Pink and Green Angel


Hello! I am still working on building up my stash of standard A2 size card that can go through the mail a little easier without incurring additional postage charges. If I have to pay extra postage for each card then I end up sending out fewer cards. I still make lots of the others but most of those will either be mailed in a box with other goodies or hand delivered. This angel image is from Karen Lockhart stamps and is one that I actually colored a while back using Prismacolor pencils. I need to pull my pencils out more often, I enjoy coloring with them but more often than not I find myself reaching for my Copics when I sit down to color. Jenna and Samantha use the pencils far more often than I do now, especially Jenna. The papers are from Making Memories and then I used a Fiskars lace border punch.

I want to say a big thanks to everyone for the encouraging comments on my Fitness Journal. My SIL loved it. We have both started the 5K training program and that gives us both something to record our progress in. We have gotten most of the family on board with us too. I can't wait to see that changes in all of us. I do have another blog that you can get to from my sidebar that details my journey to a healthier life.

It can be hard to make a good flat card and you did a great job! Your card is lovely! Hope all is well in your world!

Gina, this came out beautifully! I really like the color combo you chose and the angel is colored beautifully. I need to follow your lead and build up more cards in my stash that just take one stamp to mail. :)

Well I definitely need to check out your other blog, fitness and better health, two things I need desperately! This is a cute card, I like the Lockhart images. And I am the reverse, when I want to color I reach for my pencils, I have to force myself to use the copics.
