You Make me Smile

I had so much fun coloring this awesome image and making this card. This is out of the comfort zone of my normal style. I really do not feel like I have a particular style, per say. But if I did this would be outside of Does that make sense? It has distressing, inking and glitter. What is not to love though, right? I like playing with different techniques and not always doing the same. I guess that is what art and creativity is all about.

This cute girl is a digi from Saturated Canary named Ellie Awesomesauce. And boy isn't she?

The image was colored with Copics. Please see below for a full detail of which ones:

 Skin: E04, E11,E21,E00,E000,R20
 Eyes: G94,TG03,YG01                   
 Lips: R89, R37, R24             
 Hair: B45,B41,C9,C6,C5,C3,C1
 Dress: R59,YR09,YR04,YR02
 Vest: V95,V93,V91               
 Socks and Shoes: N5,N3,N1,N0,YG95,YG93,YG91

Each Day of Life is a precious gift from God.

Here is a card I did recently with the digi image- Heart Strings by Saturated Canary. TFL!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

A Cheerful Heart is Like Good Medicine~Proverbs 17:22

    Is anyone even still out here in blogland?.....

I have not colored or created a card since my last blog post. That seems so weird to me. I used to create almost daily. A sweet friend sent me a handmade card for my birthday and it inspired me to get at it again. I started off slow with this small House Mouse image. I am definitely rusty. I do not think I should have started off my first image in a year with trying to create a shiny black compact. I got frustrated with that. It was a total fail but I was determined to press in and complete it come what may. I am glad that I forced myself to do so. My hubby was a big help with encouraging me to do so as well. I had the creative itch- I scratched it.. and now I want to do more. That is how these things work I suppose. Just needed to get the ol' juices flowing.
 I am trying to set a goal to make a card for each coworker. I am hoping that will keep me moving forward. It sure was good to have inky fingers again and play with pretty paper!

I think I am going to color up another image now. Pray all goes
