You're Special

That's the sentiment I used on a card for my great niece.

You're Special


I used the image from Some Odd Girl that I was practising my colouring with Copics.  I got a book on colouring with Copics which was about colouring people.  I was pleased with the results I achieved.  I fussy cut the girl and added her to my base.  The PP from Creative Imaginations  and the sentiment from Inkadinkado.

I entered this into the "Something New" Challenge at Simon Says Stamp challenge blog.

My Mum and Dad headed back to Australia yesterday afternoon.  I did so enjoy having them here for the last 3 weeks and I'll miss having them around.  But it does mean that tomorrow it's back to work for me.... my two weeks leave is up :-(    Not looking forward to having to get up early..  been sleeping in till after 8.00am every morning and staying up late watching movies. 

Thanks for visiting today.  Wishing you a great week full of creating.

Awe Dawn, I'm sad for you. I still miss my mum & she went home about 3 months ago. It isn't fair that they have to live so far away is it. I love this card. Your colouring is just perfect. I bet your niece will love getting this card. Take care sweetie & I hope work goes smoothly tomorrow

Hello Dawn,
Back to reality, but it also means back to a routine, which is not such a bad thing.
Your little girl looks as if she's floating in the air, your Copic work looks great, I love how you have kept the background uncoloured.
Smiles :-)
Sue
