Here are a couple more cards I'm getting together to send out to Operation Write Home ...

The first one was done following the
I also combined it with the Splitcoasters color challenge for today: Dusty durango, Pretty in pink and Creamy caramel. I'd link that as well, but the SCS site is down for maintenance. This image is from Whipper Snapper, "Chloe" (which I colored with Copics) and the sentiment is from PTI's Daily Designs Sentiments. The ribbon is generic but matched the pretty in pink - perfectly that is, until I sponged over the cuttlebugged swiss dots with durango to make them pop, lol. The bunny's nose has crystal effects on it and her flowers were outlined with clear gelly roll pen to make it sparkle a little.
Did one for a little girl, so had to balance the scales ... This next card is also a Whipper Snapper image, "Baseball Brandon" that I also colored with Copics. I matted using the Creative Memories Cutting System. The sentiment is also from Whipper Snapper "Little Slugger" (imagine that, lol). I added 3 stars since I knew I was going to send it to Operation Write Home.
Hoping these arrive safe 'n sound so that they can be sent home to someone's little boy and little girl.
Thanks for stopping by ... feel free to leave comments.
