Yes, I know. Lately I have had a thing for easel cards. They really are so much fun and make such a nice thing to give someone who you want to give an extra-special card to. This stamp by Stampabilities is called "Bunny Cruise - Bumble". Just a perfect image since we are in the middle of old, hot summer. Makes you feel cooler just looking at it, doesn't it?
I really had to search for a sentiment to go with it though. I ended up using "Warm Wishes" from a Christmas set. I have to admit, I am pretty proud of THAT idea!
Copic Colors: Bunny: W0, W1, W3, W5, W7, R20. Intertube: R01, R02, R05. Water & fish: BG70, BG72, BG75. Background: BG000. Duck & Lemonade: Y32, Y35, Y38.
Thanks for stopping in and "warm wishes" to you too!

I have been card making fool! As I finished up my job, I wanted to do some thank you cards for some of my special friends that I wouldn't be working with any longer at the store. This KaiserCraft 6X6 paper made the perfect background for a friend of mine. Better yet, her favorite color is what? PURPLE! This stamp from Little Darlings was just screaming to be colored for this card.
Copic Colors: Dress: V20, V25, V09. Hat band: RV21, RV23, RV25, RV 29. Flowers: Y32, Y35, Y38 Skin & Hair: E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E59.
Hope you are having some lazy summer days. Around our house we are starting to gear up for the kiddos going back to school.
As always, thanks for stopping in!

I have another card I did for another friend. I just have had the urge to color red hair. Here is a Copic color combo that I just love! This stamp is also from Little Darlings. The flowered paper is from JilliBean Soup.
It seems that lately I have been better about creating than posting. However, someday (before I die) I might get the right balance between creating and getting them up here so you can see them. I have tried to balance scrapbooking, cardmaking and Copic coloring along with the other things in life that I have to do. If someone has a way they manage that, would you let me in on the secret?
Copic colors: Hair: E13, YR18, E07, E09, E59. Overalls: B32, B34, B37, B39. Shirt & Bow: R81, R85, R 89. Flowers: R20, R000, R22. Shoes & Basket: E53, E55, E59.
Thanks for stopping in! Believe it or not, there will soon be another project pop up here because of my creating "frenzy".

Hi there, Peeps! I truly hope you are enjoying your summer, no matter what your plans have been. Vacation? Travel? Spending time with your kiddos? I have been busy trying to de-stress from losing my job (store closed, now unemployed) and trying to find a new job. I am anticipating some exciting things coming up, so stay tuned!
I have had time to create some things. This is a thank you card I did for a dear friend at work. The blue dotted paper is from JilliBean Soup. The flowered paper is from DCWV (I think). ;O) The stamp (isn't she just adorable??) is from Little Darlings. Now, the Copic Colors! I remembered to write them down!!!
Dress: BG 53, BG57, BG09. Ribbon on hat: BV 000, BV 02, BV 04, BV 08. Flowers on Hat: RV 21, RV 23, RV 25, RV 29. Hat and skin: E13, YR18, E07, E09, E59.
Thanks for stopping. Pop in again soon as there are most posts scheduled!
