearing the end of my term with The Digi Bells Design Team Blog for Elisabeth Bell. Today, is my last showcase post on the blog. It has been a wonderful three months! Chose this sweetie of an image "Little Best Friends" from Elisabeth Bell Digi Collection for the project, all colored up with copics. Added blue and pink clouds with chalk, Bev Rochester style.
Followed the sketch by DawnyP over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog for the second time - I love her sketches!
Decided to create a gatefold for this project and the sketch worked perfectly. Pulled out the hoarded kraft CS and chose We R Memory Keepers "cotton tail" DP collection. Cut and embossed with Memory Box and Spellbinder nestabilities, all in the cuttlebug. Actually found my stash of Magic Scraps sand - have had this for well over 10 years - so glad I rediscovered it. *Note to Self* add sand after cutting and embossing the image - LOL...
The sentiment "Thank you for the BESTDAYEVER" is from TLC creations via Free Digital Stamps. Added Hero Arts flowers and buttons, used a bit of floss, and mini jewels from Doodlebug along with the b/w dot ribbon. My sweet friend, KathyCan, punched a bunch of MS butterflies for me, and this project sooo needed one - thank you, My Friend!
Wishing you "The Best Day Ever"!
