Something new.

This is my first attempt at an easel card. I was pleased at the way it turned out. That House Mouse image is one of my favorites! Isn't he cute? And again, I didn't record the Copic Markers I used. However, I do know that the mouse was colored with the "W" gray series. Not a lot of help, huh?

I did think that maybe I would make the cake a chocolate color. I think in all things chocolate. I love that stuff. I am not sure how I would survive without chocolate and Diet Pepsi. Anyhoo...back on topic here. I decided that the little mouse would "pop" better if he weren't leaning against the dark cake, so instead, I made the cake a luscious yellow. Yummy.

Thanks for stopping in, Friends. Hope you have a great Memorial Day weekend! Be safe out there!

I love this stamp.

I do have to tell you that I love this Mo Manning stamp. Isn't it so much fun? This happens to be a birthday card for my mother-in-law. However, this stamped image could be used for a lot of different things. I first fell in love with it because it reminded me of my daughter who is in middle school. I recently got some Copic markers (a "need") so I could play around with making one of the girls a redhead. that.

And again, I was naughty. Since I was playing, I didn't record the markers I was using. My apologies. However, sometimes it is nice to just sit and color and not worry about making a list of colors you are using. I will try to get better. Though that may not happen for another couple of posts. (Just a bit of foreshadowing here...)

Hope you are having a great week!

Wow! So much for good intentions, huh? I have had a few unexpected things pop up as far as my job has been concerned. We are now in the process of relocating an 8000-square-foot retail space. However, if the relocation doesn't take place by the last day of June. I will be unemployed. So here is to hoping and praying for a new job!

However, even though I haven't been posting, I have been creating and taking photos. So over the next week, I will post those here.

Here is project number one!

This was a card for my son for his 10th birthday. A couple of years ago he started requesting that I "color" him a card especially for his birthday.
The dragon image was just so fun to color. It is a digi stamp from Dustin Pike. Because I did this just for fun for him, I did something naughty. I didn't write down my Copic color combinations. Sorry, Friends. However, I do hope you enjoy the project. Pop back in a day or two for more photos of a different project!
As always, thanks for stopping by.
