I'm in LOVE....

My wonderful blogger friend Martha sent me these adorable images and I finally got a chance to sit down and make a couple cards with them last night. Ahh, I really do love these images from The Greeting Farm. They are just the best. I love the way they are made just perfectly to color and the size is great too -- a lot of room to really get creative with coloring. On a side note, they are have a DT call that ends Sunday and I'm busy, busy, busy trying to put together a great submission for them b/c it would just be TOO awesome to be part of such a fabulous company (and I have to admit, pretty cool b/c it's local and Marie just seems super sweet). But it's not up to me and I'm not going to get my hopes up b/c I did that with a previous DT submission and learned that it's not fun when it doesn't work out! LOL Like my hubby told me last night, just have fun with it and make something I love and no matter what happens at least I've enjoyed myself. He's so right sometimes (ok, a lot of times) LOL.

ok, so I used a combination of Copics and Bics to color the images (still working on perfecting that thing called shading!) I also used glossy accents on the star on Ian's shirt, wheels on the skateboard and on Mermaid Anya's tail. I also used Bella Baubles on Ian's card. (it's hard making boy cards!) For the bling in Mermaid Anya's hair I used stickles (stickles RULE).

I really need to start keeping track of what I use on my cards to give more detailed info! LOL
