Firefighter Honey by Sassy Studio Designs for Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge

I've always loved the city of Boston and the events that happened last week broke my heart.  I'm not nieve enough to think everyone can live happily together, but I take my hat off to the city that had the guts to shut itself down and not stop until it found the individual responsible for causing hurt to it's people.  I tell you, that is one classy, take care of business city and I'm so proud of their strength, resolve, and dedication to their own.  

Sassy Studio Designs is sponsoring the challenge ver at Penny's Paper-Crafty this week and their theme is anything goes.  I wanted to pay homage to those who serve so I pulled out Firefighter Honey and colored her up!



Isn't she just fabulous?!  I colored her with copics and cut her out with my nestabilities.  The papers are from BasicGrey, the baker's twine from The Twinery, and she's got stickles on her coat and hat.  The baubles and button are from my stash.



 I love how she's just ready to slide down that pole and meet whatever happens to come her way!  And I love a redhead!


Here's a couple of side views.


I plan on entering her in the following challenges:

Bearly-Mine Challenge - Digi Days (use a digi)
Through The Craftroom Door - anything goes
Use It Tuesday - use some hoarded supplies (my older BasicGrey paper!)
One Stop Craft - Not a square


Make sure to pick up this sweet Honey and join in on the challenge.  How much better does it get than "anything goes"?

I agree with Judy there are probably a lot of firefighters that would want her on their team.
Your coloring is awesome. And the paper choices are perfect. I love the button and twine touch too.
