So to cheer myself up I used another Penny Black from my friend Tammi (thank you again Tammy!) and this little guy is just too sweet. Look what he brought to his mother- what every young boy brings to his mother sometime in his youth- I hope! I remember I got dandelions and I loved them. The DP is from Bo Bunny Chabby Princess line , I do not know how that is princess but it says it so right on the back so I am goin' with it. I also used SU Barely banana and Old Olive with it- this card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 due to the size of the image. I colored my image with a variety of copics and I used my air system to do the light circles of color around him- the white looked to stark without it and my hubby likes to know I am using that system! LOL! If you do a close up of the picture, I used flower soft on just the 2 pink flowers to give it some dimension and it is too cute that way. Now if I could make them smell too! Oh and look ladies- there are 2 pieces of metal on this card, can you believe that I parted with 2 at one time? I know.... I told you I would turn over the new leaf this year.
Well have a wonderful Hump Day!

Oh that is not so nice is it? I had a good weekend, got some errands done, house cleaning, laundry, and crafting and I was thrilled. I hope you all had a good one too!
Today's card I have to thank my new friend Tammy for because she sent me the image. It is a Penny Black and who knew that PB had these awesome little boy images? I DID NOT until I saw a card that Tammy had done. I might have to break down and get some of these little cuties! I just wish I could purchase them in person- I am an instant gratification gal!
Oh - the card, okay so I colored him with all my wonderful copics and tried to make him look as fisherman"ish" as I could, lots of neutral and earthtones- love the colors. The paper, well I have to tell you that I am a paper (addict) and I have stacks and this one didn't have a label on it- but I used SU chocolate for the base and rust to mate the image and do my litte corner punch out. The grosgrain is also SU and the little wish medallion is Marcella Kay and I thought it perfectly fit. You all know that I have 2 boys and these images are very special to me..... they remind me of my kids (when they were younger, and cartoonish looking- LOL!) Is he not the sweetest?
So- go and have a fabulous week, surfing the web for all those wonderful CHA releases that we are going to be stalking the stores and web for! (evil giggle!)

So today's card is for the Friday Sketcher Challenge and it is a card that I think that I will gie to my sweetie for Valentine's Day. As I have mentioned we are not Valentine Day people, don't exchange gifts or anything but this card is cute and so fitting for Jim. I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card and the DP is from basic grey. I layered the brown DP on SU mellow moss as well as using mellow moss for the scallop matte for my main image- which I did with my nestabilities! (oh, have you seen all the new ones coming out- oh boy!). I colored Edwin with his roses with my copics using browns and greens. I know it is not Valentine colors but I think that it is a bit more masculine for a man this way. I hope you enjoy it- my sentiment I made up and printed with the computer!
Oh and I almost forgot- I have some exciting news that I will post about tomorrow! So come back and see what is going on.
Have a FAB day!
