Knitted with love

Happy Tuesday!

I thought this stamp was adorable and was begging to be colored.  I haven’t colored a House Mouse image in a long time.  I forgot how much fun they were.  I used my Copics.  I am still working on improving my Copic skills.  I am often very intimidated by them and just reach for my dependable prismacolor pencils.  I used shimmer chalks to fill in the background.  The paper is from the DCWV Nana’s Nursery Baby Girl collection.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the inside.  I used the matching sentiment from House Mouse.  I stamped it in New Leaf ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils.  I was afraid the Copic marker would bleed through to the back.  I added a little heart sticker to the center of the “o”.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far.  My day was crazy yesterday.  I had to take my son Malachi to his nephrologist.  We received a great report.  He is off his meds and still in full remission.  We don’t have to see her again for six months.  Praise the Lord!  He is so awesome!

Have a blessed day!

I looooove getting reports from the doctor....especially my nephrologist... Your card is so cute and the inside sentiment is just perfect. I'm intimidated by my Copic's also. Glad to know I'm not the only one.
