Wish big...

Hello my dears! It's hump day and that means the weekend is going to be here before you know it! I hope you've had a great week so far and were able to get lots of crafting done.

Me, hmmmmmmm, not so much. I have injured my back and find sitting almost too much to bear, but thankfully I'm going to a pain management specialist and I think I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel. So a short post for today...

Today I'm posting a card front I made for our Diana at her request. I have 5 actually, but will put them in later posts. They are now in the mail and on their way to her.

So here's the first one I did...I hope you like it! I have used Summer Flower Tilda Mini (she came in a bundle with Water Can Tilda) and she is available from Diana at a super great cost. You can find her here.

I'm sorry I didn't keep track of the Copics I used on any of the card fronts. I was trying to get them done in spurts, so I kept putting away my copics without keeping a list. On his card I used a GoKreate die which I had sometime ago cut and then didn't use. So I paired it with another scrap of paper to build some layers. Everything on this card is from my stash - an inventory reduction you could say.

Here is a closer look at how I colored this sweetie...

And the artistic view...

Well, thank you so much for visiting my blog again this week. I will not be making any more posts until next week, so be sure to come back! I am always so encouraged by the wonderful comments you leave for me!

Blessings and hugs,
Barb

  8. She's so cute!!!! Your coloring on these minis is amazing...I just can't get my big fingers in those tiny spots! Lol!
    So glad you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel...although the line from A Bug's Life came roaring into my head, "Stay away from the light!" In this case, it's a good thing so go toward it Barb!!!! Lol!
