April Showers and May Flowers

Long-time no speak, no? I know it has been a while, but I’ve gotta tell you, April was a rainy whirlwind and here we are, already May! Last month my family was so busy with lots of fun stuff (birthdays, Easter, parties), and some not so fun stuff (ill family members, computer crashes, crazy work schedules), but we made it out of April alive! So far May has also started out rainy and crazy, but I’m optimistic that the sunshine is on its way!

One of the fun things we got to enjoy was a birthday party for my friend’s daughter – a sweet, energetic 7-year-old with beautiful, fiery red hair and a spirit to match. I made this card for her and I call it “Happy Birthday B!” The image is called Spring Bringer (hint hint, Mother Nature), and it’s by Wee Stamps.

I was really missing the vibrancy of spring when I coloured her up so I made her as bright and colourful as possible! I also experimented with a red hair combination because I wanted her to have B’s hair colour. This project was so much fun and seeing it in its new home on my friend’s mantel makes me so happy. Usually the images I colour end up in my copic journal and it’s only recently that I’ve started to put them on cards. It really is rewarding to see how much people appreciate the work, which makes my hobby all the more fun.

Happy spring, I hope yours is filled with sunshine and lots of colour!

Merry Christmas! Or, Yes, I know Christmas is finished, but I wanted to show off my Christmas cards and I didn’t get around to it before…

I know, I know, what the heck is she talking about? Christmas is finished!

Well, it’s January 10 and I’m back at work, as are many of you, I imagine. This post is to celebrate those of us who have made it through one of the most difficult weeks of the year, if you ask me. It’s the “holidays are finished, I’ve stayed up way too late over the last two weeks, and I have to wait until the summer, or at least my beach vacation to be off work again” week. It’s the week that kicks off what my boss describes as “the armpit of the year”.

Soooo, I thought I would post a few of the Christmas cards I made for my lovely family over the holidays. At least they are cheery. I’m pretty happy with most of them – I even tried my first night scene!

Well, happy return to work week, and keep your chin up! And don’t worry, no more Christmas-themed stuff until at least August.
