Spring/Summer Thoughts

Hi All,

Last weekend, I was organizing my stamps and mounting a few new sets. With the snow and cold weather I found myself drawn to some new spring and summer sets I've been wanting to use - Peony (Fall Supplement) & Outdoor Adventure (Base catalog).  I was actually coloring these while watching Miracle on 34th Street - weird I know.  I have a feeling it is going to a long winter.

I love peonies - they bloom around my birthday, the pink ones are so sweet and a sure sign summer is on the way.  I used Caboodles Set F, Copic markers and papers.

I was looking through some samples which had rounded corners and thought I haven't used my corner rounder in ages so I pulled it out.  I also pulled out my Cuttlebug and embossing folders. 

Copics: R32, 35, 37, G82, 94, 99, YR21, 23, 24

I love how this card came out.  A great one for upcoming Spring birthdays.

The second card uses Outdoor Adventure.  This fisherman was so fun to color.  I used Copics from multiple sets on this one - Set F with the reds and skin tones from G, blues from set C.

Copics: G82, 94, 99; E55, 57, 59; YR21, 23, 24; B41, 45, 37; R29, 59

This is such a fun set.  If only fishing were this easy, that they jump into the boat.  I'm not sure who this card is for but I'm sure I will find someone to send it to.

Hope you enjoyed some spring images with Christmas just a few days away.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
