FCCB Challenge #61 - Blue Skies

**  For information on where to vote for me, click here  **
Since we are finally starting to have some blue skies here, I thought I would celebrate by participating in this week's challenge at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog.  The challenge for this week is to make a project using the color blue, and a cloud.  I am also using my recently purchased Kate's ABCs cartridge, which I love!  So full of little girl sweetness.  The stamp I am featuring is from the My Pink Stamper set called Sweet Baby.  Robyn always has just the perfect sentiments!  For more information on where you can purchase her stamps, click here.

The color blue, well that was easy.  I love the combination of blue and yellow for little girls - probably because I have two girls.  My favorite color on my oldest is light blue, and my favorite color on my younger daughter is yellow.  And they both have dark hair, so you might say that this little girl is the perfect representation of my daughters - although they're not so little anymore (sniff).  The cloud, on the other hand, was a bit of a challenge.  I don't think I have any cartridges that have clouds on them (oops, just thought of one!), so I used my Gypsy to weld some circles and an oval together.  My cloud looks ever so slightly like a frog's head, but that's OK!  ;-)
