A Great Friend


Yesterday was another grey day around my neck of the woods. We did have a tiny break were the sun shared its glorious light only for a few minutes though... but you know I'm not complaining all this rain is forcing all the tiny hidden buds to burst wide open. It's encouraging life after many months of apparent death. So while the rain falls here or there where you are at remember it's simply helping the earth to grow :)  

Now for a card. Lately I've been coloring with pencils. I've tried markers but I guess I'm going to need a tutorial for that ;) But color pencils is a whole different story. I absolutely love the simplicity and the detail it adds to any image.

Isn't this image from Hero Arts sweet?! The photo doesn't do justice but it gives you an idea.

Here's the full card. I love this color combo so much I might have to use it on other projects.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your day is bursting with joy and gladness and some creativity ;)
