I have actually had him colored and sitting on my desk for about a week now. I just wasn't sure what to do with him. He is colored using my Copics. I just love those markers!

The background uses a Technique Junkies technique called Dragged Madras. Goodness it has been awhile since I used a TJ technique. It was actually a little more difficult than I imagined. I was able to cover some boo-boos under the main image. Speaking of images, meet Jack. He is a fairy from PMS (Paper Makeup Stamps). Having only a little boy I find myself looking for images that relate to boy things and Jack fits the bill!

This card is for two challenges, one is the sketch is from CPS. I love the simpleness of this sketch. Makes for a easy card. :)
Also, OCC's challenge this week is to use your favorite color combo! Having a boy I have grown to love blue and green. This card uses plenty of those two colors. :)

This card will go into Troy's lunch for a mid-day surprise. He has seen the image on my desk (and wanted it immediately) and has been waiting for me to give it to him.

Well, I have another image I have colored and just need to make a card of it. Must make a bday card for my MIL too. So I'd better get busy. :)

Stamps: Jack Fairy (PMS); Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Broken China & Peeled Paint (Distress Ink), Chocolate Chip Marker (edge of Label layer); Paper: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White; Accesories: various Copic markers, Label Three, Scallop Edge punch (SU), White gel pen, sponge.

Yes, it's been ages. We were on vacation for a week and when we returned I think I left my mojo in Cancun! Then I was sick, yada, yada, yada. . .

Anyway, Friday was DH & my 10th wedding anniversary. Well, I liked DH's reaction to his Christmas card (scroll down to Miss Crystal) so much that I decided to purchase Jerrica (she's near the bottom on the right) from Rubbernecker. Isn't she just perfect for a romance card?? I wasn't disappointed in DH's appreciation of my card either! Or perhaps it was his appreciation of this sophisticated lady rather than my card.

I went to SCS for inspiration and used card sketchSC224. The embellishments came from K&Company rub-ons I had purchased. They are wedding themed and looked shimmery in the package. Once on my card they didn't look as shimmery but rather like the green color that glows in the dark. Oh well, too late now.

I tried to get the ribbon to tie in with the dress colors, but I'm afraid they take away some of the pop in color from the dress. I used my Copics to color Jerrica. I used some Georia Pacific c/s I was able to get my hands on. (I thought I'd heard that this worked well with Copics. NOT a good mix!) At least I'm back stamping!
