Sigh…..I think my mojo has blown away with all the windy weather we have had lately…..just cannot get creative!  My friend Maryanne sent me this cute card in the mail earlier in the week, but it was stamped only, not colored (of course  I didn’t take a picture of it), so since the Little Red Wagon challenge this week was to color something, I got my Copics and went to work:


Now of course, I wasn’t thinking about the fact that this is not Copic-friendly paper, and that the dark kraft color would alter the colors I was using….I just went for it and starting coloring!  So it’s not perfect, but the image makes up for it---he just makes me grin!


I did add a sentiment, which of course I stamped crookedly….go figure! 

Cassidy continues to play with her farm animals….today, the piano was their resting place:




I love this picture….I think it looks like she is “conducting” them!


And you might have noticed….yes, she got her hair cut!

I love him! I really like the way the Coopics acted on this paper. Fills my head with wild ideas! Can you send me any details on the image? He's very cute!

Love the new "do" on Cassidy too - she's looking so grown up!

Sweet coloring my friend... I know you'll find your mojo again LeAnne. You do create the sweetest cards. Have a wonderful weekend. *blessings*

I love how you colored on that darker card stock! It looks like a beautiful water color painting! And little Miss
maestro looks so cute with bangs :)
For 2 solid days I couldn't create a thing, but yesterday things finally kicked in again for me, and I blame it on the weather!! It was such a gloomy week, and I'm really happy to see that sun shining today :)

Fabulously coloured image! Love him :) Makes me think of the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Darilng pics of Cassidy. Just love kids and their imaginations!

Cute haircut! I wouldn't have guessed that your scarecrow's look wasn't exactly what you were going for. I love the coloring on kraft-like papers- he just gets a more rustic look this way.

DARLING card, LeAnne! LOVE the watercoloring! And how cute is Cassidy with her bangs?!?! She is just so adorable!

He is the cutest scarecrow and your colouring is always so perfect. I love these vibrant colours.
Well, I have to say Cassidy's hair does look really sweet. What does she think of it? I would be fun to hear her little choir of farm animals.

This scarecrow is adorable and I think you colored him beautifully! Those farm animals really get around don't they?
