Here I am, back with another one of Mercy's fabulous sketches - MTSC36. My image was a bit big for the sketch...but I made it work! I had a customer request a couple of b-day cards for "tweenagers" so these are the cards I made. I love this paper by Junkitz - always perfect for any birthday card. Such bright colors and don't you just love those cupcakes?
I sewed the cupcake paper to green and blue DP from the same paper pack, layered over the striped DP. Love the bright colors. I colored "Cinnamon" from Penny Black with Copics and matched the girls clothes to the various colors in the DP. I stamped the oval from Amuse to ground the girls as they walk along. And see that blue flower? It was ivory - just like the other one...I colored it with my Copics. One of my absolute favorite things to do with Copics - change the colors of flowers and ribbon!!
I have so many cards to share - let's hope this week is MUCH better than last week. URGH...I moaned when I woke up and realized it was Monday. LOL
Oftentimes when mothers are asked if they are ready for their children to return to school - they emphatically reply YES (you know, kind of yelling?)! Not me! I prefer the lazy days of summer - I wish those lazy days had a bit more structure, but they are so 'calm' compared to school days!!!
Our oldest made cheerleader, our middle one is playing volleyball and fall softball and our youngest is playing football and fall baseball. That makes for lots and lots of practices and games - think something going on every single night!! Exhausting!!
That's it for now; I'm glad you stopped by, hope to see you again soon. Hugs, ~M.
