Card Makin Mama

It has been so long since I had the urge to make a card. I have been so immersed in multi-media and sewing that it hasn't been front and center. Neither have I used my copics in some time.

This weekend I decided it was time! I pulled out my copics and COLORED!!! For the length of time it has been since I used them, I feel that the image turned out well!

I love the sprites over at Stamps By Aurora Wings. They are a dream to color and so whimsical, they are difficult to refuse!!

I created this card using the Sunflower Sprite. The papers are from Authentique and My Minds Eye. The shroomies are from a chipboard collection from My Minds Eye called Now and Then. 

Not too shabby for my first card in ages!!! I am also entering this card into the "anything goes" challenge on their blog!

After that, I was inspired by the large hoard of colored images I unearthed while looking for a new one to color. There are images from Saturated Canary, The Greeting Farm, Tiddly Inks and Zap Pow Designs. A bit of everything, really.
I chose an image from The Greeting Farm. This image was colored, easily, 2 or 3 years ago. Pathetic? Yes. Apologetic? No.

I used these papers from Authentique. They are SO darling, that I knew they would go with this tea party image from The Greeting Farm. The image is so old that it doesn't appear to be on their site anymore! WOW!
These papers were a dream to work with! Absolutely a dream. I LOVE the way the patterns mix and match! The pad is called, Classique. It is an old pad, but it showed up at a local Tuesday Morning so I pounced!

All in all, I feel that getting back to my roots (card making and scrapping) is going to be a good thing. My goal is to work my way into being on a design team and maybe work for a company. I have dreams and I am tired of selling myself short, so....I will work and make my dreams come true!

Have a wonderful week, all!!
