I have not done the weekly Sketch Challenge at SCS is awhile, so this was fun! I have been on a stamp shopping roll lately; I love this Peachy Keen stamp!! So fun to color!!!!

I used the Koh-i-noor woodless colored pencils that Gina K is now selling. They are so so smooth to color with and the colors are so bright!!!

I am still working through my digital scrapping class with Jessica Sprague. I am close to up and race-walking....not yet running...I find that every time I start it, I want to go back to paper! I am going to work on scanning some photos so I have a better selection to work from....I think that is where I am getting stuck...that and wanting to color...the kindergartener in me just keeps on coming out!

stamps: Peachy Keen, stampendous
paper: DCWV
technique: colored pencils with odorless mineral spirits

as for digi scrapping, i promise once you get the hang of it, you'll never look back

What a fun fun card! Love that image and the coloring is awesome!

You'll get the digi scrapping, don't push it, you'll just end up not liking it. You have to be in the mood for it to be fun - like anything else!

Lauri, didn't realize how long it's been you had quite a few posts since I was here last. Love that picture of Vicky what a great one for the occasion which is always bitter sweet in a Mother's eyes. Hard to see them go but happy you taught them well enough that they can leave with confidence. Your Happy Day card with those cute smiling flowers is adorable and so is the chicken one. I keep telling myself I will not buy one more thing for coloring. I have so many different things now. Oh well never say never right? Have a great day and if I don't see ya before the 18th enjoy and tell Vicky Congrats!
