See me as Guest Designer this week!

This week, I am Guest Designer on Jennifer Restivo's "Crafty Card Gallery".  

I've made a slew of cards -- my favorite thing to do -- which I'll be featuring in no particular order here and on Jennifer's blog this week.  I'll post them here too, and perhaps offer a few more tidbits of information here that I might not be able to, over there.  

So sit back, grab a cuppa'Joe, and read on:

Today, let me show you a quick and cute get well card that I made for one of Madison's (at Funky Cards) "I Feel The Love" kids. Every month, Madison features heartbreaking stories of kids who are hospitalized and can use some of our cheer.

The latest is for Kate. To make it, I used my favorite Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker (NSS) papers (from the Get Well collection) for the background, a digi-image that I colored using Prisma pencils and Copic markers. I embellished with banner stickers, Kate's name, more NSS stickers, two yellow brads and a stitched-on piece of twine to serve as a banner rope. Cute, ehh?

Right now, I'm loving doing the coloring. I feel like I'm back in grade school, relaxing as a child without a care in the world. Hubs likes it when I sit and watch the Phillies baseball games with him at night, but I like to keep busy. So last night, I must've colored (no joke) at least a dozen images while watching the Phils shut out their divisional rivals, next-closest in the standings Braves (booooo!), 9-0. YAY!!
