The Good Fairy Glinda

This wonderful image is one that I won from Sassy Studio for a comment  in a blog hop.  It will be a Birthday Card for my nieces daughter who would like to be an actress - she is 11.  She is going to have the lead in the play Babes in Toyland in their local theatre in Ohio.  I hope her dreams come true, I know she will work hard.

 I have colored the image with copics and silver pen, but I have paper pieced her dress with the same DP as the border of the card.  The jewel swirls are from my stash.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

A Creative Romance  Fairy Tale or Winged Creations

Catch the Bug             Anything Goes

Fish Tales

Here I go with another Kenny K digital image - I do like to work with them because I know my grandkids enjoy them.  This one is for my nephews son who is seven.  I selected this one, because this is about the age that my children used to come home from shopping with Dad with a clear plastic bag with goldfish to put in a fish bowl and when they got older we always had an aquarium.

I colored the image with copics, using Rangers Glossy Accents on the bag with the fish.  The die cut is from Spellbinders, I edged the white one with my copic marker.  I cut the yellow one out of foam, because I thought it would add a little depth without a lot of weight.  The DP is from Recollections and the yellow corner brads are from my stash.  I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock which I mounted on orange corrugated card stock.

Just part of a Triathalon

My youngest son loves to compete in triathlons even though he does not have time to get much practice in these days.  They start with a swim - then a bike ride -  and finally a run to the finish line.  I was amazed the first time I saw everyone start out in the water - and then to see most of them cross the finish line - it was awesome!

So I thought I would use this great digital image from Just Inklined for his birthday card.  I have colored the image with copics.  The background is a picture that I took of the sky from our backyard, catching only the tops of the trees,  I added a strip of black cardstock at the bottom of the card for the road. Put some Rangers Glossy Accents on the water bottles, added a sentiment and it was done!

Had a few computer problems so first post in a long time.  I had someone lined up to fix the problem and then after about five days, he told me he was too busy to do it - I won't be calling on that business again!
