Summer Games!

I love this image by Mo Manning.  My Great Grandson played T-ball for the first time this summer so this is his birthday card.  His team colors were blue and black so I tried to use his colors for his uniform.  I always have fun coloring a Mo image.  I colored him with my Copic Markers and used Marina Mist and Real Red for the cardstock.  The papers were in my stash.

Late Again!

I am having a hard time getting back on schedule after our trip.  I am late posting the Alcohol Markers challenge from the Outlawz.   My computer isn't helping, someway all my cards that I have made ahead for challenges just disappeared out of my folder.  I am not off to a good start so think maybe I'll just quit while I'm ahead.  I used a Inky Antics image and colored this with my Copic Markers.  The papers are from my stash.

I love this image because I love butterflies and flowers.  I used lots of bright colors as you can tell.  I made this card before we went to Houston for 6 days.  We had a lot of fun with family but that drive is almost too much for me.  It is 10 hours or longer  because of my RA as we have to stop and let me get out and stretch and walk a little so that does make it a long trip for us.

A big THANK YOU to Creative Craft Challenge 2 for putting one of my cards in their top 3.  I appreciate it so much.

For My Husband!

I made this card for my husband for Fathers Day.  I love Stampscapes images.   My husband loved to hunt and fish and stay in cabins.  He doesn't do it anymore because age and disabilities have made him make some changes in his life but I know he will love this card.  I used Copic Markers and some paper that I have hoarded for over 3 years.  I can't find anymore like it so hate to use it.

Summer Birthday!

My son was diagnosed with blood poisoning and with lots of antiobotics he is much better and should go home from the hospital today.  Thanks for all your sweet comments about him.

This card was made from a kit I received in my SS group on SCS.  I love this LaLa Land image.  It is a perfect summer image and was lots of fun to color.  I made it while I was on vacation in California so have a few cards I can share until I get back into the crafting mood.

Outlawz Copic/Promarker Challenge!

I've been on vacation and got home last night and before we even got home had to take my son to the ER.  They still do not know what is wrong with him after lots of tests.  He was chilling, fever and pain all over his body.  He is still in the hospital today and still chilling.  He rode to the airport with my husband last night to pick me up and we ended up at the hospital until 1:30 AM.   We are still waiting on Drs. to make a diagnosis.  For his sake, I hope they figure out what is wrong with him soon.
