Goal, It's Your Birthday!

My son has been playing soccer for years, so I was super excited to color this sweet image from Lily of the Valley digital stamps. I have wanted this stamp for some time, but it wasn't always available as a digi - so glad it is now!


I gave this card to my son last month for his birthday. We had such a great time. We went to the park and he invited friends from school, church, and his soccer team; so we had quite the gang. The park had a basketball court and a big field so they played a little basketball followed by baseball and then kickball. It was fun to see a bunch of kiddos just outdoors having fun!!!



Here are my color combos the best that I remember them. I wrote them down on the backside of my piece in pencil as I colored it but forgot to write them down somewhere else before gluing the panel to the card. Oh well, I tried!

Blues are the B 90s
Grays are the Cool Grays
Skin Tone: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
Hair is the E40s
Grass has Cool Grays and a couple of green colors

Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks Beary Much!


It's been Teacher Appreciation Week this week, and this is a card that I made that was suppose to be given to my daughter's teacher. It didn't make it to school with her gift, but we will give it to her at the end of the year.

I used an svg file from Little Scraps of Heaven. The dies for the panels, the word die, and the sentiment are all from My Creative Time. The pretty floral paper is from Simple Stories Vintage Bliss.

Present to Go!

Received this sweet digi from Di's Digi Stamps as a freebie in the Kit and Clowder group and I just couldn't wait to color it up. There is just way too much cuteness going on and I am also a sucker for presents, especially birthday presents!


I used the following Copic combos:

Present: C9, R39, 37, 35, 22
Bow on the Present: V09, 06, 04
Fur: E47, 44, 43, 41, 40
Bow on the Bear: C7, R29, 27, 24
Little Bear's Shirt: BV17, 13, 11
Ground: C3, 1, Blender
Background: a little B0000 around the image

For my shading, especially for the present box, I used lots of techniques from the free Markers 101 class from kitandclowder.com and techniques I have learned in a few of the other classes I have taken from there as well.


The cardbase is Papertrey Ink's Red Poppy cardstock. The dp is from Doodlebug Design. I colored on Hammermill Bright White 100# cardstock. I used a sentiment and die from Jaded Blossom.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will consider following my blog or following one of my other sites. You can find them in the tabs below my header. Have a great day!

Easter Lamb!


I have another set of Easter cards to share. This time I am using an image from Mindy Baxter over at My Copic Scoop. This little lamb is adorable and she made the perfect way to say Happy Easter.


One of the things I was excited about with these cards is that I was able to practice coloring in grass. I watched a few videos - one a class video from Kit and Clowder and also a few on YouTube. I felt good about starting in a small space - LOL! Maybe I will get around to coloring a meadow next or maybe not!


I used the Copic C (cool) Markers for these. I wanted to try a black lamb, a white lamb, and one in between and I just love how they all turned out.


Enjoy your Easter Holiday! I am looking forward to worshiping in the morning with my church family as we give thanks that Jesus was resurrected!
