Sketch and Bye-Bye Card

Hi there, today I'm posting my card for Bellarific Friday over at Stamping Bella. This week's challenge was to use a sketch, and this was absolutely great timing for me to take part in the challenge because I needed a bye-bye card for one of my colleagues at work. I took my chances with Prismacolor pencils and colored this wonderful Mo's image with pencils and gamsol only. It was quite a challenge, I must tell  you, but I like the end result. My dear colleague almost cried when she got the card earlier today. Gosh, I love it when people say they like my cards! Means the world to me!!! Thank you for stopping by!

Mo's celebrating 100th challenge!

Hello dear visitors! Today I'm posting a card to a 100th challenge/celebration at Mo's Digital Pencil blog - check out all the wonderful creations! Isn't inviting all fans to submit their creations the best way to celebrate?! Totally great idea :-)  My card today is for a close  family friend, and I giggled all the way while creating the card. I really hope he likes it and has a laugh at it too. I love Mo's images - they possess such a great positive energy that I always hope to pass on to the receivers of my cards :-) So, I find myself reaching for her creations over and over again :-) Thank you Mo, and hope to celebrate your 1000th blog challenge!!! Oh, I must mention that the design was inspired by one of the talented designers out there in the WWW, but I cannot recall where I've seen it (must have been some time this summer, though). So sorry I don't remember the name of the person, but I really want to thank her for sharing her creation with the blog world and for inspiration!!!
