Thinking of You, Outlawz

Good Morning, Bloggers and I trust your day is off to a great start. Here's a card to share this morning and it's an image I had colored some time ago (ah, a snippet), but had not put on a card. An earlier post was a Thinking of You that I intended to link to the Outlawz Friday Copic/Promarker Challenge, DUH, I didn't have any copic coloring on it! Not sure where my mind went to visit that day <g>. This image was in the 'debris' pile, so I decided I'd use it and make a cheery card; I liked it better anyway as a Thinking of you card. The gray was not all that cheery, so things worked out for the best after all.
- Image from Heartfelt Creations, colored with copics, Glossy Accents on cherries & Cardinal's beak
- Diecut with S/binders 11
- sponged with DI Tea Dye while still in the die
- Bazzill textured paper cardbase
- red circle, green square (snippets), embossed with SU mesh EF
- Thinking of You Elizabeth Crafts Design die

So...I'm off to link this with Outlawz Friday Copics/Promarkers Challenge and since I also have some snippets, I think I'll mosey over to the Playground I hear there is some fun activities going on with the girls there. Almost always something going on! Won't you come along & see what we can get into? As always, thanks for joining me today. Have a great day, and Hugs. Oh yes, nearly forgot to Congratulate Mrs. A on her win at the Playground! She won a nifty stamp set.

Hi Mary, lovely card, and great coloring. I love Cardinals, especially how they show up so pretty against our drab trees right now. I have a very territorial male, he chases all the others away! Thanks so much for visiting my blog, hope you had a wonderful day! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

Love the look of the tea dye that you sponged on while still in the die...such a lovely look.
Wonderful Christmas card Mary! That is a great stamped image and you have coloured it beautifully. I hold my breath when I colour with red as it always bleeds for me...I have learned the hard way not to colour right up to the lines!

Thanks for the cold light of day I realize that I rushed those 6 cards...I could have embossed the card stock strips for a little more interest...and maybe used some MB corner dies for some pizzaz...but they are done and I have to remind myself that they are for 5 and 6 year olds who really don't care!

Hi Mary. I love the look of this pretty Cardinal Christmas card. I always forget about inking the image while the die is still in place . . . thanks for the reminder.

Lovey cheery card Mary. I love the red cardinals, we have two pairs that visit our garden, they look lovely against the snow. We're supposed to get some more tomorrow too!
