Thank you card

I need more Copics…LOL. I spend way too much time trying to match colors rather than just coloring. I LOVE the color in these papers I got on a recent trip to Archiver’s and tried to pick out the little bit of blue in the paper…did it work?

I am trying to get the kiddos ready for ITBS testing next week and have been busy on the Home School front…so the blog commenting and visiting has dropped way off. I Hope you will bear with me.

The snow has finally melted here and the seagulls are now floating in the lake!

Take care and ENJOY!

Very pretty card!! The emphasis on the 'blues' with the flowers is gorgeous!

Jamie Harder said...

Beautiful colours and such a lovely card!! I *NEED* to get myself some Copics...:-)

Sparkle said...

Such a pretty card!

Marie said...

Your coloring is always great...and the colors look fantabulous. (I haven't bought a single copic...afraid that if I do it will open a floodgate of financial outpouring LOL)

Marie said...

Oh - and don't stress too much over the testing - I'm sure your kids will do great - and afterwards you'll be high fiveing :-) Hugs from an ITBS survivor ;-)

Darling card. Love your coloring job. I am trying to buy 3 or 4 copics a month. I found an online store that sells them in sets that go together so you can do shading more easily. I think I lost the address in my crash, I'll have to hunt for it. Let me know if you want the name or address. If you are going to buy them anyway...

Your card is so cute. The coloring is awesome - the blue looks just right.

I keep waiting for the Copic craze to go away and cheap chalk or something to come back and be all the rage. Do ya think? LOL.

I'm sure your kiddos will do fine on their testing. They've got the best teacher in the world.

You're excused even though I gotta admit I miss the cheer you share. Take care, friend.

Great card and fun colors too! She is so cute, love how you cut her out and popped her up! Good luck with the testing prep!
Cheers,
Shanna :)

Kim said...

Yes, it does work! You make the copics look so easy! If I knew I could make it that gorgeous, I'd invest in them! Love the paper and your Anya!

Good luck on the ITBS! Just found out yesterday, our testing is extended until May 10-21, so glad!
Blessings,

This is so pretty Sarah. I love your coloring.

HappyCrafter said...

what a graceful card! I like how you popped up the layers and the main image.

Jeanne said...

Oh my gosh, Sarah! Your coloring on this image is stunning! Wow! And yes, you picked up on the blue perfectly.

I have to admit, I'm like Kathi, waiting for a less expensive new coloring fad. I unfortunately cannot get past the cost of Copics and therefore, can only admire the fabulous coloring abilities of others.

I'm sure your kids will do wonderfully on the testing. I have to agree with Kathi, here, too! They've had an outstanding teacher, how could they not!

I sure hope the storm that dumped over 8 inches of snow in our neck of the woods isn't headed your way. I got a blister from shoveling! LOL

Glad the seagulls are able to swim in the water now. *Ü*

Gorgeous card, gorgeous coloring!

Carolyn Christie said...

OH MY! That is a Pretty Card!! What a cute image! Love the colors!

Meredith said...

Okay-first thanks for the support on my blog post rant :)

Second--good luck to the kiddos on the testing!

Third-when I dive off into copics I am so coming to you with questions, get ready! That hair on her looks real!!

itsabrt said...

This card is very fetching, I love her humble appearance with the thankfulness. We are thawed out here as well! Yippie! Beth

Haley D. said...

Beautiful!!! It is amazing to think that all that ice has melted and the gulls are floating instead of walking. Enjoy!

Sharli said...

This is a gorgeous card Sarah! The colors are perfect and I love the shine in the girls, hair - at least, it looks shiny the way you've done the coloring. Excellent work!

Hugs!

Kelley Eubanks said...

Very pretty!! Love that image and I need more copics too... I do the same thing!

Heather Jensen said...

She is just adorable. I need more Copics also. Hobby Lobby has them on sale every other week. Usually 30% off. Cheaper than Archiver's. :)
