Weekend cards

Hello!  I got to spend Saturday afternoon and evening crafting with friends.  I made cards.  I had to have three for the girls in the group with birthdays, so I made them first and shot the best photos I could.


All the cards include a Some Odd Girl image!

After I finished those, I made some other cards.  In the past, I've always colored an image and then just moved on to another image or another color combination.  For this weekend, I tried coloring an image the same way and making two identical cards.  It was quick and easy and I made a few extra cards!  Duh!  Why didn't I think of that before???  


Again, all the cards include a Some Odd Girl image. 
(Can you tell I like them????)

My favorite card of the weekend was one I made with Craftin Desert Diva's Stars and Wishes Trolls!  Aren't they just the cutest???  
This card just makes me so happy!!!  This one is definitely getting saved for someone very special!  (Still. . . .looking at it, I can't get over the cuteness!!!!)

Thanks for looking!  All images were colored with Copic markers.  I'm still doing so much coloring and card making- it is one of my joys at the moment.  

Have a fabulous day!

Birthday cards

I've been coloring up a storm lately.  I am so in love with Copics!  They are such amazing markers!  (I promise, I'm not a paid spokesperson for Copics. . .I like what I like!)

This card I threw together with an image that I colored a while back.  I only make that distinction as my coloring has improved.  However, the image needed to be used and enjoyed!

Meet Bubbles Mermaid from Some Odd Girl!

The next birthday card I made is for a co-worker of mine.  I sell my cards at work, and she fell in love with a dinosaur care I brought one time.  I decided to use the same dinosaur on her birthday card.  (She's not a girly girl, so this is a perfect card for her!)

That's all I have for now.  I have so many images that are colored and waiting to be put on cards or other projects.  Hmmm... now to find the time!

Thanks for coming to my blog and enjoying my projects!  See you next time!

Hello Again

Hello one and all!  I have returned to resurrect my blog!  It has been a long time, I know!  My hope is to be more faithful to my blog even if I just post once a week.

Recently, my interest in my Copic markers has been rekindled.  I was introduced to a lady who has the entire set!  Yes, you read that right: she has the ENTIRE set of Copic markers.  Aren't they beautiful???

That, in itself, is a tremendous accomplishment!  However, she is an incredible Copic colorist!!  It was her gorgeous coloring and her beautiful set of Copics that has rekindled my love and use of those markers.  (She has also introduced me to a variety of stamp companies I didn't know existed!)  With that said, I just want to share a few of the coloring projects I've done with my Copics. . .er, and maybe some of her markers! 😄
