Wonderful Wednesday!

Good Day card crafters!
I hope this post finds you well, happy and creating.  I want to share my latest card, made a few weeks ago. I made it for my oldest son Ethan who recently turned 19 years old.  Goodness, where does the time go?  It seems like only yesterday he was learning to walk, then in the blink of an eye, he's a college student.  Enjoy every moment with your children because time flies! :)
Don't forget to join up for candy over at Crafty Friends.  I'm sponsoring their candy giveaway and you can sign up until June 30th.
I added color to my illustration with Copics instead of Prismas.  I think it worked out well.  Have a perfect week everyone.
Hugs and happy crafting! -Kim

Have a Colorful Saturday!

Good morning paper craft world!  I hope this day finds you creating something amazing.  I've been few and far between in my posts.  This will probably be the standard for the summer but I want you to know I'm still card crafting and sketching.  New digis will arrive soon.  I want to share a color project using one of my digis but first you should know that I am sponsoring a new Card Challenge called Crafty Friends Challenge Blog
Crafty Friends is starting off their challenge with a candy giveaway.  Oak Pond is sponsoring this month long entry and will give the winner their choice of free digis from my Etsy Studio.  Make sure to check it out.
I've been spending a lot of time away from my husband and two sons traveling to another state.  My dad is in the hospital recovering from surgery to remove a cancerous tumor (and doing awesome BTW) When dad naps, sometimes I work on color application of my illustrations.  Having an image ready to go makes creating a card super fast.  Here is OPC's Peek-a-Boo Dragonflies
in progress...

...and finished...
My Copics are 600 miles away in the Studio, I used Prismas to color my image.  I can pack up my Prismas in 5 minutes and if I lose one, I won't need to mortgage my home to replace it...  ;)
I hope you enjoyed seeing my color post.  If you want to purchase Peek-a-Boo Dragonflies, you can follow the link:
Keep crafty and don't forget to check out the Crafty Friends Challenge!  Hugs and happy crafting. -Kim
